The research project "FEDRE" (Sustainable Wind Turbine Foundations with REpowering), of which Antea Group is the pilot, was selected as part of the 25th FUI call for projects (“Fonds Unique Interministériel”). This project aims to find innovative and technical solutions for:
- re-equiping existing wind turbines while keeping a part of the foundations,
- designing new sustainable foundations.
This collaborative project associates Insa de Lyon (academic partner), Ménard (ground improvement with rigid inclusions), CTE Wind (civil engineering), Nordex (wind turbine manufacturer and windfarm developer), Parex (manufacturer of special grouts) and Antea Group (project manager, geotechnics, deconstruction, life cycle analysis). This project is certified by Tenerrdis Cluster, based in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.
