On 14 August, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Swedish Coastguard (KBV) submitted a joint report to the Ministry for Rural Affairs.
The report presents the results and recommendations of an investigation regarding a new research vessel for SLU/SMHI. Two alternative vessels have been studied; a new-build vessel and a conversion of an existing coast guard vessel, the KBV 001.
SSPA Sweden proudly announces the assignment from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) to conduct risk analysis and simulations of maritime traffic with different floating bridge and submerged floating tunnel design options for “Project Bjørnafjorden”.
NPRA is investigating a gigantic infrastructure project related to the 1,100 km long “Coastal Highway Route E39”, where it will be exploring the options for replacing seven existing ferry crossings between Kristiansand and Trondheim with fixed links. The fjords are both broad and deep, which requires large investments and larger structures than anything that has previously been built in Norway.
