Technology, Innovation & Green Growth for Offshore Renewables 2 (TIGGOR 2)

A supply chain programme designed to boost supply chain growth and productivity in the North of Tyne and wider North East England region’s offshore wind and subsea sectors.

The TIGGOR programme has been established to support the acceleration of businesses in the North of Tyne and wider North East England region. Funded primarily by the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) with commercial partners EDF and Equinor, the programme is designed to boost supply chain growth and productivity in the region’s burgeoning offshore wind and subsea sectors, as well as encourage market entrance of companies that currently do not operate in these industries.

The TIGGOR programme aims to maximise future commercial investment in the supply chain via a technology demonstration programme to de-risk future investment. Technology demonstration support will provide businesses with technology assessment, advice and funding in the following areas:

Smart O&M: Reliability, Optimisation, AI & Next Generation Sub-Components, Robotics, ROVs etc

Energy Systems: Hybrid smart energy systems etc

Advanced Manufacturing

Open Category: Cable Monitoring & Protection, Digital Twins and Data & others

Funding is available to companies located in the North of Tyne region (Northumberland, Newcastle and North-Tyneside) who are undertaking research and development projects in the above areas. Match funding of between 50-60% of total project costs (up to a maximum of £300k grant funding) is available and will be allocated through a competitive application process.

Applications are now open on the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult website, with projects running a maximum duration of 12-15 months (December 2024).
