25 promising companies will be introducing their latest technologies on the French Pavilion at Oceanology International in London, from 17th – 19th March 2020.

LONDON - eTradeWire -- French specialists in oceanological industries are expanding their expertise across emerging industrial sectors. Alongside the traditional marine-based sectors (transport, fishing and seafood, naval and nautical industry, submarine cables & energy resources), French companies continue to innovate and lead the way, across areas including biotechnologies, renewable energies & mineral resources.

With a maritime surface area of 4.2 million square miles (11 million sq km) 97% of which are in France's overseas territories, the French maritime economy has the 2nd largest global maritime space and Europe's leading seaboard. It is thus unsurprising that France are leaders in the maritime trade. France's marine industry is made up of 4 major groups: shipbuilding, marine renewable energies, nautical industries & services, and offshore operations.

It is ranked 6th in the world, & 2nd in Europe for shipbuilding (sales of £9.5bn in 2018), and as for Renewable Marine Energy, its energy recovery potential is among the largest in the world. In the field of Ports/Maritime Transport, France is ranked as the 5th European port power, with 7 major maritime ports with high-quality infrastructures and modern facilities.
