The project is being developed by the Eoliennes en Mer Iles d’Yeu et Noirmoutier (EMYN) consortium, which includes Ocean Winds, Sumitomo Corporation, La Banque des Territoires, and Vendée Energie. Despite ongoing contract negotiations, we have started preparations for the mock-up in Hoboken, scheduled for February 2024. If the project proceeds, two phases are planned in Q3 2024 and Q2 2025.  Theodoros Papadimitriou and Panagiotis Maniatis are responsible for engineering and project management.
