29/04/2019 - 2nd year of monitoring at sea on the Groix and Belle-Île site to study in an integrated manner the impact of floating wind farms

Following the launch of two campaigns at sea in April and August 2018, a new campaign will take place from 8 to 20 May 2019 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 the Groix and Belle-Île Floating Wind Turbines, 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.
