Gathering energy research activities
The research milieus in Bergen and Porsgrunn will be gathered into the Technology unit, part of Hydro's Operations business sector.
At the same time, a new technology forum is being established that will have steady contact with Oil & Energy's different areas of expertise.
The point is to strengthen both oil and gas-related research and work in new energy forms, which is a target area for Hydro.
"With the new organization, Hydro will be able to more quickly respond to the need for innovation and technology development. The Technology unit will get about 300 well-educated and motivated professionals who, now more than ever, will support our business development in Norway and abroad," says Hagen.
