DCNS Deploys First Paimpol-Bréhat Tidal Turbine in France

The first tidal turbine for the Paimpol-Brehat tidal project has been installed by DCNS off the coast of Brittany, France.

The Paimpol-Brehat project, jointly developed by EDF and DCNS, will see another tidal turbine installed at the project site in the following months.

The first turbine was deployed using dedicated barge designed by DCNS/OpenHydro, with the help of twenty employees from the two companies.

DCNS will now connect the turbine to the French grid using the subsea converter constructed by GE.

The converter will transfer power produced by turbines to an onshore substation in Ploubazlanec that will feed the electricity to the French grid.
