  3. Brittany Ferries and CEA Tech, the CEA's technology research department, have signed a cooperation agreement on research and development. This partnership demonstrates Brittany Ferries' commitment to being an innovative company in its industry. To begin this collaboration, two first projects were identified. The first project aims to study the integration of hybrid systems of energy production on a ship (solar, batteries, wind ...) with a view to reducing the environmental footprint. The second is to improve the Wi-Fi service on board Brittany Ferries. Frédéric Pouget, Brittany Ferries' Maritime and Ports Operations Clerk: "We are delighted to be here in Brittany at Navexpo, an international trade fair that highlights the strong dynamics and leadership of the region in France on the maritime domain. If the initial duration of the partnership with CEA Tech is 5 years, for us the ambition of this type of collaboration goes well beyond a contractual duration and is part of a desire for long-term cooperation. This partnership was conceived in a long-term and innovative approach with the ambition displayed for Brittany Ferries to be able to make it evolve technically and sustainably according to the axes of research and development and feedback. " Stéphane Siebert, Director of CEA Tech: "Contributing to the competitiveness of the maritime sector by responding to the need for innovation expressed by our partner is the very essence of CEA's technological dissemination mission. I personally am very pleased with the level of trust established between our two organizations in the service of a unique, environmentally friendly and efficient offer for the company, its employees and its customers. It is a very beautiful collaboration that promises and concretises the involvement of CEA Tech in the Greater West. " Source:
