The North of Tyne area has a strong offshore and subsea sector, which is vital in supporting the growth of clean energy in the North East.
As part of a wider commitment to this industry the combined authority is now making £6.5m available to be invested in infrastructure that will strengthen existing capabilities and capacity.
The offshore wind and subsea infrastructure programme is focused on improvements that will support the growth of the sector as well as attracting new opportunities.
This money is available for investment in:
· Ports and quays
· Demonstration and research infrastructure
· Infrastructure to support the industries’ supply chain
We need to do what only we can do: to focus on inclusive economic growth, to create a better future for our people and to invest in our collective ambition
At this stage we are looking to develop a pipeline of prioritised proposals that can then be invited to submit a full business case application.
This call for proposals will close 02/11/2020.
