Objective: To position DNV GL at the forefront of new ocean industries

A cross-section of the ocean with drilling platform and ship and more

The research programme on Group level focuses on:

  • Offshore food production
  • Ocean stewardship

The 'offshore food production' project will focus on offshore fish farms in exposed environments. Current challenges related to competition for acreage, lice and environmental waste have lead the industry to explore the potential for offshore food production, either in exposed coastal areas or ocean areas. This will require novel innovations and new technology, through new offshore structures and vessels, new operational procedures, more automation and autonomy.

The 'ocean stewardship' project will explore ways the industry can use digitalization, new technology and new models to monitor and manage the environmental status and sustainable health of the oceans.
