The NESSIE project consortium launches the first stage of the competition to implement projects demonstrating anti-corrosion solutions in the North Sea
The competition is designed to connect project developers in offshore renewables with innovative supply chain companies in the offshore sector across Europe. Specifically, the competition is looking to develop commercial solutions for corrosion and materials challenges in offshore renewables through demonstration projects in the North Sea.
Stage 1 of the competition (which opened on June 6th, 2018 and will close on August 7th, 2018) will select three leading companies that are looking to deploy demonstration projects related to corrosion in the North Sea. The successful companies from stage 1 will be then supported to develop calls in stage 2 that will bring forward innovative solutions to these challenges from the supply chain across Europe before finally being supported by the project partners to put together business cases for the projects and identity potential funding packages to deliver the projects.
The main goal of the NeSSIE project, which is co-financed by the EMFF, is to develop 3 investable demonstration projects based on innovative technologies to test, deploy and scale up new industry, service applications and solutions in anti-corrosion technology and new materials in wave, tidal and offshore wind energy sectors.
The NESSIE project is coordinated by Scottish Enterprise (Scotland). It includes the participation of the regions of Asturias, Flanders (Belgium), Emilia-Romagna (Italy), Basque Country, Skåne (Sweden) and Lombardy (Italy), represented by the Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster (responsible partner for the Communication WP). All regions are member of the Vanguard Initiative (ADMA Pilot).
Please spread the word to your member companies active in the Offshore Renewable Energy sector.
