Ferland discussed the progress of his company's submerged tidal energy turbine, known as theTidGen™ Power System. Over the course of this year ORPC will install up to 5 of its tidal generators in Cobscook Bay.
Dagher discussed the DeepCwind Consortium's floating wind turbine. While the plan originally called for deployment of the consortium's first prototype floating windmill off Monhegan Island this summer, delays in obtaining several required permits have forced the rollout of the prototype to next year.
