STAFF

  • Manager of the SEM-REV offshore test site
    Centrale Nantes is a French Education and Research establishment with a strong focus on mechanical engineering. One of its research fields concerns marine and ocean engineering, supported by several CNRS Labs (hydrodynamics, structures, materials, soil mechanics and robotics), large experimental facilities (wave tanks, wind tunnel) and a supercomputing facility.

    In this context, the CNRS LHEEA Lab, has developed considerable expertise in Marine Renewable Energy (WEC, FOWT, MCT) over the last 25 years as a partner in European and international projects and networks. To complete its research means and expertise, Centrale Nantes launched the development of a multi-technology offshore test site (SEM-REV) in 2007 for MRE testing in real conditions. SEM-REV development has been co-funded by Europe (ERDF), the French government, the Pays de la Loire Region, the Loire Atlantique area and the CNRS.

    SEM-REV is now operational with generic permits obtained in 2014 to test WEC, FOWT and their components. Several collaborative research projects have been launched since 2012 and the first large scale demonstrators will be installed in 2017. SEM-REV is also part of the test facilities of the French THEOREM infrastructure, launched in 2016 by Centrale Nantes and Ifremer. Project development and test site maintenance are managed by a specific team in the LHEEA Lab, composed of about 8 full time technicians and research engineers from different fields of expertise, based in Le Croisic and Nantes.

    To support the next step of the SEM-REV development, Centrale Nantes is now recruiting the manager for its SEM-REV offshore test site

  • Internship FRyDoM project
    The LHEEA, through the project FRyDoM, has the ambition to develop a new simulator multi-body and multi-physical dedicated to the simulation of the operations at sea. This tool developed under modular shape present most of the bricks necessary for the simulation of floating systems.

  • Internship LHEEA : Comparative study on Floating Vertical and Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines
    Beaucoup de projets se concentrent aujourd’hui sur le comportement en mer des éoliennes flottantes. Le logiciel InWave est développé dans l’entreprise INNOSEA en collaboration avec le laboratoire LHEEA de l’Ecole Centrale de Nantes pour étudier (entre autres) ces systèmes flottant en considérant les efforts hydrodynamiques et aérodynamiques instationnaires. InWave est basé sur un algorithme multi-corps et plusieurs solveurs ont été couplés dans un environnement modulaire : un code hydrodynamique, un code aérodynamique instationnaire ainsi qu’un code dédié à l’ancrage. Un dernier module est dédié au contrôle.

    Le but du stage est d’utiliser le logiciel InWave afin de mener une étude comparative entre ces deux types d’éoliennes, HAWT et VAWT, pour un même type de flotteur. Les différences entre les mouvements des deux types d’éoliennes, leur production électrique ainsi que les tensions dans leurs lignes d’ancrages seront caractérisées sur plusieurs états de mer et avec différents modèles de vent (constants et turbulents).
