Research and Development

Oceagen project

Oceagen is a research and development project dedicated to the qualification of new components for the mooring system. 

Ideol is the pilot for this and is working in partnership with IFSTTAR (the French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks) responsible for conducting qualification tests on innovative components (cables, mooring chains and connection parts).

On a wider scale, this project allows the structuring of an industrial sector with a strong technological component and the costs of the floating wind turbines to continue being reduced. surrounded by industrial partners such as Arcelor Mittal, LeBéon Manufacturing, Areva Le Creusot...

Launched in November 2014, Oceagen is supported by ADEME through the Investments for the Future programme.


Lifes50+ project

Lifes50+ aims at driving forward development of the next generation of 10 MW wind turbines. 

The European Horizon2020-funded programme Lifes50+, led by Norway’s MARINTEK, will focus on proving, among 4 solutions including Ideol's, the innovative floating technology that is being developed for 10MW wind turbines at water depths greater than 50m. 


MRCF/Carbon Trust project

MRCF/Carbon Trust focuses on the qualification of : 

  • a more cost-effective global mooring system 
  • synthetic mooring lines

This project includes, in addition to Ideol, 9 other European companies as Bridon, TTI, DNV-GL, Vryhof, Lloyd's Register, ...
