Creating the multi-purpose maritime platform of the future – help to design its innovative services


Do you dream of taking part in cutting-edge national projects in the maritime sector that feature a major innovative aspect? Are you passionate about applying the latest digital technology to the marine world? Is protecting the marine environment and its biodiversity something you value? Do you think that successfully achieving energy transition is a key challenge ?   


Then RTE need you! 


By 2025, a offshore wind farm of between 400 and 600 MW will be installed off Dunkirk. RTE, French manager of the Réseau de Transport d'Électricité, will be in charge of the electrical connection of this wind farm, including the design, implementation and operation of its first offshore electrical platform, whose primary purpose will be to transform the electricity produced by wind turbines at sea, and connect it to the national terrestrial electrical network.
RTE is launching a challenge of open innovation to find other uses for this electric platform serving the territory.
This exploratory observation aims to find possible ways innovate through the electric platform, serving the territories and many various of the sea.


How can new services be developed and showcased through the new maritime platform?
