Kick-off meeting for the renewed FLOATGEN project

Seven partners from four European countries gathered at Ecole Centrale de Nantes on June 24th to kick-off overhauled research project configuration on floating offshore wind energy, featuring a France premiere : the FLOATGEN demo project will see the deployment of a 2 MW floating turbine in the Atlantic Ocean, at SEM-REV test site located 12 nautical miles from the city of Le Croisic on the French Atlantic coast.

The objective of the FLOATGEN project is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of floating-wind turbine, in order to expand the development potential of offshore wind farms into more windy and deeper waters that are not currently commercially viable and demonstrate potential in decrease of costs for electricity generation.
