The IBReizh program

In parallel with the deployment of the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, Ailes Marines has created the IBReizh economic development program, designed to support projects in Brittany.

Financed by Ailes Marines and co-piloted by the Brittany Region, this program aims to be part of local dynamics and to focus on actions related to the sea and renewable energies by relying on key players.

IBReizh is a regional program but targets nevertheless the possibilities of support in the department of Côtes d'Armor, in coherence with the location of the offshore wind farm. Several areas of intervention have been identified. They correspond to the commitments of the call for tenders and/or to the will of Ailes Marines to get involved in areas related to its activities, in the territories of the Côtes d'Armor and Brittany.

What actions?

  • Support for the fishing and aquaculture sectors
  • Facilitate professional fishing activities in the offshore wind farm.
  • To support the fishing companies in their adaptation to the new fishing conditions.
  • Support the sustainable development of the sector.
Area of focus:
  • Projects for the benefit of the different components of the sector (upstream support, primary production, first sale, fish trade and processing, distribution and markets).
Selection Grid:
  • The projects must be in line with the strategic development objectives of the committees and/or the territories and with the five themes defined by Ailes Marines with local stakeholders (traceability, enhancement, acquisition and sharing of knowledge, promotion, diversification of sources of income, etc.).
  • Tourism development
  • To promote the attractiveness and development of the territories concerned by the project.

  • To make the offshore wind farm project a vector for the development of the local tourist offer.

  • Define and implement a tourism offer in consultation with local actors.

Area of focus:
  • Projects for the development of tourism in coastal and marine areas in connection with the offshore wind farm. These projects must be located in the coastal and/or retro-coastal areas concerned by the offshore wind farm.
Selection Grid:

    • Integrated Tourism Destination Strategy 2023-2025.

    • Regional Tourism Plan 2020-2025.

  • Support projects of general interest for the preservation of biodiversity and resources.
Area of focus:
  • Projects for the protection and enhancement of the marine environment and biodiversity in coastal areas.
Selection Grid:
  • Projects must be in line with Ailes Marines' strategic objectives in favour of the preservation of the environment and biodiversity (sea and coastline).
