ArcticNet, Statoil Canada, RDC And Husky Energy Collaborate on Research and Technology Expedition Offshore Newfoundland and Labrador

ArcticNet, a Network of Centres of Excellence of Canada, Statoil Canada, the Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador (RDC) and Husky Energy will be partnering on a new research and technology development program on board the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in April. The collaboration will bring together the best expertise in academia and industry to collect scientific data and execute full-scale field testing of key technologies that are critical to understanding offshore and harsh weather environments. With a key focus on performing a safe expedition, this unique project will help improve safety practices related to ice hazard mitigation and provide insight on technology requirements specific to cold ocean regions.
