Scientific advances and innovation

  • Propose a study of the logistics of the offshore wind sector and its specificities in the Saint-Nazaire Region, from the onshore productio area, to installation site at sea.
  • Propose specifications for the development of a decision support tool for the flow planning for offshore wind industry
  • Taking into account at the same time the hazards of manufacture, transport and weather.

Expected technical and economic impact

  • Raise awareness of the importance of optimizing logistics flows among industry, from the harbour to the sea.
  • Provide practical solutions to meet the challenges of the sector.
  • Carry out an exploratory study of the logistics problematic of the MRE and identify the associated scientific barriers
