Fingrid is looking for new ideas for condition monitoring of transmission grid post insulators and temperature monitoring for grid components
Kauppalehti - a leading Finnish language commerce-oriented newspaper - had just covered major development of one of the Spinverse's clients - Norsepower Oy Ltd. The company announced its agreement to install a rotor sail solution onboard of a Viking Line’s cruise ferry. This deal heralds the world’s first liquefied natural gas/wind electric propulsion hybrid passenger traffic ship.
The latest success story: Using wind to save fuel in the global maritime industry. Finnish SME secures European funding
Shipping companies are actively looking for solutions to reduce fuel consumption and environmental emissions of vessels, particularly due to the recent fuel price instability as well as the forthcoming environmental regulations. Spinverse customer Norsepower is ready to address this challenge utilising new technology, advanced materials and leading-edge control system.
From government to governance: Former Finnish Minister of Defence Carl Haglund joins Kaidi Group in Europe
Finnish politician, former chairman of the Swedish People's Party and the former Minister of Defence of Finland Carl Haglund to accelerate Kaidi Group’s growth in Europe in the rank of Vice President.
Launched in October 2015 the Fingrid idea competition challenged companies of all sizes to submit their business ideas addressing the topic of grid maintenance development. Which, essentially, means enhancing grid performance, reducing inconvenience caused by power outages and lessening environmental impacts and energy consumption. All while reducing the cost of power delivery.
Helsinki, 4 May 2015 - The European Commission’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 has granted EUR 17 million in funding for the Clean Energy From Ocean Waves (CEFOW) research project that is coordinated by Fortum, which Spinverse helped prepare and coordinate successfully.
Spinverse has joined eight other European companies, research institutes and universities in the smart-MEMPHIS project. The objective of the project is to develop new, autonomous modules for energy harvesting. Energy harvesting systems that are developed within the smart-MEMPHIS project will have many applications ranging from implantable pacemakers to aircrafts. In cardiac pacemakers, the energy generated by heart beats will be used to power the implanted devices, thus bringing significant benefits to patients and healthcare professionals alike.
FIMECC DEMAPP programme managed by Spinverse - Effective industry-driven PPP achieved great results with high impact
The industry-driven PPP, public-private partnership programme, FIMECC DEMAPP has created a unique competence platform and a variety of concrete energy, materials and cost-effective solutions boosting the competitiveness of the metals, engineering and cleantech industries. Focusing on need-based, application-driven R&D of advanced materials for extreme service conditions the programme has provided great results, both in terms of scientific novelty and high industrial impact, which were presented in the final seminar in September 30, 2014 at Kino Tapiola, Espoo, Finland.
Sustainable Bioenergy Solutions for Tomorrow (BEST) is a new research programme launched by two SHOK companies, CLEEN and FIBIC. BEST is the first extensively cross-SHOK and genuinely joint research programme, managed by Spinverse. Tekes has agreed to provide 55% of the programme funding.
Solar energy supply and demand is growing constantly. Many new solar energy construction projects are being launched in Finland. Finnish technology companies are at the forefront of development. In addition to export transactions, new businesses and job creation are expected to arise significantly from this sector in the near future.
T Control Oy has installed a fuel cell backup power unit at the TeliaSonera base station in the Vuosaari harbour area. There is no time lag in the use of the power unit...
No less than one third of a car’s fuel consumption is spent in overcoming friction, and this friction loss has a direct impact on both fuel consumption and emissions....
Aurubis Finland Oy (former Luvata Pori Rolled Products) has developed a novel solution for energy efficient buildings. Their Nordic Solar concept now demonstrated in full scale in the Pori swimming hall opened September 24th, 2011 comprises solar thermal collectors embedded directly within the prepatinated copper façade elements. Their development on new absorption coatings made in the Tekes Functional Materials Programme guarantees effective heat transfer, but more widely it shows how target-oriented material R&D combined with understanding of the application needs opens new business opportunities in a short time frame, says Dr. Markku Heino, Spinverse, Coordinator of the Functional Materials Programme.
Spinverse started managing the Demo2013 project of The Federation of Finnish Technology Industries in August 2011.
The objective of the Demo2013 project is to create an integrated and comprehensive area in Port of Helsinki, Vuosaari Harbour based on fuel cells and to gain insight on usage of fuel cells in energy production. Demo2013 is an umbrella project for several company R&D projects. The aim is to have different fuel cell applications of several companies in simultaneous operation during the latter part of year 2013 and demonstrate a collaborative long term field test of noiseless and emission-free energy applications. Results will be based on user experience and feedback the field tests. Applications include power plant, material handling equipment, backup power, light vehicles and a hydrogen refueling station.
Heat which would otherwise be lost can be saved by converting heat into electricity via Seebeck effect. Thermoelectricity has enjoyed a renewed interest. Novel research includes e.g. new materials and the structuring of matter at nanoscale. The most promising applications of thermoelectricity are found in energy saving and transport applications.
Savo-Solar’s SOLARCO development project done within the Tekes Functional Materials Programme has resulted in high-performance and high temperature resistant absorption coatings which are key enablers for novel solar-thermal collectors.
