Other names Hywind Maine Pilot, Boothbay Harbor correct
Country name United States correct
Region Maine correct
Comments Statoil intends to build upon the Hywind Demo experience in Norway, expand economies of scale, and further optimise the Hywind technological concept through the installation and operation of a multi turbine offshore wind park that incorporates larger turbine units.

It is more likely that the project will consist of four 3MW turbines, according to a presentation given in Q2 2013 by the American Wind Energy Association this will be the case.

One of seven projects selected for Offshore Wind Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects(OWATDP) initiative. Three of the seven will be selected to receive $47 funding.
correct
Round (or category) OWATDP, Unsolicited Lease Application, Maine RFI, correct
Development status Cancelled correct
Comments on the status In July 2013 Statoil has put the project on hold after new Maine legislation created uncertainty regarding on the final approval being given. The legislation reopens competition and allows the University of Maine to submit a rival bid.

BOEM issued the Request for Interest (RFI) as well as the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Statoil Project in the Federal Register in August 2012. The BOEM Notice of Determination of No Competitive Interest for the area requested by Statoil North America for a commercial lease was published in the Federal Register on December 19, 2012.

The next step consists of the publication of the Determination of No Competitive Interest (DNCI) by BOEM in the Federal Register. Then, the applicant (Statoil NA) has to submit the Constructions and Operations Plan (COP) and BOEM will analyse lease issuance and COP approval under NEPA and other laws (conduct EIS).
