Abstract
A development programme founded by the Norwegian Research Council for further increase the competitiveness of the direct electrical heating (DEH) technology was initiated in 2016 and will finish at the end of 2018. The partners in this project have long experience in development, manufacturing, installation of DEH systems and expertise inside all research areas inside DEH. The primary scientific and technological objective is to develop the technology for a low-cost, light-weight and high-efficiency DEH flow assurance system for an expanded application range. The improvements are reduced supply current, losses, weight and costs. Additionally the DEH system should be easier to install and applicable down to water depths of 3000 m.
