PIAFF&CO R&D PROJECT

Piaff & coBW Ideol is part of the PIAFF&CO project to improve knowledge of flying fauna - birds and bats - in the vicinity of offshore wind farms. The project will use unique feedback from Floatgen, our floating wind turbine in operation in France, and in situ data from the SEM-REV test site. 

The project is run by Centrale Nantes in conjunction with the Centre d'Écologie et des Sciences de la Conservation du Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle and the St Nazaire offshore wind farm.
