The GASVESSEL project provides a novel efficient and flexible method for transporting Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). It introduces an innovative solution for manufacturing pressure cylinders that are 70% lighter than state-of-the-art alternatives.
SoFEM - Solar Fuelled Electric Maritime Mobility
The project "Solar Fuelled Electric Maritime Mobility" by SINTEF seeks to demonstrate the feasibility and the social, economic and environmental benefits of solar-fuelled electric boat transport in Tunisia and the wider region.
Hybrid Model Testing for Extreme Marine Environments
Real-Time Hybrid Model Testing is the science of combining advanced simulations, state-of-the-art experimental methods with active control system into a novel approach, to verify the safety and efficiency of marine structures and operations.
Optimization of Marine Energy Storage Systems for Desired Lifetime, Energy Saving and Safety
The primary objective of this project is to develop a methodology for optimized selection of energy storage solutions in hybrid ship power and propulsion systems.
Arctic shipping challenges
As the extent of petroleum activities and the extraction of other resources in the Arctic increases, shipping can expect to face new challenges.
Emergency landings for helicopters
Helicopter manufacturer AgustaWestland has been carrying out model tests in our ship-model tank in order to study emergency landings on water and helicopters’ subsequent seaworthiness. Very few test facilities anywhere in the world perform tests of this sort today.
Joint European research project on submarines (SUBMOTION)
SINTEF has been working for the past several years in research on the manoeuvring characteristics of submarines.
