Clean Maritime Demonstration (CMDC) Competitions

Closing Date: 09/11/2022

UK registered businesses and partner organisations can apply for funding to support innovative clean maritime technologies.

This programme is administered by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK (IUK). The funding is from The Department for Transport (DfT).

The Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC) Round 3 is part of a suite of interventions to be launched by the UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions (UK SHORE).

The aim of this competition is to fund real world demonstrations of clean maritime technologies in an operational setting. Proposals must develop, test and deploy novel clean maritime technologies focused on both on-vessel technologies and related shoreside infrastructure including at ports and harbours.

This competition is split into two strands:

  • Strand 1: Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 3 – Vessel or Infrastructure demonstrations
  • Strand 2: Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 3 –Vessel and Infrastructure combined demonstrations

Demonstration projects must develop, test and deploy novel clean maritime technologies focused on on-vessel technologies or shoreside or offshore infrastructure including at ports, harbours and wind farms.

Demonstrations must include the technology and vessel being used in a representative real world operational environment for a period of at least four weeks.
