APPLICATION ROUNDS

The 2022 SSEB application round runs from 9 May to 30 December. Please note: there is no budget left for almost all parts of the scheme, so applications will no longer be considered.

This excludes one specific part of the scheme, namely the tender for experimental developments (see below under SSEB Innovation). This runs from 31 May to 5:00 pm on 31 August. It is possible to submit an application for this up until the deadline.

SSEB IN BRIEF

The goal of the Clean and Emission-free Construction Equipment (Subsidieregeling Schoon en Emissieloos Bouwmaterieel, SSEB) grant scheme is the reduction of nitrogen emissions by construction equipment (construction machinery, auxiliary equipment, construction vehicles and seagoing construction vessels) in order to contribute to the reduction of nitrogen emissions in the construction industry. There are three components to this Dutch scheme:

  • SSEB Purchase – grant for the purchase of emission-free (zero-emission) construction machinery: construction equipment, auxiliary equipment and construction vehicles
  • SSEB Retrofit – grant for the conversion (low emission/zero emission) of construction equipment and seagoing construction vessels
  • SSEB Innovation – a grant for the continued development of emission-free technologies (including solutions for on-site charging), so that companies can put them into practice during the course of the scheme.

 For whom?

  • Construction enterprises that have their own construction equipment
  • Enterprises that rent out construction equipment
  • Partnerships between the enterprises specified above (specifically for SSEB Innovation)
  • Partnerships between the enterprises specified above and a non-government organisation or a publicly funded research organisation (specifically for SSEB Innovation).

 For what?

  • Purchase of emission-free (zero-emission) construction machinery
  • Conversion of existing construction equipment/seagoing construction vessels
  • Improvement of emission-free (zero-emission) construction machinery and the associated charging infrastructure

    GRANT BUDGET AND AMOUNTS

    SSEB Retrofit:

    • The total SSEB Purchase grant budget in 2022 is 25.2 million euros.
    • The grant for each new zero-emission construction machine is up to 40% (50% for SMEs) of the additional cost compared to an internal combustion engine construction machine, up to a maximum of 300,000 euros per construction machine.

    SSEB Retrofit:

    • The total SSEB Retrofit grant budget in 2022 is 7 million euros.
    • The grant for each conversion of a construction machine or seagoing construction vessel is up to 40% (50% for SMEs) of the net investment cost per conversion, up to a maximum of 300,000 euros per conversion.

    SSEB Innovation:

    • The total SSEB Innovation grant budget in 2022 is 10 million euros. This budget is broken down as follows:
      • 9 million euros for experimental developments (technical developments and practical experience projects, assessment in accordance with tender system);
      • 1 million euros for feasibility studies (processed in order in which they are received).
    • The grant amounts to a maximum of 1 million euros per experimental development and 50,000 euros per feasibility study.

    TERMS OF ELIGIBILITY

    There are specific terms of eligibility and requirements associated with each of the components of this grant scheme. These include terms relating to the enterprise, the purchase or other agreement and the equipment concerned, as well as requirements with respect to ownership and use. The experts at EGEN can give you more information about this.

    APPLYING FOR AN SSEB GRANT

    Would you like to purchase zero-emission construction machinery or convert your existing construction machines/seagoing construction vessels? Perhaps you have an innovative idea for improving zero-emission construction machines and the associated charging infrastructure. If so, then you can make use of the SSEB. Feel free to contact the experts at EGEN, who will be happy to help you. You can call us on +31 (0)88 838 13 81 or send us an e-mail.

The best thing about this sector is that it is connected to the energy transition, because ships, planes and trucks are moving towards other/cleaner fuels.
