Nantes: At the heart of ocean energy in France
With the STX France shipyards and the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire Port, the Pays de la Loire region boasts a long maritime tradition. At the heart of this proud history is Nantes - once the capital of the Dukes of Brittany and now a resolutely modern and vibrant city.
The region is already home to leading ocean energy players such as DCNS, Geps Techno, the West Atlantic Marine Energy Center, SEM-REV and the Ecole Centrale de Nantes and the regional authority is investing heavily in in infrastructure and testing facilities to further boost the sector.
“We are pleased to welcome the forthcoming edition of the Ocean energy Europe annual event to Nantes, in Pays de la Loire.
