Elop enters into product development collaboration with Semcon Norge AS

Following its recent listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange Merkur Market, the Norwegian tech company Elop has signed a product development agreement with Semcon. This forms part of the company’s plans to launch Elop’s concrete scanner later this year. The cooperation will result in a scanner solution ready for commercial sales.

Unique technology, unique user experiences

 We are extremely pleased with our agreement and excited to work with Semcon. Their deep domain expertise in product development and industrialisation will assist Elop in developing the Cobri scanner into a robust and user-friendly solution. This project will include user-based development of the present solution, and optimalisation for efficient operation and production prior to initiation of commercial sales, says Elop CEO Kjersti Kanne.

The collaboration with Semcon also encompasses digital product information to simplify the use and service of the scanner. Semcon’s wide expertise across many industries, will enable Elop to provide relevant and easily accessible information to its users.

In parallel with product design work on the scanner, Elop will continue to develop the digital inspection solution which will be a central part of the first version to be launched in the market.

 The planned solution is based on our unique and patented technology solving industry wide challenges in critical areas of quality assurance and monitoring. We provide vital information about the sub-surface condition of critical infrastructure to support asset owners in their decision-making process. Our technology reveals structure and defects in concrete, and these insights can help users and owners make informed decisions to ensure safe and viable operations – from a commercial, social and environmental perspective. Our aim is to drive better and more sustainable outcomes and to do so in collaboration with suppliers and partners who share our view on this” says Kanne.
