ColdTech – Sustainable Cold Climate Technology
The main objective of the ColdTech initiative is to establish a broad cooperative environment to perform cold climate research in Narvik. This effort includes the establishment of the Cold Climate/High North Technology Research Centre. The main consortium partners, Norut in Narvik and Narvik University College, have carried out research and development in various areas of cold climate technology since 1990.
ColdTech is led by Norut. The consortium consists of Norut, Narvik University College, North Campus Energy and Norut, Luleå Technical University and DNV. The project has an initial project period of 5 years and a total budget of about NOK 75 million.
