Applied research, technology and innovation
Our 2000 employees offer expertise in:
A giant subsea snake robot
It most resembles a giant snake undulating through the water. But this snake-like robot can work in the vast ocean depths. And perhaps one of its relatives will be able to travel to outer space.
Reveals the real greenhouse gas footprints of reservoirs
When hydropower reservoirs traps organic matter, it leads to higher local greenhouse gas emissions. But the emissions are not increased but displaced. A new tool calculates the real greenhouse gas footprints of reservoirs.

SINTEF is looking for the next generation of problem solvers. If you want to be involved in creating solutions for the next generation, SINTEF needs you. For more than 60 years our research has developed solutions and innovations both for society and our clients all over the world. As a result, SINTEF has become a world-leading research institute. As one of our valued employees you will enjoy trust, challenging assignments and ample opportunity for professional and personal development. Welcome to SINTEF – Technology for a better society.
SINTEF offers world-leading laboratories within a broad spectre of technology areas. Our advanced laboratories range from development of microelectronics and studies at a nano-level, to one of the world's largest ocean basin laboratories.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
The laboratory's main activity is flow assurance related research for the petroleum industry. It has contributed significantly to the development of multiphase flow simulators, and this is still an ongoing activity. Development of hydrate cold flow technology and sand transport studies are currently also main topics.
HVDC Inertia provission
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
NorEUnergy - Establishment of Norwegian-EU networks in the bioenergy field
NorEUnergy II will focus on increasing the mobilization and participation of Norwegian actors in the field of bioenergy, as one of the prioritized scientific areas in the new integrated SET-Plan.
ProTrafo - Next Generation Protection of Transformers
The transformer is one of the key components in any electric power system. Its purpose is to convert between different voltage levels, thereby enabling transmission of power over long distances, and the distribution of power to the end customer. The failure of a transformer leads to substantial costs for the owner and often loss of power as well.
