ESNA has been granted R&D funding

The grants run from 2016 through 2018 and involve collaboration with the local university UiA (University of Agder) in Grimstad/Kristiansand, NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) in Trondheim and the highly specialized CFD/FEM consultant cDynamics, all in Norway.

"These grants are a confirmation that our business set-up is right", says Trygve H. Espeland, co-founder and naval architect of ESNA. "These organizations have performed a technical and commercial evaluation of our R&D programs and our competence and have concluded positive".

"The grants provide the economical freedom we need to further develop vessel transfer and access technologies for offshore windfarms both further offshore and nearshore.  We are currently working with new and innovative ideas we hope to present to the market soon", says co-founder and naval architect Nere G Skomedal. "This financial input also allows us to strengthen our team, so that we are now on the search for a new colleague".
