Spin-off project effort related to offshore wind

With NORCE Research as the consortium leader a consortium of 14 partners have submitted a proposal to “Grønn plattform 2022”, a program jointly funded by the Research Council of Norway, Innovation Norway and SIVA.

Seven of the partners in SFI Offshore Mechatronics is involved in this new initiative called Building Industry for Offshore Wind Technology (BUIOWT).

Results and knowledge generated from the SFI Offshore Mechatronics is to a large extent directly applicable and will play in important role in the scale-up of the offshore wind industry.

If granted the project will start early 2023 with a budget of 116MNOK and with a project period of three years. GCE Node has published a news story related the the application.
