Autonomous vessels may become major priority in Norway
On 4 October, the Norwegian Minister of Transport and Communications, Ketil Solvik-Olsen, will open the launching conference of Norsk Forum for Autonome skip (Norwegian Forum for Autonomous Ships, NFAS) in Oslo. Technology related to unmanned vessels may become a major priority for the Norwegian technology industry.
The world's first ship tunnel tested under harsh weather conditions
The sea around Stad is one of the most exposed and dangerous areas along the Norwegian coastline. Heavy waves come from different directions at the same time, creating critical situations. In order to ease ship traffic and increase safety, the Norwegian Coastal Administration intends to build a ship tunnel, the first of its kind in the world.

Hydrogen Fact Report for Akershus Council
Akershus county (the Norwegian county surrounding the around the city of Oslo) required on short notice a fact report to draft their hydrogen strategy, and that had to be ready by the end of September 2016. They contacted SINTEF, who prepared the report within 15 days from contract signature.
The climate is changing in the Arctic and projections by the IPCC suggests valuable marine resources are migrating further north. What does this mean for fishers, for tourists, for international politics and future communities in the far north, and for the Svalbard fisheries protection zone and Norwegian sovereignty in the area?
