EMO-Ocean wave and marine renewable energy

The research of the Ocean Wave and Marine Renewable Energy group focuses on the deterministic propagation of ocean waves and complex sea states, on their interaction with marine structures on large time and space scales and on the performance of wave energy converters and floating offshore wind turbines.

The group has been involved in collaborative projects with academic and industrial partners in France and over the world.

Our research is performed using numerical and experimental approaches. We develop and use:
  • Numerical wave tank (numerical simulation)
  • Centrale Nantes experimental facilities
  • Centrale Nantes offshore test site SEM-REV
Two of our software programmes are now available in Open source: NEMOH and(HOS-OCEAN/HOS-NWT).

The research group is regularly involved in actions to promote science among the general public. In 2015, we organized the 11th edition of EWTEC in 2015 in Nantes (600 participants of 42 nationalities). We initiated the French academic network on Marine Renewable Energy (GDR CNRS 3763 EMR).
The team is also at the initiative of the National Research Group:
"Marine Renewable Energy" (CNRS GDR 3763 EMR).
