Mehman Ahmadli has joined the Department of Geoscience and Petroleum at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to undertake a 3-year PhD-project in the field of Subsea Technology. The main supervisor is Tor Berge Gjersvik (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and as co-supervisors are Sigbjørn Sangesland (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and Rory MacKenzie (TOTAL). Mehman’s project “Valves and materials – design concepts for simplifications” will investigate new possibilities for valves and actuators assuming all-electric control system and exploit alternative designs (valve types, materials, and placements) exploiting possibilities from rearrangement of equipment that are proposed to enable low-cost subsea field development.
Mehman has B.Eng. and MSc. in Petroleum Engineering from Heriot-Watt University and Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
