Oil

The Norut companies in Narvik and Tromsø don’t meet halfway when they conduct joint experiments, but rather in Hamburg. Using a large tank designed for ship testing, they are combining their expertise in oil behaviour in ice with remote sensing and drone technology. The goal is to map oil spills in sea ice-covered waters.
