At Gexcon, all explosion tests and equipment testing, together with our experimental research is performed at the Laboratories Department in Bergen, Norway.
Our test facilities include a well-equipped test laboratory at Fantoft and a large-scale test site on the island of Sotra just outside Bergen.
At the Sotra test site, explosion tests can be carried out in various test vessels up to 50 m3. Testing within the laboratory is usually limited to standard tests and work performed in apparatuses and vessels ranging from a few litres and up to approximately 2 m3.
