PR(10)04: Authority approves aid granted by Innovation Norway for training purposes in Romania


In a decision adopted today, the Authority has approved aid granted by Innovation Norway for the purposes of training Romanian companies SC Promex SA and SC 24 January SA in a number of areas relating to subsea structures and equipment for oil and gas exploitation and production.

The aid is provided in the context of agreements between Norway, the European Union and Romania concerning a co-operation programme for economic growth and sustainable development in Romania.

The Authority considers that the aid is compatible with the EEA Agreement pursuant to the chapter in its State Aid Guidelines on state aid for training. This is the first time the Authority has applied its guidelines on training aid, which were adopted in November 2009.

The training will cover a number of areas, including welding techniques applicable to deep-sea metal structures, project management and health and safety issues, and will lead to recognised diplomas and certificates.
