      • France Atlantique – Eolink’s flagship project

      • Brest-based Eolink firm is working on a project to float an innovative wind turbine. What makes it special? The usual mast is replaced by a lighter and more rigid pyramid structure, equipped with large diameter turbines. After tests in Ifremer's test basin and then in the Brest harbour, Eolink will continue its tests in 2024 on the SEM-REV test site off Le Croisic, in the Loire-Atlantique region.
      • The 5 MW turbine will supply 7,000 residents with their annual electricity requirements. Eolink has joined forces with Valorem and Ecole Centrale de Nantes to manufacture, install and operate the turbine. The prototype implements an innovative solution which, by reducing the steel mass used for the floater by over 40%, will also reduce the cost of the electricity generated.

        "In 2022, Eolink benefited from a fundraising to boost its technology and anticipate the maturation of its first 5 MW unit. The project also received financial support from ADEME to the tune of €14.9 million as part of the France 2030 plan," explains Antoine Autson, Eolink's administrative and financial manager.
