ACCSESS held up as a good example of Norwegian-Italian collaboration during Italian state visit to Norway

On 12 May, SINTEF’s EVP of Sustainability Nils Røkke and SINTEF Energy Research Chief Scientist and ACCSESS Coordinator Kristin Jordal had the opportunity to meet Saipem’s COO and Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Filippo Abbà during the Greening the Future Seminar in Trondheim.

The seminar was part of the Italian state visit to Norway, and focused on opportunities for bilateral collaboration between Italy and Norway within areas that are important for the green transition.

In his address, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway mentioned the tests conducted by ACCSESS last summer at Hafslund Oslo Celsio using Saipem’s CO₂ solutions as a good example of Italian-Norwegian collaboration in this area.
