Norway has built a strong global maritime knowledge base, extending from fisheries and governance of marine resources, to shipping, maritime operations, and offshore oil and gas activities. The Norwegian cluster also provides a broad range of products and services from ship equipment, service providers, shipbuilding companies, seafarers and ship owners.
There is a strong link between new regulations for the maritime industry and the development of technology. This is something we see in relation to new international rules for ballast water. As these regulations are being developed, so has the technology for being in compliance with upcoming regulations. Norwegian companies have a strong position in ballast water treatment.
An area of research will be focused around the possibilities in the Arctic areas. Norwegian authorities shall facilitate and encourage the Norwegian shipping and Norwegian maritime industries to participate actively in economic activities in the North. Norwegian ships and offshore vessels are among the world’s most advanced and are therefore well suited for operations in northern waters.
