Clean Maritime Call Stage One Outcome Announced!
Opened in 29th July 2019 and closed on 25th October 2019, the first stage of the Clean Maritime Call has been significantly oversubscribed. We are very pleased to see the enthusiasm of the maritime community for this funding call. Fifty-five (55) Expression of Interests (EoIs) were received with a total project value of £37M and funding request of £8.7M. The standard of the EoI applications were high, and it was difficult to decide between the numerous excellent projects.
Key topics of the EoIs were around Clean Fuels (Ammonia, Biomass, Hydrogen) for large marine engines, Electric Propulsion, Vessel Efficiency (antifouling, autonomy, design, operations, etc.) and Wind Power. After being assessed by a team of independent reviewers from industry, academia, and government, twenty-five (25) EoIs with a total project value of £12M and funding request of over £4M, were selected to advance to the second stage and invited to submit full proposals. We wish the best of luck to all who submitted bids.
