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 opening an expression of interest call for its Offshore Wind and Subsea Infrastructure programme with funding available to invest 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.
NTCA is inviting proposals focused on infrastructure investment in:
· Ports and quays
· Innovation, demonstration and research assets which support the growth of the sector
· Infrastructure needs of the offshore wind and subsea supply chain
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.
Call Opens – 10th May 2021
Call Closes – 5th July 2021
The full Offshore and Subsea infrastructure programme can be found here, or in the links below.
We welcome informal contact, enquiries, and discussion from interested parties to help you assess the eligibility of your project or to answer any questions you may have.
If you are interested in submitting a project proposal or a Business Case Development Fund application, please send an email to Offshore@northoftyne-ca.gov.uk for the relevant form. Completed application forms should be sent to the same email address.
