Marineff Brochure

The partners, objectives, work packages… you will know everything about the Marineff project !

The MARINEFF project will be presented in Brussels!

On October 19th, 2022, the Speeding Up Nature Positive Offshore Energy Infrastructure Deployment conference will be held in Brussels.

The objective of this conference is to discuss the challenges and possible solutions to accelerate the deployment of offshore energy infrastructure while restoring European marine ecosystems.

The added value of the MARINEFF project in this conference is to raise awareness among stakeholders developing offshore wind energy with the issues related to the impact of electrical connections on biodiversity. Presenting MARINEFF will be an opportunity to show that before the deployment of infrastructures, it is possible to better plan the construction phases and limit the impact on the underwater environment.

Ecological Enhancement for Marine Infrastructure Workshop

On October 11th-12th, 2022, a workshop on the Ecological Enhancement for Marine infrastructures will take place in Bournemouth (UK). It is organised by the MARINEFF, SARC and 3DPARE projects.

Participation in this event is by invitation only.

This workshop will give the opportunity to exchange on the projects, the main results and the knowledge of each.

At the same time, the next SCM of the MARINEFF project will take place at the partner Bournemouth University.

Feedback on the submarine duplex on September 16th, 2022

A submarine duplex took place on September 16th, 2022 in Saint-Malo, organised by the partner MNHN of Dinard.

The extension of the MARINEFF project was an opportunity to propose a new format for the dissemination of environmental monitoring results!

The press and the partners of the MARINEFF project were invited.

We were on board of a SMPE (Saint-Malo Plongée Emeraude) boat, moored at a MARINEFF mooring on the Bizeux site and two divers were at a depth of 16 metres to show us and comment on the results of the project.

Proceedings of the MARINEFF International Conference are published!

On the occasion of the MARINEFF International Conference held from 3 to 5 May 2022 at ESITC Caen, a call for submission of papers was launched.

Those interested could submit their scientific papers related to the field of green maritime infrastructure, design, construction materials and marine biodiversity.

That is why the MARINEFF project team is pleased to announce the publication of these articles!

They are now available on the editor website. It can be accessed by clicking on this link.

Enjoy your reading!

On the way to ECSA 59!

From 5 to 8 September 2022, the ECSA 59 International Conference will be held in San Sebastian, Spain.

This conference aims to address issues in the field of estuary and coastal seas management.

This is a theme in which the Marineff project fits.
That is why it will be presented by partners from the University of Southampton and Bournemouth University at this event.

New immersion following the extension of the Marineff project!

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.

Marineff International Conference

ESITC Caen, lead of the European Project MARINEFF, and its partners participated in the Marineff International Conference, being held in Caen (Normandy, France) from 3rd to 5th May 2022.
