Ocean space Subsea
Subsea is the next frontier, and an important research area for SINTEF
At SINTEF we have a strong research teams on subsea power and power electronics, which provide customers with more secure, robust and efficient subsea solutions. We have laboratories, equipment and expertise to test and develop materials and components for demanding environments, and in deep water and high and low temperatures.
SINTEF Energy Research operates laboratories for high voltage, high power and climatic testing. Customers are manufacturers, suppliers and users of electric power equipment.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
FerroCool is an experimental project that will investigate ferrofluid heat transfer. It is an early step towards realizing a novel, efficient and reliable cooling concept that uses magnetic nanofluids.
Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure
Aquaculture industry needs innovative thinking
Industry, biologists and engineers will need to cooperate more closely if Norway is to maintain its position as a leading marine nation.
More efficient marine operations
The Research Council of Norway has awarded MARINTEK NOK 5.5 million to participate in a research project that aims to develop decision-making simulation software for marine lifting operations.
Taking care of elderly wells
Thousands of old offshore oil wells will have to be plugged to prevent them leaking. The process may cost several hundred million Norwegian kroner, and you and I will have to find most of the money. Researchers are now proposing a solution that may offer some relief for what is a major headache for the Norwegian state.
