BARDOT SA among the fastest growing companies in FranceBARDOT SA has been ranked among the fastest growing companies in France by business journal Les Echos and statistics portal Statista in their classification of Growth Champions in France. The Group has scored 202nd position in global ranking, 6th in its Industry (Energy & Environment) and 17th in its region. The ranking, established over 3 million French companies, identifies the 500 businesses with most important organic turnover growth between 2012 and 2015, all industries combined.

Specialized in innovative marine energies, BARDOT SA has developed its activities in the oil & gas and renewable energy sector. In 2015, the Group achieved a turnover of 15.6 million Euros, representing a growth of 165% since 2012. In addition to its headquarters in France, BARDOT SA established regional offices in 6 countries and employs more than 80 people worldwide.

The objectives for 2017 are to develop the EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Installation) activity for offshore oil & gas projects, and to increase the number of installations using OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) and SWAC (Sea Water Air-Conditioning).

We would like to thank our clients, partners and colleagues for this wonderful success.

BARDOT Group to work with Nexans on Hywind, world’s first floating wind farm

BARDOT Group to work with Nexans on Hywind, world’s first floating wind farmFrench company BARDOT Group has been awarded by Nexans the supply of buoyancy modules for the power cables of world’s first floating wind farm, Hywind in Scotland.

The 30 MW floating farm, located 30km off the coast of Peterhead, will be operated by Norwegian Oil and Gas company STATOIL and MASDAR. The project is expected to provide electricity to 20,000 homes, and is leading the way to future wind farm developments. Hywind will consist of five wind turbine generators connected through a cable network. The energy produced by the turbines will then be carried back to land by a single export cable. The cabling has been awarded to Nexans, who has chosen BARDOT Group to equip its dynamic cables with buoyancy modules.

The contract between Nexans and BARDOT Group consists in the procurement of several hundreds of buoyancy modules, each providing around 400kg of buoyancy and rated for 120m of water depth. The buoyancy modules integrate BARDOT’s in-house DeepFloat® syntactic foam technology, and will provide flotation assistance in the dynamic sections of the power cables. This dynamic section is of highly critical technical requirements, as submitted to rough and heavy movements of waves, currents and tides. The buoyancy modules are to be delivered onsite in May 2017.

BARDOT Group is a world leading company specialised in all SURF Functions based on Polymers, Syntactic or Steel technologies. French-based Group with regional offices in America, Asia, Europe and Middle East, BARDOT’s operations are focused on Oil & Gas and Renewables, for all subsea applications. Its main products are solutions for stabilization, crossing, mechanical protection, over bending and buoyancy as well as innovative Water Intake Riser for FPSO/FLNG. BARDOT Group is providing Integrated Energy Solutions based on OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) and SWAC (Sea Water Air-Conditioning) through its business unit BARDOT Ocean.
BARDOT’s experience and know-how in subsea engineering will be key assets to the project’s success and the development of offshore wind energy.


French companies BARDOT Group and DORIS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop their activities in the industry of Marine Thermic Energies. 

Under the MoU, partners will work together in developing innovative solutions for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) and Water Intake Systems for Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) applications. 

BARDOT group & Doris signed MoUBARDOT Group, through its business unit BARDOT Ocean, provides Integrated Energy Solutions based on OTEC technology. This green technology uses the ocean water to produce electricity, air-conditioning and fresh & drinking water. OTEC brings
electricity while associated technologies such as SWAC (Sea Water Air Conditioning) and SWRO (Sea Water Reverse Osmosis) can be used for air cooling and water purification.  

DORIS has been delivering for more than 50 years engineering services to the oil & gas and energy production industries. These engineering services range from feasibility studies to detailed engineering and include also procurement services and project management services. DORIS' expertise covers all offshore facilities: subsea systems/equipment, sealines, fixed or floating structures, mooring systems, marine operations, etc." 


French companies BARDOT Group and DORIS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop their activities in the industry of Marine Thermic Energies.
The two companies will be joining their expertise and experience to work on ongoing OTEC project in Maldives and other potential projects worldwide. Both CEOs Mr Guy Bardot and Mr Nicolas Parsloe are confident that this partnership will accelerate the progress made in OTEC developments, allowing the innovative solution to increase its notoriety and exploitation.
