Ostrobothnia is the energy cluster of Finland and that’s why we have developed a state of the art Energy Technology laboratory. Now we also have a Space Data lab, to extend our knowledge and know-how even further!

Energy Technology laboratory

In this laboratory, the main focus is on renewable energy production. Here we research, optimize and develop wind, solar and water power solutions. This all is combined with smart controlling systems to achieve the most efficient and environmentally friendly solution for energy production.

Examples of Equipment in the laboratory

Edibon, Computer controlled Pelton turbine
H-Tec Education, Solar-hydrogen energy cycle
Armfield, concentric tube heat exchange
ABB micro SCADA monitoring and control system

For a more comprehensive list of equipment, please contact the laboratory engineer.

Space Data laboratory

The Space Data lab specializes in leveraging cutting-edge space technologies, satellite systems, space-based data, and expertise in space economy to unlock new synergies between Finnish startups, society, students, and industry.

The Vaasa Space Avenue is an immersive space dedicated to the research and interactions between space enthusiasts, researchers, startups, industry partners, and students alike. The Avenue serves as a hub for fostering collaboration, research opportunities, and providing updates on Vaasa’s latest space endeavors & exploration.

Remote sensing

The Space Data Laboratory excels in remote sensing, primarily utilizing data from Copernicus ESA and other sources. It is focused on the analysis of satellite imagery covering Earth’s surface, oceans, and atmosphere, enabling comprehensive environmental monitoring and advanced data analysis. The laboratory specializes in climate change research, sustainable development, and land use mapping. As a hub for research and innovation, it offers students, researchers, companies, and startups access to many resources. This access facilitates hands on learning, collaborative research, and the development of practical applications in remote sensing.


Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) like Galileo, GPS, Beidou and Glonass provide positioning signals around the globe. This lab can provide help in experimenting with positioning algorithms, new positioning signals, GNSS receivers or other positioning technologies like inertial, opportunistic or various indoor positioning methods.
