The Communauté Pays Basque takes part in the Seanergy trade fair

The Seanergy international trade fair is well established as a major event in the field of Marine Renewable Energy (MRE). From 21 to 24 September, this fair brings international players in this sector together at the Beaujoire exhibition centre in Nantes. Industrialists, political institutions, Regions and universities will be represented by over 200 stands. 

The Communauté Pays Basque will therefore be alongside some twenty other exhibitors in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region pavilion, and will present the Wavepi project (Wave Energy Pilot Site in south Aquitaine). Players will aim to promote the energy potential of the sea swell in southern Aquitaine, highlight the expertise in Aquitaine in the MRE sector and network with industrialists and energy experts in the field.

Seanergy also offers visits to companies, site visits and meetings. On 22 and 23 September, several different topics will be addressed: offshore windfarms, the potential of marine current power, the reality of employment in these sectors, maritime transport, the future of hydrogen, new technologies and innovations, the number of women in high-level posts, and more.

Dozens of countries will be represented and will contribute their experience in this area of Marine Renewable Energy.
