Final trials will kick off next week at French river tidal test site Seeneoh in Bordeaux ahead of commissioning this summer.

The site's plug-and-play platform featuring three berths with an overall capacity of 250kW will be tested for a month.

The €3m project has been developed by Cerenis, Energie de la Lune, SEML Route des Lasers and Valorem.

Seeneoh (Site Expérimental Estuarien National pour l'Essai et l'Optimisation d'Hydroliennes) is partially funded through French and EU subsidies and loans.

Public sector investor Caisse des Dépôts recently chipped in €400,000.
