Development programme aims to support marine manufacturing

Identifying companies for technology enhancement intervention

SOUTH AFRICA: The Aerospace Industry Support Initiative (AISI) is calling for interested companies to respond to their call for an Expression of Interest (EoI) that will help them identify manufacturing marine integrators or sub-system suppliers iand SMMEs to participate in the AISI Marine Manufacturing, Maintenance and Repairs and Associated Services Development programme for technology intervention. 

The Aerospace Industry Support Initiative (AISI) is an initiative of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic), hosted under Industry Connect at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). 

The AISI aims to identify recipients that could benefit from support towards technology enhancement within the marine industry. More specifically support will be provided to manufacturers requiring technology enhancements (which could include testing or validation of new technology, or technology transfer to a beneficiary) to assist suppliers, enter new markets or enhance existing market positions in the marine industry. Support provided to a successful company has the specific aim to improve industry competitiveness and increase localisation of components manufactured within the marine manufacturing industry of South Africa.

Submissions must be made by 16 November and there is an optional briefing session being hosted virtually on 9 November. 

This EoI is specifically for the Marine Manufacturing Industry. Qualifying companies are encouraged to apply for support towards Marine Technology Enhancement. This call seeks to identify project(s) that requires support, not more than R 750 000, aimed at specifically increasing localisation of component manufacture within the marine manufacturing industry in South Africa. Co-funding is required by both SMMEs (10 percent) and non-SMMEs (25 percent). 

Funding can be used for internal or external project running costs, project manpower, training, development, engineering support and/or similar costs. However, funding may not be used for capital expenditure purchases such as equipment and software. In addition, the AISI does not support construction, rnovation, or upgrade of buildings.
