Ocean Space Centre
In September 2011 the documentation for the concept evaluation of the Ocean Space Centre was submitted to the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Various alternatives to meet the overall vision were studied, among which the Board of MARINTEK suggested building of a new research infrastructure at Tyholt in Trondheim combined with an innovation centre for ocean space technology in the harbour district of the city.
Challenges related to marine littering and pollution must be solved to realize the sustainable bio-marine growth needed for the future.
The EXPOSED aquaculture operations Centre will take advantage of Norway’s strong position in the aquaculture, maritime and offshore sectors to enable safe and sustainable seafood production in exposed coastal and ocean areas.
