MMT, Reach Subsea to Work on NEMO Project for DCNS

MMT has been awarded a contract for the OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) NEMO project by DCNS.

The project is jointly developed by DCNS and its partners with purpose to characterize the geophysical and geotechnical context of the area of an offshore power plant with a floating platform and a potential cable route to the town of Bellefontaine in the western coast of Martinique’s Island in the French Caribbean.

This floating platform is anchored in the sea and will use the temperature difference between the warm water at the surface and the cold water in the depths to produce non-intermittent and carbon-free electricity.

MMT  will conduct the survey with resources from the joint venture with Reach Subsea including the DP2 vessel Stril Explorer, equipped with a work class ROV that is mounted with a geophysical set up.

“This is an exciting project for us with interesting geology on volcano slopes in tropical waters. We look forward to safe and fun operation together with DCNS,” says Karin Gunnesson, project manager, MMT

The project is scheduled for two month in the first quarter of 2016.
