New Offshore Wind Ports in the Nordics

Project 2020 - 2021 Closed

Today, offshore wind is highly recognized as key to speeding-up the green transition of countries. Nordic ports have the potential to take on an essential role in the offshore wind supply chain development, as they are key interfaces between land and sea for offshore wind.

This project aims to uncover specific opportunities for collaboration and strategic innovation between stakeholders at Nordic ports to foster long-term business opportunities to Nordic companies and ports in the offshore wind industry.

The process will be to facilitate a parallel, yet still interlinked, forum for strategic innovation of three Nordic ports in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The suggested and proven method will define, select, initiate and develop 6 concrete joint projects innovating Nordic ports and port spaces.

Background

To bring shipping in line with the Paris Climate Agreement, the maritime sector needs to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 % by 2050. This requires major advancements in technology as well as shifts in business models and in the ways of operating, including in the interface between land and sea. 

To support innovation and collaboration in this interface, Nordic Innovation formulated a NOK 8 million Nordic Innovation Mobility Mission with the aim of decarbonising Nordic ports, transport of people and goods – on and between sea and land. Five projects were awarded support in March 2020.

After the project period has ended, the most promising project will be offered additional funding of up to NOK 3 million in the form of a grant.
