Norwegian technology transfers
from the oil and gas sector

Renewable energy

Moorings for floating wind turbines

MacGregor Norway AS delivers anchoring solutions for floating petroleum facilities. It now sees opportunities in the sharply expanding market for offshore wind power.

Renewable energy

Improved trenching of subsea high-voltage cables

FSubsea’s pumps dig deeper into the seabed than other available solutions, eliminating the need to dump gravel over trenched electrical transmission cables in order to protect them.

Seabed mining

Seeking seabed resources efficiently

Swire Seabed AS delivers effective mapping services for mineral deposits in deep water, primarily with the aid of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

Maritime

Longer lifetime with new maintenance solution

A machinery monitoring system which allows shipowners to achieve substantial reductions in their maintenance costs has been industrialised by Machine Prognostics.

Smart city

Lighting the way for motorists

Fosstech works with products tailored for extreme environments in such areas as the oil and gas industry. It is now applying its offshore expertise and technology to illuminating motorways.

Fisheries and aquaculture

New trawl technology supports fish sorting

Scantrol Deep Vision has developed a subsea camera system which identifies the species and length of fish entering a trawl. This makes fishing more efficient and sustainable, while cutting fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions for trawlers.

Renewable energy

Dynamic cables for offshore wind farms

Unitech has specialised for several decades in the design, production and delivery of subsea equipment for the oil and gas sector, including connectors and cables. It is now turning its attention to wind power at sea.

Renewable energy

Cost-effective supports for offshore wind turbines

Wind turbine foundations can be installed at sea faster more cheaply and more safely with the solution Imenco has developed through its involvement in the oil and gas industry.

Smart city

Offshore drilling technology to robotic renovation of water distribution

Techni has succeeded in developing a solution for connecting houses to the mains water supply without the need to carry out excavation work.

Fisheries and aquaculture

Using sound for mooring line integrity monitoring

Acoustic sensors and wireless transfer allow Scanmatic’s system to monitor mooring lines on floating offshore installations. The company is now looking at new markets in offshore wind and aquaculture.

Fisheries and aquaculture

More efficient aquaculture and healthier fish

CSUB AS has succeeded in new markets in aquaculture and land-based products on the basis of delivering underwater structures to the international oil and gas industry.

Renewable energy

From fish to drilling to wind power

In 2008 4Subsea had the vision that drilling operations on the Skarv field in the Norwegian North Sea ought to be controlled by actual measurement data rather than design parameters alone.

Renewable energy

Data integration makes hydropower smarter

A digital platform which integrates large volumes of data into a unified structure for oil and gas companies is now being extended to make the hydropower generation more efficient and intelligent.

Communication

Plugging in marine-based industries

Communication, control and management of advanced operations via an offshore 4G mobile network is as relevant for fishing as it is for the petroleum sector.

Renewable energy

Aker Solutions ready to scale up offshore wind

Semi-submersible platforms from Aker Solutions can carry larger and much more powerful wind turbines than those found on land.
