Every year, offshore installations (scientific bases, oil platforms, offshore wind turbines, etc.) consume the equivalent of all of Europe’s nuclear power output. The problem lies in the fact that they cannot be connected to the grid, meaning they are powered by expensive and polluting diesel generators. GEPS Techno offers an eco-friendly and budget-friendly alternative: autonomous buoys that use the four types of marine renewable energy sources (swells, currents, wind and sun) to achieve 30% savings on offshore electricity bills – without emitting any CO2.
These positive-energy marine platforms were among the winners at the 4th EDF Pulse Awards in 2017. Crowned the winner in the ‘Smart Business’ category, GEPS Techno shows that economic and environmental performance can go hand in hand – even in the middle of the ocean! Jean-Luc Longeroche, CEO of GEPS Techno, was delighted: “Our approach is unlike any other in the modern energy world. Our discussions with the jury were intense yet instructive, and seeing them validate our strategy is a fantastic reward.”
