Tuesday Sept. 20 the RCN team: Kai Mjøsund, Liv Jorunn Jenssen and Øyvind Veddeng Salvesen had their Site visit to SFI Offshore Mechatronics.
University of Agder as host, presented the status of the Center and presented also the future plans for Mechatronics Innovation Lab. The feedback from RCN was that the SFI Offshore Mechatronics is on track. In the picture above (from the right): Center Director Geir Hovland- (UiA) Special adviser Liv Jorunn Jenssen (RCN), Controller Silje Bartholdsen (UiA), Faculty Director Heidi Kristensen (UiA), Chariman SFI Offshore Mechatronics Leif Haukom (GCE NODE), Adviser Øyvind Veddeng Salvesen (RCN), Deputy Director General Kai Mjøsund (RCN), Head of department Rein Terje Thorstensen (UiA), Adm. manager SFI Offshore Mechatronics Rachel Funderud Syrtveit (UiA), Chief Financial Officer Kjetil Hellang (UiA) and University Director Seunn Smith-Tønnessen (UiA)
The RCN participantans also got a demonstration in the UiA Motion lab, by PhD Research Fellow Sandre Sonden Tørdal. He is doing his work within Work Package 2: Motion compensation, led by NTNU professor Olav Egeland.
Hard working kids from the Kindergarden “next door”, Hokus Pokus, helped breaking the first ground for Mechatronics Innovation Lab (MIL) today.
Kjetil Hellang, the Financial Director of UiA, guided the audience through speakers like Tor Henning Ramfjord (NOV), Johan Martin Ugland (JBU) and UiA Rector Frank Reichert.

Activities in the SFI (WP2,WP3 and WP4) will use the Robotics Labs at NTNU, Department of Production and Quality Engineering. The work in these work-packages will be a collaboration between NTNU, UiA, AUC and RWTH Aachen.
Activities in the SFI plan to use the Fluid Power and Mechatronic Systems Lab at the Department of Energy Technology at Aalborg University in WP1. The work in WP1 will be performed in collaboration mainly between AAU and UiA.
Activities in the SFI plan to use the simulator facilities at the Offshore Simulator Centre. These activities will be led by the SFI Partner Aalesund University College.
Activities in the SFI plan to use Ullrigg Drilling And Well Centre operated by the SFI Partner IRIS for future demos and qualification of methods and solutions.
The researchers in the SFI, in particular in WP2 Motion Compensation and WP3 Robotics and Autonomy, will have access to lab facilities provided by the Motion Laboratory located at UiA.
