Floating wind farms

29/08/2019

2nd year of monitoring at sea at the Groix et Belle-Île site to study their impact in an integrated manner

Following the two campaigns at sea in 2018 and the one in May, a new campaign takes place from 29 August to 8 September as part of the APPEAL collaborative R&D project, coordinated by France Energies Marines and scientifically managed by the University of Western Brittany. This campaign will continue, on the same site as last year, that of the future pilot farm of Les éoliennes flottantes de Groix et Belle-Île, to collect data on the 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.
