Cable from Aqua Ventus Turbine to Connect in Boothbay Region, Maine
The New England Aqua Ventus I wind turbine will reside off the coast of Monhegan Island, Maine and needs a cable to connect it to the mainland power grid. A seabed survey starting March 8 and running through April 4 will help to plot the undersea cable route with the goal to connect it in the Boothbay region. New England Aqua Ventus LLC will lead construction, deployment, and operations for the single 10- to 12-megawatt wind turbine. The floating turbine is a demonstration project intended to evaluate the technology.
