Getting started

Do you want to apply industrial electrification in your organization?

Explore the strategic opportunities and realization of projects aimed at process and chain integration, in collaboration with relevant chain partners. Participate in joint studies and projects that shape the future of this cluster and your customers, helping to implement the necessary technology.

Intended partners of the Fieldlab are organizations that have an interest in making the process industry more sustainable. These could be, for example:

  • End users who want to (partially) electrify their processes,
  • Energy companies that want to test new services,
  • Technology companies that want to demonstrate their innovation in practice or otherwise.

As a partner you offer technical, substantive, administrative and/or financial support.

Do you provide technology?

We are happy to help you! As a first step, we will look at how we want to work together during an intake. A tailor-made step-by-step plan is made, which makes it clear which steps you need to achieve implementation, and how the Fieldlab can help. We will then jointly determine which of the services below best suits your needs.

  • Supervision research
    We supervise your desired research and prepare a report. Examples of studies are: a market study, business case analysis, competition analysis, location research, economic or technical feasibility, infrastructure study and lifecycle analysis. The Fieldlab can also support with a technical substantive contribution.
  • Regulatory advice
    We have a direct link with the Accelerator House Energy Transition Port and Industrial Complex (HIC), which helps to remove barriers in the field of regulation, finance and permits. The Acceleration House HIC is a unique partnership between the Port of Rotterdam Authority, the companies in the port and industrial complex (represented via Deltalinqs), the Municipality of Rotterdam, InnovationQuarter, the environmental department DCMR, the Province of South Holland, RVO and the Ministries of Economic Affairs & Climate and of Infrastructure & Water Management.
  • Financing advice
    We are happy to support you with a financing scan. In addition, the Fieldlab can provide support in writing a subsidy application for a fee.

Thanks to our broad network, we can match the technology from your organization with technology users. We do this, among other things, on the basis of our technology database. We help to establish initial contacts between parties and can supervise the initial discussions. If this leads to cooperation, we can also support you in drawing up an NDA.

All partners from the Fieldlab jointly use their own network/supporters for this process. The matchmaking can relate to complementary technology, end users, knowledge institutions, system integrators and training institutes.

.

We help with the preparation of a project plan, with work packages for engineering, testing and evaluation and reporting. From the Fieldlab we deliver and supervise the infrastructure of the pilot test. We provide technical support on site aimed at integration with P2X line. Through our independent partners we can ensure the correct evaluation. Interested parties can be invited to a demonstration day from our broad network. The component has TRL level 7 upon completion.

We help organize a demonstration project at an end user, with the aim of bringing the TRL-level to 8.

Are you looking for an electrification solution?

We are happy to help you! The first step will be an introduction to see if we are a good match. A tailor-made step-by-step plan is also made, which makes it clear which steps you need to take to achieve implementation and how FLIE can help with this. We will then jointly determine which of the services below best suits your needs.

  • Reconnaissance
    We provide your company with research and advice on which technology is most suitable. The current situation is extensively mapped out as well as possible future scenarios. This scenario takes into account energy prices, EU ETS, value chain analysis, energy mix, technology developments, changes within companies and many other aspects.
  • Selection
    In a technical study we look at the optimal use of the most promising technologies. This involves looking at how the technology can be integrated into the current installation, at what scale it should be applied and what properties the technology should meet. The results can be used to find a technology provider.
  • Specification
    We help you make a business case, with which the decision can be made to proceed with the implementation of the new solution. This includes the expected costs (CAPEX, OPEX, energy) and revenues/savings (EU ETS, CO2 tax, energy, product value increase,…) in comparison with a base case.

We support you in finding possible sources of financing, including grants. We are also happy to help you apply for this.

  • Overview
    When it is clear what kind of technology is needed, we map out the possible suppliers for you. An overview of possible suppliers will be provided, in which it will also be made clear to what extent this technology meets the need.
  • Selection
    We compare the technologies of the different providers and will advise you on the most suitable option. This includes costs, but also integration possibilities in the current processes, technology performance, degree of saving/sustainability, current state of technology and other aspects.
  • De-risking Strategy
    Not every technology is ready to be applied in practice. Together with the technology supplier, we draw up an action plan that will allow the technology to be put into practice.
  • Demonstration
    An on-site demonstration can be used as part of the validation of a technology. Together we make a plan for this and implement it.
