Researchers found an underwater landfill while looking for chemical discharges from mobiles and electronic devices
Research scientists in Norway recently set out on a scientific cruise in the Trondheim fjord to collect water samples and specimens of marine species. What they stumbled over was quite different from what they were looking for.
Taking control of unmanned vessels at sea
What’s needed to be able to safely send a vessel to sea with no crew? How will these vessels detect a kayaker or a recreational boat that drifts into the course of the unmanned vessel? A new Centre for Research-Based Innovation, SFI AutoShip, will look for answers to these questions – and more.
Fish farms moving onshore
Land-based fish farming offers many benefits to both the fish and the environment. In traditional offshore farms, the fish are vulnerable to sea lice infestation and infectious diseases. Modern land-based aquaculture systems are able to offer local fish products in landlocked countries.
SINTEF Ocean joins Aker and World Economic Forum's worldwide network for ocean data
C4IR Ocean aims to establish the world's largest and most comprehensive platform for data from the ocean space realm. Together with SINTEF Ocean, and the other 16 partners in the centre, the platform will lay the groundwork for developing sustainable, ocean-based solutions for the future.
IMPACT: SINTEF Joins €3.3m EU Wave Energy Research Project
Trondheim-based research institutes SINTEF Energy Research and SINTEF Ocean are both taking part in a new collaborative research and innovation project that will develop and demonstrate a next generation testing approach for Wave Energy Converters (WECs).
SINTEF Ocean joins the International Windship Association
Wind propulsion is having a renaissance as part of the push towards more environmentally friendly shipping. As a step towards contributing more actively to connect, learn and share our research within the exciting field of wind propulsion, SINTEF Ocean has joined the International Windship Association (IWSA).
Found traces of antidepressants and painkillers in crustaceans on Svalbard
A team of researchers studying our footprint in the Arctic has taken samples of marine animals and wastewater linked to tourism. Their findings have revealed surprising levels of pharmaceutical drugs.
What does a rock climbing belay device have in common with a subsea cable installation vessel?
The answer is that both can cause torsion, meaning the climbing rope or cable will start to twist. Up until now, no-one could explain why this happened. However, two enthusiastic researchers, who happen to be rock climbers, made it their business to solve the mystery.
Reveals hungry salmon with sound waves
The feed cost represents about 50 percent of the costs of farming salmon. But how do we know if the salmon is hungry or still full? Researchers have rethought to find answers. The result is less wastage and pollution – and enough food for the salmon.
