- Vi har merket stor etterspørsel fra både studenter og industrien.
What are the wind and wave conditions in the areas that the Norwegian government opened for wind development in 2020? Etienne Cheynet and his colleagues have analysed the metocean conditions from 1992 to 2020 in Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II.
In June 2022, geologists from the Department of Earth sciences, associated with the Bergen Offshore Wind Centre, sailed on a scientific cruise to Utsira Nord and Sørlige North Sea II to collect data that will be used to map the sea bottom conditions in the areas opened for offshore energy production. You can read the cruise report here.
