Develop Innovative Offshore Logistic
DIOL concretely responds to the Directive 2018/2001 by addressing THE ESBJERG DECLARATION on The North Sea as a Green Power Plant of Europe (NS GPPoE) signed by the Prime Ministers of Denmark, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands at the North Sea Summit in Esbjerg on 18/05/2022. DIOL helps set in motion the logistics required to develop the foreseen offshore.
Renewable Energy (RE) system connecting the 4 Countries and France through concrete measures in concerned ports and airports.
In order to construct and maintain the expected multiple interlinked offshore RE projects and hubs, it is URGENT as well as crucial to support the core infrastructure providers that are most affected by the objective of delivering at least 65GW offshore wind power by 2030 & 150GW by 2050 and installing a 20GW production capacity of green hydrogen by 2030.
To speed up such expansion process via a forward-looking and resilient logistic chain, DIOL stimulates the innovation capacity under the framework of a TRANSNATIONAL COORDINATED EFFORT. The collaboration focuses on testing sustainable and efficient logistics (offshore transfer & service) solutions sustaining the preparation and O&M of the GPPoE and planned artificial energy islands, i.e.:
- DK: Ørsted/ATP North Sea Energy Island - 3GW-10GW
- BE: Elia Princess Elisabeth Island - 3.5GW
- NL: IJmuiden Ver (IJVER) energy island - 4GW
- DE: CIP-AIM Energy Island - 10GW wind+H2
prioritises green adaptation of logistics hubs´ facilities, equipment and data management systems to accommodate new generation offshore vessels/structures; defines technical/legal/standard/business requisites to ensure that ports/airports´ integrated upgrade accelerates the setting up of the GPPoE; enables SECURITY of RE supply & infrastructure (e.g. via smart drones/fences/robots/AI). 8 multi-deliverable pilot actions, 11 solutions and 3 Roadmaps will be developed allowing about 195 organisations to strengthen their readiness for green energy transition in the NS basin.
