DP - the jewel in the crown

NTNU professors Stig Kvaal and Per Østby have written the book «The Jewel in the Crown», about the development of Dynamic Positioning Systems (DP). It all started with NTNU (at that time NTH) Prof. Jens Balchen  who established the theoretical basic knowledge. Now, 40 years later, Kongsberg Maritime holds a solid world-leading position within dynamic positioning. In this book, we follow the technology, people and events that made it happen.

The secret life of sea trout

The NTNU University Museum, Department of Natural History, runs a major research project on the marine behavior, habitat and nutritional ecology of sea trout. The study was carried out using electronic tracking of individually labeled trout (through acoustic telemetry) and diet analyses.

ROV discovers war material on sea bottom

The national TV channel NRK joined the NTNU research vessel Gunnerus for a cruise to the deepest part of the Trondheimsfjord. Through the use of an ROV large amounts of war material was found, which had been dumped into the sea after the second world war.  As there is concern about possible contamination through leaks from these bombs and torpedo's, samples were taken for further analysis.

The Bridgehead conference was held at Frøya 22 and 23 October. During the seminar the innovative cage design of Ocean Farming was presented and new developments were discussed. Then, about 40 enthusiastic students and researchers  from a broad range of disciplines met with representatives from the aquaculture sector for idea mingling and speed dating. Finally, the students paid a visit to a salmon farm and the world's larges fish processing plant.

Several media reported about the event: Hitra-Frøya, NRK Trøndelag, and iLaks.

On 22 October 2014 more than 160 participants - companies, students, researchers and teachers - with a passion for aquaculture will come together to find smart solutions. A professional seminar and a brainstorming session will provide students, supervisors and business people with the opportunity to bring forward ideas on how the aquaculture industry can take advantage of technologies and processes developed for other sectors. A speed dating session allows industry stakeholders to meet students with different expertise and from different universities and high schools. This will result in student projects dealing with industry-relevant themes of joint interest.
