  • Predicting a safe lifetime for risers

    More than 90 percent of Brazil’s petroleum reserves are found in deep water or ultra-deep water areas offshore. Researchers want to improve the lifespan and safety of a key component used to exploit these deep water reserves.
  • Fishing vessel transformed into a wave power plant

    Is it possible for a redundant fishing vessel to be used as a power plant? Absolutely. The first vessel of its kind is now anchored offshore in Norway, with the aim of generating electricity from the natural forces of the sea.
  • Using rooftop rainwater to make drinking water

    Climate change will lead to water scarcity in large parts of Africa. But there is hope – on African rooftops.
  • Ductile materials for Arctic conditions

    The production of oil and gas at temperatures between 40 and 60 degrees below zero means that researchers must advance the development of materials that can withstand these harsh conditions.
  • Preventing transformer explosions

    Technology used in the crumple zones of cars can avert serious explosions in transformers, believe researchers.
  • Tailor-made for the aquaculture sector

    Fish husbandry workers have played an active part in developing work clothing tailor-made for their wet, windy and messy working conditions.
  • Norway is Europe’s cheapest “battery”

    Norwegian hydropower is the most cost-efficient source of energy that Germany could adopt as back-up for solar cells and wind-power, new calculations show.
  • Using robots to get more food from raw materials

    Can an industrial robot succeed both at removing the breast fillet from a chicken, and at the same time get more out of the raw materials? This is one of the questions to which researchers working on the CYCLE project now have the answer.
  • Robot water pipe inspectors

    Norwegian researchers and a small company in Tromsø are taking part in a project aimed at preventing between 30 and 50 per cent of Europe’s drinking water being lost due to pipe leakages.
  • Self-repairing subsea material

    Embryonic faults in subsea high voltage installations are difficult to detect and very expensive to repair. Researchers believe that self-repairing materials could be the answer.
