Jan 30th - Feb. 1st, 2018. NeSSIE partners gathered in Edinburgh (Scotland) for the third Steering Committee meeting where they launched the first two Research Reports.
The two Reports commissioned by the NeSSIE Project, of which LE2C is a partner, were published on Thursday 1st of February 2018. They investigate the economic potential of anti-corrosion solutions and the development of new materials in the offshore renewable market.
The study found that tackling corrosion problems and developing new materials in the renewable energy field from wave, tidal and wind power in offshore Europe could save up to €84,000 million for developers and create opportunities for the production chain up to to €82,000 million euros by 2050.
Both Reports are available online on the official website www.nessieproject.com
- State of the Art Study on Materials and Solutions against Corrosion in Offshore Structures: a mapping of research and current standards regarding solutions and materials to deal with corrosion in the offshore sector.
- Assessment of Economic Opportunity: an assessment of market opportunities related to anti-corrosion solutions and new materials in the sector projected in 2050. With the explanation of a model that calculates the savings deriving from the adoption of solutions and strategies to tackle corrosion in the renewables sector and further opportunities for the production chain.
During 2018, the NeSSIE project will move into the next stage of developing a Road Map, an investment plan and running the Demonstration Project Selection process.
