Research at NTNU AMOS
The research at NTNU AMOS is divided into two research areas: unmanned vehicles and robots, and safer, smarter and greener marine operations. Our research projects are found in the menu to the left.

Combined wind and wave energy converter concept (STC, Spar-Torus-Combination) in survival conditions
video: numerical study carried out at NTNU AMOS in collaboration with CeSOS PhD candidate Ling Wan and with CNR-INSEAN. Experiments performed at Marintek. The STC concept is developed in the EU FP7 MARINA Platform Project.

Closed Flexible Fish Cages (experiment by Ida M. Strand, NTNU AMOS):
To solve the sea lice challenge for the net based aquaculture industry, it is proposed to use closed floating systems in the sea. One type of closed system is a Closed Flexible Fish Cage, this system resembles the net based system, but the net is exchanged with a membrane. To understand the response of the Closed Flexible Fish Cage in current and waves, more knowledge was needed. To build this knowledge, multiple model experiments were run for different filling levels, for current and waves.
