Multi-use platforms update
The ENTROPI project, launched to the industry at Seawork International 2018, is identifying areas of targeted innovation which can achieve significant cost reductions in multi-use platforms at sea.
Three priority use-cases have been defined as:
* anchoring and mooring solutions
* security and surveillance applications
* a complete platform concept supporting both renewable energy devices and aquaculture facilities
Road-maps for each use-case have been produced to quickly and easily illustrate the key actions, benefits and milestones for each scenario.
An extensive range of companies with the competence to contribute towards the deployment of all three scenarios have been identified. Amongst these, potential ‘pillar companies’ have been identified, as well as a number of smaller, innovative firms. Relevant research centres and public funding programmes have also been highlighted, to create a possible vehicle for public and private investment. Currently the ENTROPI project partners are outlining investment cases for the three scenarios which will show how funding can best be coordinated making the best use of existing financial instruments a both European and national/regional levels.
Leaders of the ENTROPI project, Marine South East, recently presented the project at ELBE, (European Leadership in Blue Energy), ‘Getting to Market in Blue Energy Seminar’ in Flanders, Belgium.
