Specific skills in the MRE field

Blue growth is now a reality with the development of Marine Renewable Energy. The PMBA plays a key role in the local stakeholders innovation in the maritime sector by supporting initiatives and pulling together their skills.

Products or services in MRE

The “Pole Mer Bretagne Atlantique” offers a full range of services from identifying projects early to market placement of products and services. The strength of this cluster is to support projects in all their dimensions: identifying innovations, networking skills, mobilizing resources and interventions outside the cluster through a network culture.

Projects in MRE

Some examples of MRE projects involving WEAMEC partners:

  • ABIOP: The impact and scale of biofouling on MRE systems represent a major challenge for engineers in the design and maintenance phases. The aim of the ABIOP project is to provide reliable entry data required for the engineering design. Initially, the project will focus on synthesising in-depth current knowledge of the nature of biofouling along different French maritime coastlines, and on the means to characterise and monitor it.
  • AMM-EMR: This project will identify the main barriers regarding mooring monitoring for floating marine renewables, and more specifically in the field of floating offshore wind.
  • APPEAL: The main objective of the APPEAL project is to implement an approach that brings together natural sciences and human & social sciences to measure the effects of offshore floating wind farms (OFW) on the functioning of coastal socio-ecological systems.
