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 and the CUD are launching an open innovation challenge 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.
