All the press releases concerning the news of our Institute and our various R&D activities.
01/03/2021 - Standalone beta versions of the DTOcean+ tools are ready for the demonstration phase
The development of the standalone beta versions of the whole suite of the design tools for ocean energy systems is now completed. The beta versions are now ready for full integration and the demonstration phase against real scenarios. The final open source version of the suite and detailed documentation will be available in August 2021.
19/02/2021 - Final measurement campaign at La Jument lighthouse to optimise the design of offshore wind turbines
France Energies Marines is coordinating two collaborative R&D projects aimed at better understanding and predicting breaking waves in order to optimise the design of offshore wind turbines. Originality of these projects: using offshore structures as experimental devices at scale 1 and carrying out measurements directly in the field. The fourth and final data acquisition campaign at La Jument lighthouse has just begun.
14/04/2020 - Magnetic field of subsea power cables: 1st experimental results on the sensitivity of the European lobster
The behaviour of juvenile European lobsters is not affected by a magnetic field of similar intensity to that measured and modelled at one metre from high power electrical interconnections (1 GW). This is the main result of a study conducted by Ifremer and France Energies Marines, in collaboration with MAPPEM Geophysics, a Breton SME, and the Institute of Marine Research in Norway.
06/01/2020 - New graphic identity for France Energies Marines
After 8 years of activity, France Energies Marines, now the Institute for Energy Transition approved by the French State, has just redesigned its visual identity. This overhaul aims to mark the new dynamic of the structure whose achievements are now carried by a simplified joint stock company.
