New iXblue vessel for MRE research

French inertial navigation specialist iXblue commissioned and began operating its new hydrographic research vessel in June 2016. The FeliX is a composite catamaran designed, built and outfitted by iXblue companies. Although the design caters for hydrographic surveying and oceanographic and biological research, most missions to date have focused on R&D for marine renewable energy programmes.
