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.
This competition is designed to connect project developers in offshore renewables with innovative supply chain companies in the offshore sector to develop commercial solutions for these corrosion and materials challenges. Solving of these challenges will reduce costs for developers and provide a multimillion-euro opportunity for innovative offshore supply companies across Europe.
