Norut develops technologies adapted to meet challenges in the Arctic climate. Drift ice, icing, pressure ridges and winter storms make strict demands on off-shore constructions. Several industrial operations in northern and Arctic areas demand new thinking on the use of materials, surveillance, emergency response and security. Norut’s unmanned aircraft systems are utilized in an increasing number of areas. The combination of extreme track force in a steep landscape with high precipitation is being tested by the Ofoten Line. We engage in research on Arctic technology because the action is occurring in the north.
The government promises that the NORDSATSING initiative will be continued for a further three years, up to the end of 2016.
“This is a red-letter day for the region, the application group and Norut,” says CEO Ivan C. Burkow when summing up the establishment of a national centre for petroleum research in the Arctic.
Solar Energy Days are back. Come visit Narvik University College Thursdag May 2.
Trains transporting iron ore to Narvik operate 365 days a year. The interim storage of the iron ore outdoors during winter can lead to logistical challenges.
The future is bright: Many Nordic regions have potentials for exploiting solar energy matching that of the solar giant Germany.
Experts in railway technology will gather in Narvik on November 21-22. The seminar marks the official opening of the Norwegian Railway Technology Centre (NorJeTS).
Ten ships navigated the Northeast Passage last year. It will be a long time before the Northern Sea Route becomes an important navigational route.
A group of researchers from Norway travelled to the summit of the Greenland Ice Sheet to make measurements of solar radiation and snow albedo. See video.
