Centrale Nantes & Geps Techno on the FORESEA project

Geps Techno is testing the wave prototype for the IHES project this year at the SEM-REV offshore test site. It is a stand-alone platform and the objective of the tests is to validate the performance of the energy recovery system by stabilizing the platform. The IHES project will demonstrate the technology in operational conditions and develop the design tools and especially the digital models that will optimize the products of tomorrow. Innovation is present throughout this programme: hybrid energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), controlled stabilization, regulation without mechanical sensor etc.
