19 Sep 2018 Ideol’s first demonstrator is delivering power to the grid

The connection of the electricity export cable and a final series of tests carried out in recent days enabled the Floatgen wind turbine, which is installed 22 km off Le Croisic (Loire-Atlantique), to become fully operational on Tuesday 18 September.

This announcement is a highly symbolic step for Ideol, because this wind turbine is the first operational unit of the floating foundation concept patented by the company. A second unit of the Ideol foundation will soon be operational off Japan.
