FORSEA invites O&G tech developers to transition to renewables

The FORESEA (Funding Ocean Energy through Strategic European Action) program has launched its 4th call for proposals on October 11 at the Offshore Energy 2017 conference.

The call for proposals, open until June 29, 2018, aims to help developers of offshore technologies transition into the renewable energy space by developing new applications for their products.

Successful applicants will receive free access to a network of test centers: EMEC in the UK, DMEC in the Netherlands, SEM REV in France, and SmartBay in Ireland.

FORESEA extended the 4th call for proposals to include technology developers in other offshore sectors, such as the oil & gas, subsea and shipping industries which have renewable energy applications.

Nicolas Wallet, EU programme manager at EMEC, said: “With this call, we want to provide a bridge to the renewable energy market for technology developers from other sectors.

“The market for offshore renewables 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 renewables 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.”
