Floating Offshore Wind: Becoming a Reality with Dr. Andrew Goupee
Dr. Goupee is the Libra Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maine and has performed research in the areas of solid mechanics, geophysics and marine renewable energy. Currently, Dr. Goupee’s research at UMaine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center employs model testing and numerical methods to investigate the dynamic behavior of offshore floating wind turbines. He will talk about the exciting research and projects at the University of Maine which makes Maine one of the leaders in pioneering offshore wind research here in the US, and may possibly change our energy future.
PMM’s Main Street Gallery. Tickets $8 members and $10 non-members.
When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
