It is the only platform of its kind in France which comprises:

  • An offshore test site spanning 1km²
  • A 350m² laboratory
  • A full scale test basin for researchers, engineers and manufacturers

Its work is structured around 3 strategic areas:

To participate in the development of the Marine Renewable Energies industry
To develop new energy production capabilities
To test different methods for the recovery and transformation of energy from the floating wind turbine to the wave energy converter.
