Marine technology

A Digital Fishing Trip

Four Norwegian research projects develop artificial (marine) intelligence. Their results will change how you view a fish.

Robots – our new underwater astronauts

Soon it may be easier to design, plan and carry out operations in deep water.

Cleaning ship emissions with metal sponge cells

By 2020, ports around the world will be implementing strict emission standards for ship exhaust. A small spinning steel sponge may be the solution for the shipbuilding industry.

Here comes the electric fishing boat

The world’s first electrically powered fishing boat will be presented this August in Trondheim, Norway. But more time and development is needed before it can run completely without diesel.

Marine technology for extreme conditions

Tomorrow’s maritime technology must be able to handle extreme conditions during Arctic and deep-water operations. A new research centre designed to develop these technologies holds promise for Norwegian industry.

Tailor-made for the aquaculture sector

Fish husbandry workers have played an active part in developing work clothing tailor-made for their wet, windy and messy working conditions.

Ships without skippers

Researchers believe that in ten to twenty years time there will be 200 metre cargo vessels plying the oceans without the need of a captain or crew.

Filleting robot helps the Norwegian fishing industry

A newly developed white fish filleting machine could give this Norwegian industry a much-needed boost.

The ship that waves won’t rock

This ship makes it easier to find one’s sea legs, thanks to opposing waves created in specially-designed tanks fitted in the hull.

Lasers catching the wind in rough seas

Wind gauges that use laser beams will soon be tested offshore where gigantic wind farms will operate.
