Xsens AS was earlier this year awarded a DEMO2000 project contract by the Research Council of Norway, for the demonstration of Xsens Flow meter technology in topside and subsea applications. The project “Advanced non-invasive subsea and topside flow meter” has a project value of 25 million NOK for the project period from 2017 to 2020.
In 2018 Xsens flow meters will be installed and tested by project industry partners offshore and onshore. The “topside” flow meter design was successfully tested in the CMR multiphase flow loop (picture) December 2017.
The plan is to have subsea flow meters designed and tested in 2019.
