Floatgen breaks new records in 2020

Floatgen, the 2 MW floating wind turbine, installed at the Sem-Rev test site (off Le Croisic), produced 14% more power in 2020 than in 2019, reaching an annual total of 6.8 GWh.

After exceeding expectations in 2019, the Floatgen wind turbine sets a new record in 2020 by producing 6.8 GWh, for a total of 12.8 GWh in two years.

Moreover, a new capacity factor record was reached in February 2020 with more than 66%.

The wind turbine faced very challenging weather conditions, with maximum wave heights of nearly 11 meters in February 2020. The excellent performance and seakeeping performance of Ideol's patented Damping Pool® technology are thus once again confirmed.

Given these performances, Ideol has confirmed its partnership with Ecole Centrale de Nantes, which operates SEM-REV, the site on which Floatgen is installed, and signed an agreement which extends the operation of the floating wind turbine by 3 years.

These 3 additional years will allow Ideol to pursue its research activities in order to further optimize its solution.

Floatgen remains the first and only offshore wind turbine installed in France.

At a time when many commercial projects are announced around the world, and in particular the imminent call for tenders for a 250 MW commercial farm in southern Brittany, these new results confirm Ideol's leadership and its position as a key player in the global floating wind market.
