Internationalization of Norwegian offshore wind industry
Europe needs more green energy. Offshore wind power is an expanding market for Norwegian maritime industry.
New ocean energy concepts
SINTEF is involved in projects concerning novel concepts and innovative solutions for ocean energy, such as DeepWind and FAROFF, supported by the European Union and the Research Council of Norway.
Dudgeon offshore wind farm
SINTEF has been heavily involved in both the pre-design and design phases of the Dudgeon wind farm in waters to the east of the UK.
“Green water” on Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSOs)
In its quest to meet the growing demand for energy, the offshore industry is moving into ever deeper waters, and resources are being exploited in more and more demanding ocean environments. FPSOs, or Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessels, are playing an increasingly important role in international offshore petroleum activity.
