ESA Space Solutions has issued a new Invitation to Tender
The Decommissioning of Energy Assets is a relevant issue worldwide. ESA Space Solutions has issued a new Invitation to Tender to assess the technical feasibility and commercial viability of satellite-based services in support of Decommissioning of Energy Assets.
Two main types of assets are targeted by ESA through this funding opportunity: offshore oil & gas platforms and wind farms.
Key focus area are:
- Monitoring of environmental impact
- Logistics and end-to-end business support services
- Safety of workers on-board and on-shore
- Support to automation of decommissioning activities
The activities will be 100% funded up to €200K euro per activity.
Any resulting studies are also intended to establish the roadmap for service implementation through follow-on Demonstration Projects. This opportunity will close on 1 July 2020. Please see here for more information: business.esa.int/funding/invitation-to-tender/decommissioning-energy-assets
