Latest news!

The new moorings of the Marineff project have been immersed on the BecFer site by the MNHN in Dinard.

Indeed, the extension of the MARINEFF project has not only allowed us to add 14 months of environmental monitoring but also to add two more experimental sites in the bay of Dinard.

These last moorings, like the previous ones, were produced by ESITC Caen last June, and were immersed by MNHN Dinard on 11 July 2022.
