GEOCORAIL Signs Agreement with FLUXEL to Install a Testing Facility in the Fos Oil Port (Bouches-Du-Rhône, France) and Reinforce its Operational R&D

GEOCORAIL announced the signature of an agreement with FLUXEL SAS for the installation of an R&D base in the Fos terminal (Bouches-du-Rhône). GEOCORAIL will thus benefit from an ideally located site (close to a TGV station and the Marseille airport), with direct access to sea water. The company will install a 40 sq.m. covered test bench equipped with 45 sea water tanks with independent generators, allowing the testing of multiple operational parameters in parallel. The whole setup will be operational by the end of June 2016. It will supplement the R&D currently carried out at the Châtelaillon-Plage site (Charente-Maritime, France) as well as within the ANR Ecocorail program with three French universities (La Rochelle, Caen and Nouméa).
