Floatgen : live construction cam and new dedicated website


Sept 12th 2016 – The Floatgen project, which will result in the installation of France’s first offshore wind turbine, has unveiled its new website (live.floatgen.eu). This new feature takes place as the floating foundation’s construction has already began at Saint-Nazaire harbour.


Sept 12th 2016 – The Floatgen project, which will result in the installation of France’s first offshore wind turbine, has unveiled its new website (live.floatgen.eu). This new feature takes place as the floating foundation’s construction has already began at Saint-Nazaire harbour.


In order to monitor as close as possible the progression of this remarkable project, the project teams have developed a communication tool which propose to both watch the construction in real time – thanks to the implementation of a first photo box (a second one will be set up soon) in the immediate vicinity of the site – and stay informed about the next steps to come. The website also encapsulates the goals and applications of the project.


The construction advances at a rapid pace as most of Floatgen mooring system’ materials have already be unloaded at Saint-Nazaire harbour (chains, buoys… under the responsibility of Ecole Centrale de Nantes), as well as the wind turbine. The barge on which the construction is taking place (led by Bouygues Travaux Publics) is already in position Quai des Charbonniers.
