Welcome to webinar about COSRVA on Monday April 27th.
In 2017, the Arctic Council’s Emergency Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (EPPR) Working Group commissioned the Circumpolar Oil Spill Response Viability Analysis (COSRVA) to better understand how often weather and sea conditions around the circumpolar Arctic may hinder or impede marine oil spill response systems.
In a Phase 2 of the COSRVA project, EPPR made the results of the original study available via an online portal. This portal allows users to explore the COSRVA results for a particular location or region. At the same time, the dataset used for weather and sea conditions was updated to the latest version.
Webinar 27 April 2020
Oil spill response experts and planners are hereby invited to a webinar 27 April 2020. The purpose of the webinar is to present the COSRVA portal and summarize the recent updates.
The webinar will if needed take place in two sessions to accommodate for time differences:
- Session 1: 10:00 – 11:00 CET
- Session 2: 19:00 – 20:00 CET
To participate in the webinar, please register here.
Login info and details are forwarded for the registered participants.

Improved risk assesments in the Arctic
Sailing and operating in Arctic waters poses more risks than in other regions. Untill now, operators have lacked a proper common tool for risk assessments that includes these specific Arctic Risk Influencing Factors (ARIFs). The Norwegian Coastal Administration has lead an international cooperation to develop such a tool - a tool that will increase maritime safety in the Arctic Region.
New digital routes available at routeinfo.no
112 new digital routes and waypoints are now available for vessels planning port calls from Haugesund to Stad in Western Norway. Routeinfo.no provides quality-assured sailing routes and route information for mariners.
Fees for 2020: Reduction in Safety Fees and increase in Pilotage Fee
The Safety Fees are reduced by 2.7 per cent on average. The Pilotage Service Fee and Pilotage Readiness Fee are increased by 4.3 per cent, while the Pilot Exemption Certificate Fee is increased by 2.3 per cent.
New AIS basestations strengthen maritime traffic monitoring on Svalbard
On September 13, 2019, the Norwegian Coastal Administration deployed a new AIS (Automatic Identification System) basestation on the island of Prins Karls Forland, west of Spitsbergen. This basestation is powered by solar and wind energy, and is the first of its kind in an area without infrastructure.
Digital Route Service is available from Sandefjord to Haugesund
From June 3, 2019, routes and route information will be available for vessels arriving ports in Skagerrak and Rogaland. This is an extension of the Digital Route Service that was launched in the Oslofjord in 2018.
