Going Live for LoVe

72 million Nok is given to live survey in The Lofoten-Vesterålen Cabeled Ocean Observatory (LoVe). This is a Norwegian infrastructure programme for marine research, live monitoring and subsea technology development.

Christian Michelsen Research LoVeChristian Michelsen Research (CMR) contributes to the development of LoVe with their expertise on sensors, technology, data handling and visualization.

 

72 MILL NOK FUNDING

The expansion of this observatory was granted 72 Mill  NOK funding by the Research Council of Norway through the Infrastructure programme.

The infrastructure project, led by the Institute of Marine Research, is a collaboration between major Norwegian marine research institutions and industry, and will launch and operate the expansion of the infrastructure.

LoVe

Scientist Geir Pedersen,  CMR, explains: - CMR has been involved in the development of LoVe since the beginning. We are now, together with SINTEF ICT, in charge of the technology and sensors Work Package. We are also heavily involved with data handling and visualization. These days we are finishing the call for tenders together with IMR and SINTEF ICT. The first call is already made public (electro-optical cable and subsea distribution units), the second will be out in January (platforms and sensors).

Lofoten-Vesterålen is an oceanographic, biologic and economic hotspot off the North Norway coast. The first phase of the LoVe observatory was funded by Statoil in 2013.

 

SENSOR FOR MARINE MEASUREMENTS

LoVe will include a wide range of sensors for marine measurements, providing data to a many areas of marine science and monitoring , including

  • Oceanography and Chemical Oceanography
  • Marine Ecology
  • Fisheries science
  • Marine Geoscience

 

-We are also going to use our own innovation, The Sailbuoy, in this project. We will run a demo together with LoVe partners, investigating the benefit of using autonomous surface vehicles to providing additional data around the LoVe cabled observatory, Pedersen informs.
