The port of Flamanville, in the northern part of the commune, is known as Diélette. During the summer a high-speed passenger ferry is operated from there to Alderney and Guernsey by Manche Iles Express.

Flamanville has been selected for the installation of the first French EPR reactor, which will be Flamanville's third reactor, near the two existing ones. Whether or not Flamanville 3, EPR, actually becomes operational is political, as many prominent politicians are opposed to it.
There are also plans for later fourth reactor.
