MRE exhibition

Visit the test facilities

Every year, you can visit the test facilities of the laboratory, within the framework of the “Fête de la Science”, during the Centrale Nantes open day. Come to see Ocean basin, Engine test bench and the Atmospheric wind tunnel. You can also meet the researchers and understand their roles.

You can also, since 2020, virtually visit the Centrale Campus and all the test facilities thanks to the ImageInCentrale !


Marine Renewable Energy exhibition

Why floating wind turbines? What are the impacts of MREs on the fauna, flora and the ocean floor? How to recover the energy produced by currents? What is the world resource for wave energy? How to recover the energy produced?

The LHEEA laboratory created an educational exhibition for the general public, high school students and students. The exhibition aims to introduce the general public to the various types of emergent Marine Renewable Energy, to describe how they work as well as the degree of maturity of the technologies involved, while underlining the technological and scientific challenges which have yet to be dealt with.

Exhibition in french. For more details, please contact us.
