ELogistics providers involved in the Marine Renewable Energies and the relevant actors of this industry will find at Port-La Nouvelle made-to-measure facilities. It consists today to a first specialized terminal proposing reinforced quay for heavy-lifts and land space for building companies intervening in the construction of floats. Thisfirst zone allows Port-La Nouvelle to put itself at the service to the ecologic transition and green marine energies, a sector that the SEMOP intends to boost within the coming years. Port-La Nouvelle can indeed serve the offshore wind farms located off the French coast of the Mediterranean but also serve as a base for more distant projects. The area will be completed by other developments responding to the next tenders in the sector.
