Specific skills in the MRE field

The THeoREM facilities can test oceanographic equipment and models of floating or underwater systems, and cover a wide range of applications: sea behaviour studies,  wave/wind and wave/current combined effects, performance measurements for marine renewable energies, immersion constraints, hydrodynamic structures, etc.

Test facilities applicable to MRE

The THeoREM network includes:

  • Centrale Nantes’ ocean test facilities (3 tanks of different capacities) and its SEM-REV offshore test site,
  • Ifremer‘s deep water wave tank – equipped with wave and wind generators – and its Sainte-Anne-du-Portzic test station (near Brest), as well as its wave-current flume tank at Boulogne-sur-Mer.
