Symbicon’s partner Galion Media has installed Icon55 OD HB WMU unit to the pier entrance of the daily ferry service between Le Brusc and the Les Embiez island.
In 1958, the island was bought by the famous French industrialist and environmentalist Paul Ricard (1909-1997). The Institut océanographique Paul Ricard, created in 1966, demonstrates and works towards respect for the environment today more than ever, as it was intended by its founder.
The Les Embiez island has a strict environmental policy and its port was the first in Var, a French department, to be awarded ISO 14001 certification. The island also has Blue Flag beaches, which meet FEE’s standards of environmental management, and the island’s surface is protected under Natura 2000.
