Discover the MRE terminal in Brest!

On Thursday 18 November, Bretagne Ocean Power invites you to discover the MRE terminal of the port of Brest. During this technical visit, you will be able to appreciate the potential of this infrastructure, as well as the industrial activities currently installed, related to the Ailes Marines project. A visit to the Navantia and Windar workshops is planned.

The port of Brest has a new terminal entirely dedicated to MRE projects: 40ha of industrial lots connected to maritime and transport networks, 400LM of heavy load quay in a accessible and sheltered bay. Thanks to its strategic location, it is close to the French and European wind farms. The port of Brest is also the first French port for ship repair and construction.

This visit is realized with the support of Iberdrola.
