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: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
