Shipbuilding and marine equipment projects are capital intensive. However, the sector is not well suited to arrange all the necessary financing needed for large projects. SEA Finance monitors the developments of the financial market and provides expertise for exploring the possibility of establishing EU wide instruments to increase the volume of financing which theEuropean shipyards and maritime equipment manufacturers can take advantage of.
SEA Finance works together with the industry to achieve the following goals:
- Identify new financial instruments that a) fit the maritime industry, and b) remove entry barriers for institutional investors
- Demonstrate the high standards of the industry on Corporate and Social Responsibility and turn this into a unique selling point for doing business with European companies.
- Analyse how funds of institutions such as the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Regional Development can be harnessed for the benefit of European shipyards and maritime equipment manufacturers and unlock these funds.
