LowEmission Research Centre
The LowEmission Research Centre will develop new technologies and concepts for offshore energy systems, energy efficiency and integration with renewable power production technologies for application on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
Decision support for fishing vessels based on marine ecosystem models and fishery data
FishGuider will increase the income and reduce the costs related to catch of pelagic fish species such as herring, cod and capelin. This will be achieved by development and validation of new theory for fish migration and a novel guidance system for fishing companies.
CoolFish will develop technologies and concepts for more integrated, energy-efficient and climate friendly cooling, freezing and heating onboard fishing vessels. It will also increase the knowledge transfer between research and industry, both nationally and internationally.
CROWDGUARD shall increase salmon farmers' control during crowding operations through development and validation of new and unique technology for data collection during crowding of salmon.
SalmonInsight shall provide new knowledge and technology to improve welfare and reduce stress in salmon production.
The project emphasizes on the advancement of aquaculture technology systems that are economically sustainable and improve animal welfare. This includes, the use of flexible shielding skirts for prevention of ectoparasites infestation (Sealice,...) of farmed fish salmon, procedures for underwater monitoring and safe and efficient operation.
