Fosenbru Conference 2020
We have envisaged that we will now arrange Fosenbru conferences, either every two years, depending on how much new material it will be. The first of its kind was scheduled for June 3 or 4, 2020 at the Ørland Cultural Center in Brekstad. It is now clear that it must be postponed until such events can be held.
We have so far been in a phase of basic investigations, while we are now into a new phases in which we are preparing projects. We want people at Fosen and others to be able to keep up with this work, as well as the more general developments in areas that are important to the projects.
It will be a one-day conference, and the program that was prepared consisted of, among other things:
• The forecast calculations Fosen 2060

Otherwise, we plan input from various stakeholders, with subsequent debate and input from the auditorium. We will return to this when a new date is clarified.
Investigation program for business
Soon we will invite business and industry to collaborate on an investigation program for business and industry at Fosen. We envision that subcommittees will look at aquaculture, agriculture, real estate, industry, trade and service, and the business community otherwise.
The themes will be how new infrastructure can affect recruitment and access to labor, productivity, value creation, growth, and Fosens and Trøndelag’s attractiveness as a working region.
The Fosenbru projects in the short and long term
We are now seeing the end of a few years with several basic investigations, and as mentioned above, we are now entering new phases where we are preparing projects. A significant part of this will be planning and impact analysis in accordance with the Planning and Building Act for connections and crossing the Stjørnfjord.
Other topics will include environmental data for waves, wind and electricity, design basis for the cruise, financing analysis, contracting and implementation strategies, etc.
We will come back on this one.
