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.
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.
Produced water (PW) from the oil and gas industry represents the largest direct discharge of effluent into the marine environment worldwide. Approximately 130 million m3 PW is released on the Norwegian continental shelf annually from offshore production platforms.
In the DiTail project we will study how exposure to fine tailings will affect marine copepods, fish eggs and fish larvae by integrating data from physical, physiological and molecular measurements into dynamic energy budget models.
DROPS — Dynamic Response of Offshore Pipelines on the Seabed
Subsea pipelines are designed to transport high temperature and often hot toxic hydrocarbons, while interacting with the seafloor and environmental actions. Precise and reliable modelling of this interaction is of key importance in order to obtain a robust yet cost effective design.
VALUMICS - Understanding food value chain and network dynamics
The overall objective of the VALUMICS project is to provide decision makers throughout food value chains with a comprehensive suite of approaches and tools that will enable them to evaluate the impact of strategic and operational policies to enhance the resilience, integrity and sustainability of food value chains for European countries.
