Marine Structures Laboratory
The main activities in the laboratory for marine structures are the testing of structures, structural components and materials. Typical problems involve fatigue testing, ultimate strength and collapse testing. Experimental work is often combined with analytical or numerical analysis.
Microbiology laboratory at SINTEF SeaLab
Our laboratory applies a range of analytical methods in the fields of microbiology, molecular biology and medical microbiology. Our activities focus primarily on the biodegradation of environmental toxins and the implementation of data in our environmental models.
Norwegian Centre for Plankton Technology
The Norwegian Centre for Plankton Technology is an experimental facility that meets international standards for research and development. We offer researchers, students and the industry an opportunity to conduct relevant research on a wide range of plankton organisms.
The Ocean Basin Laboratory is used for basic as well as applied research on marine structures and operations. A total environmental simulation including wind, waves and current offers a unique possibility for testing of models in realistic conditions. With a depth of 10 metres and a water surface of 50x80m the Ocean Basin Laboratory is an excellent tool for investigation of existing or future challenges within marine technology.
With support from the Norwegian Research Council, SINTEF and NTNU are establishing the full scale OceanLab laboratories in Mid-Norway to meet requirements for education, research and innovation in the marine and maritime sectors. The first Nodes in this infrastructure will be available for collaborating partners from academia, research organizations and/or industry in 2023. The OceanLab infrastructure will be an integrated part of the future Ocean Space Centre when the centre is finished.
This laboratory incorporates a “process hotel”, in which industrial companies and their equipment suppliers can obtain access to high-level knowledge within fields such as process engineering and management, and machine and measurement techniques. These are used in combination with knowledge of the input raw materials as a basis for developing and testing new processes.
