At the beginning of 2021, the Saint-Brieuc team launched the Mock-up project which was assembled onshore in Esbjerg (Denmark) at the Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy facility.

Do you also enjoy watching these marine creatures that surprise and intrigue us?
But do you know the job of a marine mammal observer?
Their mission: to observe marine mammals to better protect them.
Setec In Vivo unveils the results of studies related to species living on and in the seabed, known as benthic biocenoses. Conducted from 2012 to date, the objective was to identify their presence and distribution in order to ultimately determine the environmental impact of the implementation of an offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc.
Accompanied by the consultancy firms Setec In Vivo, Biotope and Quiet Ocean, Ailes Marines is assessing the impact of the construction site on marine mammals.
A few weeks ago, we spoke with Élise Descours, Business Unit Manager at our partner Vulcain. In this interview, Élise explains her main missions and paints a picture of a company that is as successful as it is human. The Business Unit Manager also talks about the wind farm project in Saint-Brieuc Bay.
With the aim of building a project that is both responsible and sustainable, Ailes Marine has surrounded itself with environmental specialists, in particular the marine environment and coastal oceanography consultancy, Setec In vivo. This collaboration, which began nearly ten years ago, is a long-term project.
