Offshore site mission

Using the well-known expertise of Centrale Nantes in the scope of marine renewable energy, the strategy consists in building up a continuous and pragmatic approach to the testing of technologies, and offers the corresponding facilities and services from the initial proof of concept to the large scale verification of prototypes at sea.

To do that, Centrale Nantes and its Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) has complementary tools and facilities such as numerical simulation means, ocean test facilities and the offshore test site SEM-REV.

As part of its role, SEM-REV follows a research program based on 4 points:

  • P1: Increase awareness of marine environment (resources, impact…)
  • P2: Support the development of MRE Technologies (FOWT, WEC) and components
  • P3: Include all aspects related to Energy (Storage, Transport and Conversion)
  • P4: Address the Security, Safety, Education & Marine Operations challenges
