Madshus is the oldest, still operating, producer of cross-country skis. The factory delivers advanced racing and entry level skis with regards to material quality, design, weight and defined ski properties.
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).
Watereye - O&M tools integrating accurate structural health in offshore energy
The Watereye project will design an advanced monitoring system that will make it possible to remotely detect corrosion levels
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.
The FarmConners project supports the implementation and industrialisation of Wind Farm Control (WFC) as an additional feature for the development and operation of wind power plants. It brings together actors in all relevant fields connected with the market uptake of WFC: research institutes, industry and certification agencies. FarmConners will coordinate a reliable assessment of the WFC possibilities, promising more green power from existing and upcoming assets for the price of a software update.
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.
FastTrans - Insulation stressed with fast rise time repetitive voltages from high voltage power electronics
High voltage power electronic converters are central elements in the physical infrastructure of any flexible energy system because they enable effective switching and seamless control of the power flow between the different suppliers and consumers in the electric power grid. However, the rapid switching of power electronic converters cause voltage surges with fast rise times that can inflict more severe stress on the insulation of electrical apparatus than traditional stress caused by pure sinusoidal voltages.
Digital Substation (DS) based on the standard IEC 61850 is rather new in Norway; one of the few pilot projects is Furuset substation owned by Statnett.
