Floatgen Presentation at FWP
France's First Floating Wind Turbine Presented to FWP Forum Participants
After 2 days of exchanges and workshops in Brest at The Floating Wind Power (FWP) Atlantic Forum, the participants were able to discover Floatgen: the first floating wind turbine in France. The course was set on the SEM-REV, the multi-technology offshore testing site operated by Centrale Nantes.
At this site, by nearly 30 meters deep, are installed the FMGC cast iron shells developed to ballast, stabilize and protect submarine power cables. Céline Favreau from FMGC was able to come on board to visit the wind turbine and also present FMGC, its products and the advantage of taking part in these tests.
This opportunity to participate in such an experience is an opportunity to achieve a unique feedback in real conditions on the performance of the cast iron shells by taking advantage of the measuring instruments and skills of Centrale Nantes.
