Tidal energy represents a strong potential: the geographical situation of France, but also of the United Kingdom, being favourable to the development of this renewable marine energy, the market should benefit from a strong development in the coming years.


To produce several thousand 8 m long composite turbine blades, a consortium of regional SMEs has been formed to develop an automated manufacturing process. The series production of low-cost, high-volume hydro turbine blades should make it possible to meet the needs of the marine renewable energy market.


This project aims to develop a series of manufacturing, automated, low cost and large volume tidal blades. In order to have the closest possible future industrial data applications, specifications have been forwarded by a key player in the sector. This project brings together a set of regional SMEs.
