SPOTLIGHT ON WESTERN FRANCE


FEATURE SPONSOR


LEADING


NATIONAL FIRST TIDAL TURBINE Sabella stood out as early as 2008 by immersing the first French marine current turbine, ‘D03’, in South Brittany at Odet’s mouth. D03 was a 3-metre diameter pilot turbine with a 30kW output power. This project validated the modular concept and technological choices while demonstrating the relevance of such a new innovative way of producing renewable and clean electricity.


THE CHARGE


Sabella is an engineering and project management firm in the field of marine current turbines, based in Quimper, Brittany in France


Benefitting from the feedback of this major step, Sabella won the national Call for Expression of Interests ‘Ocean renewable energy demonstration devices’ managed by the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) to develop and build an industrial scale tidal turbine: ‘D10’.


FIRST GRID CONNECTED IN FRANCE Sabella has thus received financial


support from the PIA “Investments for the Future Programme” and subsidies from the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) through Brittany Region for this project. After two years of engineering, D10 marine current turbine was built entirely in France between 2012 and 2014. The final assembly took place in Brest, along quayside, from January to April 2015. In May 2015, the submarine electrical cable was successfully laid between
