SPOTLIGHT ON WESTERN FRANCE


THE BRETON CLUSTER


FEATURE SPONSOR


THE BEAUTY OF TIDAL EVOLUTION


BPN MRE Cluster is where the Breton innovative industry concentrates its skills, performance and competitiveness to develop the marine renewable energies


As of 2010, BPN MRE Cluster intended to offer no-nonsense support to the Breton businesses that were pioneering the sector of sustainable marine energy. BPN thus became the first-ever cluster where the full scope of industrial skills were to be found, from the design and building to the maintenance of the largest and most complex systems, in a specifically demanding environment.


DIVERSITY


The strength of BPN MRE Cluster is its diversity and the operational effectiveness of its 147 members, all of whom are determined to work responsibly towards the quality development of this emerging industry; they typically get involved in achieving mature floating and ground-mounted offshore windfarms and water turbines projects.


The level of maritime expertise of the Breton industrial network is such that technical risks are aptly managed in the most challenging maritime environments an essential asset for contractors.


ENCOURAGING SYNERGIES


BPN MRE Cluster is the hub of a full range of innovative and very high standard skills and its purpose is to encourage the synergies among businesses and industries to develop projects regionally, but also across France and abroad.


The MRE Cluster workgroups are proactive; over the past few years, they have issued several feasibility studies and industrial patterns and have delivered the best solutions, leading to minimise risk while factoring in the technical and technological constraints with a constant concern for costs and deadlines.


FIGHTING SPIRIT


There is ample evidence for the fighting spirit of the Breton industry: it is indeed in the pole position to win the strategic race for the marine renewable energies a major sector in the overall competitiveness of the maritime industry.


In 2017 and in future years, BPN MRE Cluster will keep on supporting the project developers, industrial companies, suppliers and ship handlers who work together with the service providers to assert the excellency of the Breton MRE industry.


BPN


The abbey at Mont Saint-Michel is a joy to behold. Perched atop a small rocky islet between Normandy and Brittany, it’s an architectural marvel, having evolved over centuries to adapt to the challenges posed by conditions in the surrounding bay – home to the strongest tides in Europe


And that’s no small claim. Europe’s Atlantic coastlines are perhaps the world’s most important resource for wave & tidal power. Yet, despite its huge potential, the continent’s oceanic energy sector has struggled to keep up with the growth of wider renewable sources such as wind, hydro and solar.


REASONING The reason is simple. While the high density of water means wind and tidal solutions can produce huge volumes of energy at relatively low speeds, commercial momentum has shifted to the offshore wind sector – a more mature market, with reliable solutions that can cost-effectively produce significant amounts of power.
