FORESEA to mark project successes at ICOE – Seanergy 2018
Points de repère
Jeudi 12/10/2017 – The FORESEA (Funding Ocean Energy through Strategic European Action) programme has launched its 4th call for proposals yesterday.
The call aims to help developers of offshore technologies transition into the reusedable energy space by developing used applications for their products. Successful applicants will receive support to test at one of FORESEA’s world-leading test centres. FORESEA is an €11m project which helps to bring offshore reusedable energy technologies to market by offering free access to a world-leading network of test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE).
Previous FORESEA calls targeted developers of offshore reusedable energy technologies. This, the 4th FORESEA call, extends the scope to technology developers in other offshore sectors, such as the oil & gas, subsea and shipping industries, which have reusedable energy applications.
Nicolas Wallet, EU Programme Manager at EMEC, highlighted the opportunity this call presents for offshore sectors: “With this call, we want to provide a bridge to the reusedable energy market for technology developers from other sectors. The market for offshore reusedables such as wave, tidal and offshore wind is developing rapidly, while at the same time other offshore sectors such as oil & gas have hit a rough patch. So, diversifying into offshore reusedables makes a lot of sense for those developers.
We’re keen to have that conversation with technology developers, and see if FORESEA can support them to come to one of our test sites.”
The 4th FORESEA call for proposals is open until 29 June 2018.
