The S3 interregional partnership in MRE aims to pool regional resources and expertise in order to create new business opportunities and increased growth for the MRE sector.
With a focus on identifying and solving the key industrial challenges of the sector, in areas such as:
- manufacturing of large components;
- power transfer and conversion;
- corrosion in water;
- sensing, instrumentation and monitoring;
- O&M optimisation;
- testing and demonstration in real environments.
The partnership works in close cooperation with the Vanguard Initiative Pilot for Advanced Manufacturing in Energy related applications for Harsh Environments (VI ADMA Energy Pilot – led by Scotland and the Basque Country). 15 other regions take part in the partnership.
Based on technological and industrial expertise in the partner regions, and guided by the VI ADMA Energy Pilot experience, the partnership aims at facilitating European companies’ participation in pan-EU supply and value chains to solve these challenges, with a view to reducing the relatively higher costs of energy generation facing the MRE sector than other methods of green electricity generation.
