OffshoreVäst is a cooperation project which started in 2013 and can be seen as a platform for interaction and innovation. We bring together some of Sweden’s best in the offshore sector with the goal of developing together. By drawing upon the strong industry of Sweden, we are developing an internationally recognized offshore industry in the Swedish west coast area.
OffshoreVäst’s operative activities are performed within the framework of five working areas referred to as work packages or “wp”. The first four work packages deals with technology development, while the fifth (Offshore Academy) brings together the industry and research institutes. The idea behind the four technology-centered work packages is to create several technology-associated development projects that vary in both aim and scope.
All of our work packages focus on different areas of the offshore sector, mainly because of the difference in the current stages of commercialization, but also because the needs differ depending on the offshore segment. Despite this fact, our goal is to create collaboration between the different WPs and develop the industry by mixing different fields of expertise and experiences.
WP1 aims to make the suppliers in west Sweden and the surrounding areas a firsthand choice, primarily for the Norwegian and British oil and gas industry
WP2 Sea-based Energy Production - Cost efficiency for competitiveness on a global market. The challenge faced by WP2 is to exploit the sustainable power sources of wind and wave energy, while coping with the enormous forces that the installations are exposed to in the offshore environment.
WP3 aims to promote and develop the Swedish offshore wind power industry while supporting innovations as well as collaborations in the field of offshore wind.
WP4 aims to develop the markets of bioenergy while providing a fossil free energy source which can be used for many years to come.
WP5 Offshore Academy - Under the leadership of Chalmers University of Technology, WP5 brings together Swedish academic and industrial expertise and facilities. The goal is to join the academic and industrial fields in a variety of collaborations.
