17/09/2019 - Floating offshore wind farm in France: 2 years of scientific surveys on the Groix & Belle-Île pilot site to study its environmental impact in an integrated manner

Following the three scientific surveys carried out in April 2018, August 2018 and May 2019 on the Groix & Belle-Île pilot site, a new survey took place from 29 August to 8 September 2019 as part of the APPEAL collaborative R&D project, coordinated by France Energies Marines and scientifically managed by the University of Western Brittany (UBO). This new survey continues collecting data on the future pilot site ecosystem: measurements of environmental parameters as well as the collection of plankton and benthic animals.
By combining this information from the field with numerical modelling work, the APPEAL project will make it possible to understand the potential effects of floating wind farms on the functioning of coastal ecosystems. Tools to support the integration of such infrastructures at sea may then be proposed.
