What types of services have you provided for Ailes Marines?

"Ailes Marines has asked us to supply a network of seven oceanographic buoys for meteorological and environmental measurements to monitor the construction of the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc. These oceanographic buoys, developed entirely by NKE Instrumentation, will be equipped with the new WiMo multiparameter probes to measure in real time the turbidity level at 1.50 meters below the water surface and at 3 meters below the seabed. We look forward to working alongside Ailes Marines to provide clean energy in France, thanks to our state-of-the-art technology dedicated to substations and our expertise in integrating renewable energy into the onshore power grid. »

How many jobs were involved in this service for how long?

"Eight employees worked full time on the manufacture of the seven buoys for four months and three employees will be responsible for the operational maintenance mission for 41 months. During these more or less long missions, they resided permanently on the territory. »

Why did you respond to the Ailes Marines call for tenders?

"This call for tenders will allow us to implement all our know-how simultaneously and for a long period of time and we hope to quickly demonstrate it to future European customers. We will be responding to similar calls for tender in Germany, Scotland, Spain, etc. in the autumn.
