French shipbuilding steams ahead to Oslo for Nor-Shipping

27.04.2011
UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Development, will present a dozen innovative French companies on the French Pavilion at the Nor-Shipping trade show, which will take place in Oslo (Norway) from 24 to 27 May 2011.
UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Development, will present a dozen innovative French companies on the French Pavilion at the Nor-Shipping trade show, which will take place in Oslo (Norway) from 24 to 27 May 2011.

The biennial Nor-Shipping exhibition is a leading trade show for the shipbuilding, ship-repair and shipping industries.

The event acts as a gateway to Norwegian ship owners, who control the world's fifth largest commercial fleet. Nor-Shipping is also the major event for naval-equipment manufacturers and shipyards in Europe. In 2009, the event drew nearly 16,000 visitors and 1,100 exhibitors from 52 countries, with 22 national pavilions representing the world's main shipping industries.

This year, French industry will be represented by a dozen companies and high-tech clusters in the sector. Their technologies and expertise cover a broad range of maritime equipment and services, covering areas such as construction, propulsion, electronic systems and communication. The French Pavilion, which will be located in Hall D, will be a magnet for companies wishing to establish contacts with professionals from around the world.

The following French companies will be available to meet visitors on the French Pavilion in Hall D of the trade show: BPN-Bretagne Pôle Naval/SEA to SEA (a grouping of companies involved in the shipbuilding industry in Brittany, in western France), Eutelsat (a satellite operator), GICAN (a group of naval companies), JEUMONT Electric (a specialist in electrical equipment), MASSON MARINE (an expert in marine-propulsion systems), Orange (a telecommunications operator), Saft (a manufacturer of high-tech batteries), STX Lorient (a recognised player in shipbuilding), and Zodiac SOLAS (a specialist in evacuation systems and life rafts).

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
