Safety. Environment.

Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponders, which give vessel name, position, speed, course and cargo to neighboring vessels and to the shore-based AIS network operated by the Norwegian Coastal Administration, is the state-of-the-art technology to be used to protect the environment and ensure safety for those traveling on Norwegian seas.

70% of Norwegian territory is ocean.
