Equipment

The SEM-REV sea test site has infrastructure and equipment linking  the coastline to the offshore test site to enable the electrical connection of the site and its operations:

The onshore electrical substation


It is connected on one side to the electrical ENEDIS network (French distribution system operator) (red and green lines) and to the subsea export cable on the other side (purple line).

The export cable


20kV-8MVA and 24 optical fibers run to the middle of the offshore test site. It is connected to a submarine electrical station called Hub.

The connection Hub


It is a submarine electrical station (Hub) enabling three devices to be connected simultaneously (WEC or FOWT).

Offshore zone


The offshore test site represents a marked out offshore zone of 1 km².

Monitoring tools


The site is equipped with oceanographic and meteorological monitoring tools.
Mesure du vent et des paramètres locaux par une bouée météorologique
Wind monitoring and local parameter monitoring


Waves monitoring with two directional Datawell buoys and an ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler)

Current monitoring with ADCP and water level monitoring (tidal range monitoring in Nantes-Saint-Nazaire harbor)
