General Electric’s unprecedented deal with Alstom was signed in June. In it, the American group stated its willingness to establish its global headquarters for the marine renewable energies in Bouguenais, a suburb of Nantes. The news is of vital importance for the emerging sector in the region.


The region has gained a new dimension in the marine renewables sector. As well as the Jules Verne Institute and Technocampus Océan, Bouguenais will now play host to the board and R&D activity of General Electric’s marine renewable division.
