The SÍ100 project, approved by NEXTGENERATIONEU funds in a call for proposals with high participation

1 March 2022

The project “Novel substructure and installation process in deep waters to reduce the cost of offshore wind energy”, SÍ100, has been selected among more than a hundred proposals in the CDTI Missions 2021 call for proposals to be funded by the European Union-NextGenerationEU, through the Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The main objective of the SÍ100 project is the research and development of new offshore structures for the installation of high power wind turbines (up to 20MW) at great depths (between 60 and 100m), which will reduce the cost of current energy and facilitate the opening of the wind energy market at depths greater than 50 metres.

This project represents a major innovation at world level and for its development INGECID will collaborate with the companies ISATI, TETRACE and NABRAWIND as well as the University of Cantabria, IHCantabria and the CIDAUT Foundation.
