Cabled Ocean Observatory LoVe
The Lofoten-Vesterålen Cabeled Ocean Observatory (LoVe) is a Norwegian infrastructure for marine research, monitoring and subsea technology development.
Lofoten-Vesterålen is an oceanographic, biologic and economic hotspot off the North Norway coast. The first phase of the LoVe observatory was funded by Statoil in 2013. The expansion of this observatory was granted funding by the Research Council of Norway in 2015 through the Infrastructure programme. The infrastructure project, led by the Institute of Marine Research, is a collaboration between major Norwegian marine research institutions and industry.
