O’Malley to make offshore wind announcement

Gov. Martin O’Malley and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell are scheduled to make an announcement about progress in developing offshore wind off the coast of Maryland.

Tommy Beaudreau, director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Mark Rice, CEO of Maritime Applied Physics Corporation also are scheduled to attend the event in Baltimore at the Maritime Applied Physics Corporation headquarters.

O’Malley pushed for legislation to create a framework to develop offshore wind off the coast of Ocean City, and the General Assembly approved it in the last legislative session.
