Blue H USA eyes Maine coast for wind power

Blue H USA, one of the companies developing wind turbines for deep water wind farms, has been meeting with Maine state leaders about placing a large wind project off the coast of Maine.

Blue H USA is looking for a site that will not have any impact on local fisheries and the environment and is far enough eay from the coast so that any large turbines would not be visible from land. The Maine cost is looking good for an offshore project because it has strong and steady winds all year round.

The Blue H USA two-bladed turbines sit on floating platforms similar to those used by offshore oil drilling rigs and can be located in 150 to 900 ft deep water. The companies early plans call for 90 turbines capable of producing 450 megawatts with more to come.
