News from #sintefenergy

SINTEF energy lab

SINTEF Energy Research invests 165 million in a new electricity laboratory in Blaklia outside Trondheim. The new lab strengthens an area where SINTEF and NTNU are international leaders.

The new laboratory is being built close by Statnett substation on Blakli. This is an ideal location for such a laboratory.

The building will consist of seven separate laboratories, each geared toward their particular application area. The largest and most prominent being a new high voltage laboratory, which is dimensioned for system voltages up to 420 kV.

Our new laboratory at Blaklia.

Major projects

The Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) comprised of selected centres which conduct research of high international calibre in order to solve challenges within the field. The purpose of these centres is to contribute to a better basis for decisions in the interface between climate, energy and industry. The aim is to increase the platform of knowledge for national and international energy policy.

SINTEF Energy is involved in six of the eleven national centres, and has the overall project management responsibility of four of the centres.
