SAM Self Adapting Model-based system for Process Autonomy
The primary objective of SAM is to optimize demanding industrial processes by developing advanced physical models and machine learning algorithms, and integrating new online sensors where real time data is currently limited or lacking.
HyLINE - Safe Pipelines for Hydrogen Transport
Hydrogen, the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, may, as an energy carrier hold the key to the inevitable and needed transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Together with Norway's important role as a major energy provider in Europe comes the obligation to be a main player in this transition.
AEMON - Novel Failure Monitoring System for Marine Applications by including Acoustic Emission
Gear systems are critical in maritime vessels and wind turbines, and damage of components in these systems may lead to catastrophic and costly failure. Today, gears and bearings are often monitored by frequent inspections and manual condition monitoring. However, closed gears are not easily inspected, and in autonomous and remote-controlled vessels and subsea installations, remote condition monitoring is the only option over long periods of time.
DIY4U – Design & production of personalised powdered & liquid FMCG
DIY4U focuses on digitalizing and transforming European industries and services involved in the formulation, production and supply of particulate and liquid based Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), enhancing the innovation capacity and competitiveness through decentralized customer-centric production approaches, by promoting the adoption of Open Innovation (OI) digital platform for collaborative production engineering and Fablabs (digitally enabled small-scale manufacturing machines/factories).
The Norwegian industry is among the cleanest in the world and great efforts are made to reduce emissions even further. To this end, many different kinds of challenges must be overcome, and one often overlooked difficulty lies in measurements. The industry relies on measurement data in their endeavor to reduce emissions but when uncertainties are high, the results offer no guidance. The PAHssion project focus on measurements of one group of pollutants called "PAH", Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The objective is to develop more reliable PAH measurement methods and thereby improve emission control and reporting. This will be achieved by improved analytical performance and reduced uncertainty of measurements.
COGNITWIN - Cognitive plants through proactive self-learning hybrid digital twins
COGNITWIN will set a new standard for the design, development and operation of the European process industry by introducing a platform for virtual component-based architecture that integrates IoT, Big data, AI, smart sensors, machine learning and communication technologies, all connected to a novel paradigm of self-learning hybrid models with proactive cognitive capabilities.
Hydrate Management - New understanding of hydrate phenomena in oil systems to enable safe operation within the hydrate zone
For the O&G industry, risk-based hydrate management can be a viable strategy for significantly widening the operational window. The traditional approach has been to avoid entering the hydrate region (high pressure and low temperature) altogether by temperature control (insulation and heating), chemicals (methanol and glycols) and pressure control. Although ensuring safe operations these remedies are costly for longer and colder transport conditions and not necessarily environmentally sound. This project will help meet demands of marginal field developments by advancing the new fundamental knowledge of gas hydrate properties and develop methods for risk assessment, minimize environmental impact and cost-effective hydrate management.
Alpakka - Circular Aluminium Packaging in Norway
Aluminium is extensively used in food packaging because it provides a unique durability. Longer durability leads to less food wastage. The challenge is to make sure that the aluminium packaging is reclaimed and goes back into the circuit. The main objective of the Alpakka project is to establish a Norwegian flagship demonstrator for Circular Economy in practice, which will increase the aluminium packaging circularity in Norway byvalue-chain cooperation between collectors, food producers/packaging designers and aluminiumrecyclers as well as through engaging the consumers.
