SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIVE SHIPBUILDING SUBSIDY – IN BRIEF

The Dutch Subsidy for Sustainable Innovative Shipbuilding (SDS) focuses on enabling the introduction of innovative, experimental technologies into the market for the building of new ships and the conversion of older ships that contribute to sustainable development in terms of reducing noise or emissions, alternative fuels, a sustainable life cycle. Are you building or converting an inland or sea-going vessel? Then make use of the SDS subsidy.

Who is it for?

Shipyards

What is it for?

Shipbuilding innovation projects that are aimed at:

  • the development and design of a new class of ship or a new class of floating and moving offshore constructions
  • the development of a new component of a ship or a floating and moving offshore construction

Subsidy amount maximum €1.25 million per project

The subsidy can be up to 25% of the eligible costs and a maximum of €1.25 million. The total subsidy budget is €2.3 million.

Themes within SDS

  • emission reduction
  • alternative fuels
  • noise reduction
  • sustainable life cycle
Criteria

Conditions

  • The ship to be (re-)built is a seagoing or inland navigation ship with a gross weight of at least 100 tonnes, intended for the transport of passengers or goods or for the performance of a special service.
  • Tugboats must have a minimum power of 365 kW.
  • Fishing vessels are not eligible.
  • The applicant for the subsidy – the shipyard – may not conclude a contract with the client for the (re)building of a ship or floating offshore construction before applying for the subsidy. The parties may, however, sign a letter of intent.

Assessment criteria

The SDS is awarded through a tender procedure, so that the best projects receive a subsidy. The RVO (the Netherlands Government Service for Entrepreneurship) assesses and ranks applications on the basis of the following criteria:

  • innovative content of the shipbuilding project
  • contribution of the shipbuilding innovation project to making shipping more sustainable
  • economic potential and application possibilities (for the Dutch economy)

  • general quality of the application

PURPOSE OF THE SUBSIDY

The purpose of the SDS is to contribute to the stimulation of innovative ways to achieve sustainability in shipbuilding. To this end it supports shipbuilding innovation projects aimed at experimental development in the (re)building of a ship or floating offshore construction.

Type of projects

Shipbuilding innovation projects that focus on:

  • the development and design of a new class of ship or a new class of floating and moving offshore construction
  • the development of a new part of a ship or floating and moving offshore construction
