Centrale Nantes launched the development of a multi-technology offshore test site (SEM-REV) in 2007 for marine renewable energy testing in real conditions. SEM-REV development has been co-funded by Europe (ERDF), the French government, the Pays de la Loire Region, the Loire Atlantique area and the CNRS.


SEM-REV is now operational with generic permits obtained in 2014 to test WEC, FOWT and their components. Several collaborative research projects have been launched since 2012 and the first large scale demonstrators will be installed in 2017. SEM-REV is also part of the test facilities of the French THEOREM infrastructure, launched in 2016 by Centrale Nantes and Ifremer.
