The NeSSIE project – Moving forward in the search of new offshore materials

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Although its relatively recent launch, the ADMA pilot based project NeSSIE is progressing at a steady pace. September marked the launch of the interregional collaboration on anticorrosion technology and novel subsea material solutions own website and steps are now being taken to further develop NeSSIEs’ three demonstration projects.

The NeSSIE project, that is being developed within the framework of the Vanguard Initiatives ADMA pilot, is swiftly moving forward. Although the transregional collaboration project was officially launched as late as may of 2017 it has already made significant progress.

As part of that progress, the NeSSIE website went live in September. On the website it is possible to follow the developments within the NeSSIE demonstration cases and events related to the project. Furthermore, the search for companies interested in being part of NeSSIE is underway and the University of Edinburgh is in the process of assessing which demonstration projects that is best suited for further development.    

NeSSIE stands for the North Sea Solutions for Innovation in Corrosion for Energy and is a transnational collaborative project involving eight partners representing five countries. Its mission is to use existing knowledge in the field of anti-corrosion technology and novel material solutions in the maritime sector supply chain to develop demonstration projects for offshore renewables in the North Sea.

There are currently three different demonstration projects under development with a total budget of approximately 860 000 euro. NeSSIE is co-funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

NeSSIE welcomes enterprises from any of the eight partner regions that are working within the field of corrosion and materials in subsea environments to get in touch with the project for discussions on potential collaborations. To contact the project, please visit its website.
