Video: SEENEOH tidal test site in Bordeaux

The video shows the construction of the recently completed SEENEOH tidal test site on the Garonne river in Bordeaux, France.

SEENEOH tidal test site features three testing berths designed to test tidal devices with either mounted or floating fixation type.

The site became fully operational early in March 2017, when the final testing berth, a floating platform named Bilbao, was connected to the grid.

All three testing berths are connected to the onshore substation through their export cables, with a grid connection that has a total capacity of 250kW.

SEENEOH expects to welcome its first users in the summer 2017.
