SINTEF Energy Research operates laboratories for high voltage, high power and climatic testing. Customers are manufacturers, suppliers and users of electric power equipment.
The main activity of the towing tanks is related to investigation of hydrodynamic performance of ships. This includes resistance, propulsion, seakeeping in head and following seas, and directional stability tests with free running models. The tanks are equipped with two carriages: One for towing up to 10 m/s for traditional calm water tests and a second carriage for seakeeping tests and other tests performed with fixed or free-running models.

Planning the world’s longest floating bridge
The floating bridge spanning Bjørna Fjord is unique in a global context, and so advanced in terms of its technology that even the researchers working on the project have really been put to the test.
The world's first ship tunnel tested under harsh weather conditions
The sea around Stad is one of the most exposed and dangerous areas along the Norwegian coastline. Heavy waves come from different directions at the same time, creating critical situations. In order to ease ship traffic and increase safety, the Norwegian Coastal Administration intends to build a ship tunnel, the first of its kind in the world.
