  • Update on the MAN ENERGY SOLUTIONS Chair
    April 29, 2022
    Maritime transport is currently experiencing rapid growth and it is also the most efficient form of transport in terms of GHG emissions (gCO2/Tonne/km). Centrale Nantes, via the LHEEA, and MAN Energy Solutions have been working together on this subject since 2018, as part of an industrial chair on the gradual decarbonisation of marine propulsion and electricity production. Read on for an update on this chair.
  • Enedis undertaking major connection work for SEM-REV

  • Postdoctoral position available in the LHEEA on "full-scale experimental validation of realtime deterministic wave prediction applied to floating wind turbines"
    April 7, 2022
    Centrale Nantes has a new postdoctoral position available within the framework of the EU H2020 FLOATECH project. The overall objective of this project is to increase the technical maturity and the cost competitiveness of floating offshore wind energy. Among the different specific objectives, readiness of a real-time prediction of the wave field from a set of measurements and feeding the wind turbine controller is thought to be improved. Find here the complete offer and the application procedure.

This transnational program is a major component of the MaRINET2 project (H2020-INFRAIA, 2017-2021) aimed at accelerating the development and deployment of Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) technologies.
  • SEM-REV 2.0 kicks off
    April 5, 2022
    Work began offshore ten years ago on installing the export cable, thereby making SEM-REV - Centrale Nantes' offshore test site - a reality. Since then the site has certainly lived up to its initial promise.
  • Analysis of 10 years of SEM-REV metocean data made public
    March 30, 2022
    The SEM-REV offshore test site is tasked with meeting the R&D challenges of Marine Renewable Energy technologies. To this end, measurements have been made on the offshore site since 2009. SEM-REV has just published a report summarising the meteorological and oceanic data from the site, located off the coast of Le Croisic.
  • PIAFF&CO: Project launched to monitor birds and bats around offshore wind farms
    March 22, 2022
    Offshore wind environmental monitoring and impact studies are an important component of the research conducted at the SEM-REV offshore test site. The PIAFF&CO project will improve knowledge of flying fauna - birds and bats - in the vicinity of offshore wind farms. The project is run by Centrale Nantes in conjunction with the Centre d'Écologie et des Sciences de la Conservation du Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, the St Nazaire offshore wind farm and BW Ideol.
