Marine Energy

Artelia proposes assistance services to offshore wind farm developers, providing its expertise with regard to the hydraulic, hydro-sedimentary and environmental impacts of the facilities, the maritime and navigation risks and the hydrodynamic forces involved in designing the foundations and submerged structures. Artelia is also strongly associated with the technical and environmental aspects of several projects aimed at making productive use of current energy (marine current turbines), ocean thermal energy (OTEC) and wave energy. Artelia has also developed skills and experience in the design and study of submarine cables and the associated landfall structures. Artelia is devoting considerable resources to research and development in this field, which led to a patent for wave energy recovery being registered in 2010.
