Project overview

HydroQuest and CMN (Constructions Mécaniques de Normandie), with the support of the University of Caen Normandie, successfully installed and connected in 2019 a 1 MW turbine on the test site of Paimpol-Bréhat (Brittany), owned by EDF.

This prototype demonstrated performance of the technology in real conditions. It has been retrieved in October 2021 for being expertised after 2 years and a half of immersion.
