The partnership in ACT develops new sustainable solutions that reduce emissions and waste volumes, that accelerate digital transformation and that create new jobs through the development of the new green value chains. The projects are developed through collaboration between companies, between companies and the research environment and with broad partnerships in the value chains or across sectors. Some projects ACT actively contributes to realize and implement, as a partner and/or financier, but common to all projects listed here is that they are carried out as collaboration between partners in the cluster and that they contribute to the achievement of the partnership’s goals. ACT increases the effect of the projects by sharing experiences and results from the collaborations and inspiring more people to take the lead with new innovation collaborations.
Examples of current projects ACT is working on:
INDIGO – Capacity boost for research and education with a focus on circular economy. The project has received NOK 23 million in support from the Research Council’s FORREGION-programme.
Contact person: Krister Salamonsen, Nord universitet
The zero-emission train – preliminary project under the auspices of Rana Gruber and a larger consortium, with the aim of developing a zero-emission solution for the transport of ore from the mine to the processing plant.
The project leader is Espen Fanavold at SINTEF Helgeland.
CO2-hub Nord – a large consortium consisting of process industry, technology suppliers and research partners who will develop and pilot carbon capture from process industry in Mo i Rana. The project has triggered support from Gassnova and is a continuation of CO2-hub Nordland.
Contact persons are Jan Gabor, Mo industripark AS (Project owner) and Eli Hunnes, SINTEF Helgeland (project manager).
Green Platform project under the auspices of Finnfjord AS and UiT for the development of facilities for algae production / purification of CO2 from flue gas. The project has triggered just under NOK 100 million from the Green Platform Initiative.
Contact person is Geir-Henning Wintervoll, Finnfjord AS.
Hydrogen-hub Mo; establishment of an electrolysis plant for production of green hydrogen in Mo i Rana for use in the process industry and other purposes. The project collaboration between Statkraft and Celsa Armeringstål has generated more than NOK 120 million from Enova.
Contact person is Geir Brekke, Statkraft and Susanne Nævermo-Sand, Celsa
Glomfjord Hydrogen will realize the establishment of an electrolysis plant for production of green hydrogen in Glomfjord for use in maritime transport and other purposes. The project has triggered approx. 150 MNOK from Enova for the development of a maritime hydrogen hub in Nordland.
Contact person is Geir Ove Ropstad, Glomfjord Hydrogen
Miljøteknikk Terrateam’s agglomeration project which will develop a new process for recycling surplus materials from the process industry.
Contact person is Jens Rønning, Miljøteknikk Terrateam.
Alcoa has several projects for the development of new circular solutions, one example is the SPL project where they will develop solutions for recycling used cathode masses.
The contact person in Alcoa Mosjøen is Ellen Bromstad Myrvold.
Momek’s WelderMate and TappingMate projects are the commercialization of robotic solutions for splicing Søderberg electrodes and for robotic opening of tapping holes. The projects contribute to a safer working situation for the operators, and Momek is in the process of commercialization globally in collaboration with processing companies in the cluster.
The contact person in Momek is Alexander Johansen.
There are several cross-collaboration projects taking place in the partnership, and if you want to make other projects visible, you can send information about these to the cluster management.Kontakt oss
