Research & Development
Eltek is a technology-focused and ambitious company. Our research and development resources are located in Drammen and Kristiansand, Norway; and Stockholm, Sweden.These centers cooperate closely under common management according to a joint development plan. Advanced technical support is also localized in Drammen. Custom engineering is decentralized to larger daughter companies in the group to satisfy customer needs.
The main task of central R&D is to design optimum DC energy systems, and develop rectifiers, control/monitoring devices, software and other building blocks that go into the assembly of systems. The development efforts focus both on break-through technologies, incremental improvements of existing designs and always with an overall aim of leveraging the latest technology and innovative designs to increase performance while reducing costs. Development strategies are based both on input from key customers, ordinary market intelligence and the leading expertise that Eltek possesses.
The company has one of the strongest technical teams in the industry, and enjoys long-standing relationships and cooperation with key academic and research institutes in Norway and the US working together with our own Master and PhD level engineers.
