NeSSIE: North Sea Solutions for Innovation in Corrosion for Energy

NeSSIE (North Sea Solutions for Innovation in Corrosion for Energy) is a 24-month European project co-founded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund which aims to tackle the issue of corrosion on offshore energy facilities using renewable sources such as: wind, tidal and wave energy.

Led by Scottish Enterprise, the project has 8 partners from five European countries: Scottish Enterprise (Scotland, UK), the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK), Sirris (Belgium), Aster (Italy), Swedish Maritime Technology Forum (Sweden), Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster (Italy), Basque Energy Cluster (Spain), Asturian Energy Foundation (Spain). LE2C is responsible for a project focusing on communication and dissemination and takes an active role in all of the project’s activities and initiatives.

NeSSIE’s aim is to devise three pilot projects, or demo-cases, with the objective of identifying new materials and industrially advanced technologic solutions to be tested in the North Sea. These projects should be capable of tackling the problem of corrosion by increasing the competitiveness of offshore renewable energy sources through a containment of the Levelized Cost of Electricity.
