The use of drones creates hazardous situations in aviation18.6.2018 11:40 | Aktuelt
In the beginning of June drones were flown in the immediate vicinity of Norway’s main airport, Avinor Oslo Airport. This is illegal and can lead to very dangerous situations. On Wednesday 13 June there were two incidents of illegal drone use close to Oslo Airport, which led to the air traffic controllers closing the runways for air traffic for a period. Luckily, no harm was done this time, but the incidents have been reported to the police. “We take these incidents very seriously. This is illegal, and we ask that everyone who owns and operates a drone to be careful, and not least to familiarise themselves with and respect the rules, says Henning Bråtebæk, Director of Airside Operations at Oslo Airport. “For aircraft in the landing or take-off stage, drones constitute a particularly serious hazard, quite simply because the aircraft are so close to the ground that there is a real risk of a collision between aircraft and drone. This could lead to an adverse aviation incident or in the wor

Norway’s deepest geothermal borehole under construction at Avinor Oslo Airport12.6.2018 13:38 | Aktuelt
“Groundbreaking Norwegian technology allows us to drill the deepest land-based geothermal borehole in Norway ever. It enables us to use the heat in the ground to heat buildings or other major installations,” says director of airside operations, Henning Bråtebæk. The engine test site as trial project In a controlled manner, the concept can send cold water deep underground, whereupon heated water is returned to the surface. This can then be used for heating building, or in the case of this project, to heat the engine test site and keep it clear of snow. Not only is the technology groundbreaking, but never before has a Norwegian land-based geothermal borehole been drilled so deep. The first in Norway to 1,500 metres “We’ve drilled to a depth of 1,500 metres for both boreholes, and when the project is completed they should be capable of heating the entire area of the engine test site. This has never before been achieved in Norway,” explains Thor Erik Musæus, general manager of Rock Energy
