TheNESSIE project consortium has launched the first stage of the competitionto implement projects demonstrating anti-corrosion solutions in the NorthSea.
Jan Reid, team leader in the energy and clean technologies team withinScottish Enterprise and SRO for NeSSIE, said: “NeSSIE is an EU-fundedproject that aims to identify three large-scale investable demonstrationprojects and investment sources in the field of corrosion and new materialsin the North Sea Basin. This competition is designed to connect leadingproject developers in offshore renewables with innovative supply chaincompanies in the offshore sector to develop commercial solutions for corrosionand materials challenges. The project is focused on identifying the companiesin the field who can drive market leading solutions that will attract financeand result in the demonstration projects being deployed.”
The competition is looking to develop commercial solutions for corrosionand materials challenges in offshore renewables through demonstration projectsin the North Sea.
Stage 1 of the competition, which started on the 6th of June and finisheson the 7th of August, will select three leading companies that are lookingto deploy demonstration projects related to corrosion in the North Sea.
The successful companies from stage 1 will be then supported to developcalls in stage 2 that will bring forward innovative solutions to thesechallenges from the supply chain across Europe before finally being supportedby the project partners to put together business cases for the projectsand identity potential funding packages to deliver the projects.
The EMFF co-financed NeSSIE project´s goal is to develop three investabledemonstration projects to test anti-corrosion technology in the wave, tidal,and offshore wind energy sectors.
