Our aims are to promote a reasonable degree of co-existence among various industrial interests and to encourage the creation of sustainable marine value.

SINTEF Marine consists of operational units that can point to long experience of performing applied research aimed at maritime and marine applications. We perform contracts for national and international industry and authorities. Our customers come from such sectors as offshore and energy, shipping, the fishing industry and aquaculture.

We provide services for operating companies, system suppliers, engineering companies, consulting and service companies and suppliers, as well as the authorities.
 Our contracts include R & D and verification projects for industry, Joint Industry Projects (JIPs), EU projects and industrial and competence development projects financed by the Research Council of Norway.
