Floatgen at SEM REV test siteFrance’s first offshore wind turbine, the Floatgen, arrived on the Ecole Centrale de Nantes’ offshore test site, 20 kilometres off the town of Le Croisic, on Monday April 30th after ten hours of towing.
 
The hook-up to the mooring lines which had been pre-laid in July 2017 was successfully executed by JIFMAR in the following days. A period of severe weather right after the floater’s installation (5 metres waves and 15 m/s wind speed) proved its sea keeping  performance. The connection to the export cable and to the power grid will be scheduled in the very near future after a last series of tests.
