North Sea Solutions for Innovation in Corrosion for Energy

What is NeSSIE?

NeSSIE project will tap into the existing knowledge of anti-corrosion technology / novel materials solutions in the maritime sector supply chain to develop demonstration projects for offshore renewables in the North Sea. The corrosion solutions, when developed and commercialised, will provide global growth and job creation opportunities in remote regions in the EU.

Aiming to:

  • Develop and scope 3 offshore renewables demonstration projects relating to corrosion issues by drawing on existing maritime supply chain expertise
  • Accelerate the deployment and cost reduction of wave, tidal and offshore wind devices
  • Support the demonstration project developed to access public and private investment
  • Impact the North Sea Basin economy significantly
