Development of new corrosion detection and monitoring technologies.
CMR’s ambition is to become an international promotor of new measuring technologies dedicated to integrity management in general and corrosion (both internal and external) in particular. To assume a leading position within the relevant global scientific and technological communities, we will build on the current in-house expertise and R&D projects:
- Funded by the Research Council of Norway:
- FKP for undercoating and through-wall corrosion detection/monitoring (245349 /E30).
- Optical fibres for detection of corrosion under isolation (245395 /E30).
- Funded by the industry (in this case Statoil and Gassco):
- FKP for monitoring internal corrosion in offshore pressure vessels.
CMR will actively seek national and international cooperation opportunities with science and technology research organisations and as well with various industries.
