Prior to the meeting, participants were given a guided tour of the Centre, as it has been proposed that full-scale CO2 pumps be tested at Tranby in connection with LINCCS.

Tranby Technology Centre was built in 1975 and has since then supplied equipment for ship, defence and paper industry in addition to oil & gas equipment. Today, it serves as one of Aker Solutions’ global technology centers, focusing on innovation in the energy industry and working together to accelerate product offerings. In addition, related subsidiary companies as Benestad, Rainpower and HIPTec share the innovative production areas.

At Tranby Technology Centre, Aker Solutions can showcase offerings to customers, partners and colleagues, providing a space for collaboration, innovation and design thinking. There is also capacity to do data analytics and 3D printing as part of the newly refurbished areas.

The Tranby Facility is one of the largest multidisciplinary mechanical workshops in Norway. The workshop has invested in high-end technology machine tools and clad-weld rigs. All assembly and test areas have been renewed and upgraded to highest HSE standards. A dedicated R&D hall at 1,500 m2, including stations, test bays and test pits, has also recently been upgraded and in place for the product groups.
