A New Directory of Breton Companies Involved in Offshore Renewable Energy to Help International Actors Find Suppliers in this Field

14 Jun 2022

When Brittany's know-how is attracting the attention of all the international players in the Offshore renewable energy field, Bretagne Ocean Power facilitates the search for suppliers capables of meeting their needs on projects in France and internationally. This French/English online directory lists 165 specialized companies that already have 260 references, including worldwide. In Brittany, many projects are being developed in all offshore wind and marine technologies (offshore wind turbines, tidal turbines, wave turbines, etc.) including the world's first floating wind farm project. Among the Breton companies, 16 of them will present their expertise at the international Seanergy exhibition.

Suppliers with diversified skills, validated in France and internationally

A total of 165 Breton companies are currently identified in the directory compiled by BDI, the economic agency of the Brittany Region, classified by skills: production, studies / project development, construction, installation / logistics, operation / maintenance and support services. 

Among these companies, a hundred have successfully signed 260 contracts in offshore wind and marine technologies in France and abroad. This know-how, which has been validated by project owners, can be found across the entire value chain: environmental studies and measurements, engineering and equipment, metal construction, electrical equipment, energy storage and conversion, operation and maintenance. With the construction of current wind farms and the development of offshore renewable projects, other references are to come.

16 of them will be present on Bretagne Ocean Power stand at Seanergy 2022 forum from 15 to 17 June 2022 in Le Havre :
