The main target is to contribute to keeping this sector competitive and performant as it is at the center of a complex web of interests (the public, politics, energy, economy, environment) in the development of circular economy.
Produced water (PW) from the oil and gas industry represents the largest direct discharge of effluent into the marine environment worldwide. Approximately 130 million m3 PW is released on the Norwegian continental shelf annually from offshore production platforms.
Manufacturing Technology Norwegian Catapult Centre
Manufacturing Technology Norwegian Catapult Centre (MTNC) is a so-called catapult or testing center where industrial companies can test new technology and new solutions. The center is lead by SINTEF Raufoss Manufacturing on behalf of NCE Raufoss.
Essential and Efficient Communication Navigation and Surveillance Integrated Systems (SESAR PJ 14 EECNS)
The project aims to specify and develop the future technologies coming from the CNS domains in order to support and manage the operational services, like the 4D trajectory management, in the future ATM system.
Content Integration (SESAR PJ 19 CI)
The project aims to generate a consolidated big picture of the future European ATM system – the SESAR 2020 Concept of Operations, high-level architecture options, services and the associated performance results.
Integrated Surface Management (SESAR PJ 03a SUMO)
The future European ATM system relies on full integration of airports as nodes into the network. In this context, the integrated surface management project (PJ.03a) aims to identify and validate operational and technological solutions aiming at enhancing airport operations.
CO2 capture and liquefaction at Preem refineries in Lysekil or Gothenburg, Sweden, for storage of CO2 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (Preem CCS Prestudy).
SINTEF is leading a research project that will enable the DevOps of trustworthy smart IoT systems, and will test the technology developed on three pilots from the smart buildings, intelligent transportation, and healthcare domains.
DACOMAT - Damage Controlled Composite Materials
The objective of DACOMAT is to develop more damage tolerant and damage predictable low cost composite materials in particular aimed for used in large load carrying constructions like bridges, buildings, wind-turbine blades and offshore structures. The developed materials and condition monitoring solutions will provide high tolerance for manufacturing imperfections and high capacity to sustain damages. This will enable large composite structures to be manufactured and maintained at low cost.
