Project objective

Precompetitive research laying a foundation for industrial value creation and cost-effective offshore wind farms. Emphasis is on “deep-sea” (+30 m).

Expected outcome

Excellent research work directed towards industry needs is carried out. A total of 40 industry relevant results and innovations are in progress. This includes new software tools, processes and technology. The results of NOWITECH are migrating to commercial use, licence agreements, and business developments. The educational programme provides for first-rate recruitment opportunities for the industry. NOWITECH has so far financed 25 PhD students and 5 post-doctoral researchers. In addition, 10 PhD students and 2 postdocs on offshore wind energy are on-going at NTNU with finance from other sources, but carried out in alignment with NOWITECH.
