In March of 2020, Governor Mills requested that MaineDOT conduct a feasibility assessment at the Port of Searsport to explore the marine infrastructure requirements necessary to construct floating offshore wind turbines. MaineDOT selected Moffatt & Nichol to do the work and within a year, two potential concepts emerged. Concurrently, the State had begun its pursuit of a lease area to develop a floating offshore wind turbine research array as well as a collaborative roadmap planning effort. The latter of which will provide a framework to guide the State of Maine in achieving its offshore wind energy goals. With the public release of the Moffatt & Nichol Searsport study last November, MaineDOT and the State need to continue work to explore the possibilities of bringing this industry to Maine while engaging in a robust stakeholder outreach effort to answer the important questions that will be raised throughout the process. Join Celina Cunningham from the Governor's Energy Office and Matthew Burns from the Maine Department of Transportation to learn more about the two potential concepts and how the public can engage with this process.
