Offshore Renewable Energy: emerging opportunities for the offshore industry
The workshop will present emerging opportunities in the marine renewable energy sector for the offshore industry. Particular focus will be devoted to the demo-cases on innovative corrosion solutions and new materials in wave, tidal and offshore wind energy technology developed within the European project NESSIE – North Sea Solutions for Innovation in Corrosion for Energy (co-funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund).
The NESSIE demo-cases involve international lead companies operating in the North Sea (European Marine Energy Centre, Scottish and Southern Energy, Simec Atlantis Energy) and supply chain companies to build business cases and open new market opportunities. Experiences of ENI in the Mediterranean Sea will be also showcased. The workshop is organized by ASTER in the framework of NESSIE project and the Vanguard pilot “Advanced Manufacturing for Energy Related Applications in Harsh Environment” (ADMA).
