KS1-report on handling of U-864 has been submitted

Metier AS and Møreforsking Molde AS have on assignment from the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs and the Ministry of Finance carried out an external quality assurance (KS1) of the Norwegian Coastal Administration’s study of the different alternatives for further handling of U-864. The report was presented and submitted today to the Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen.

In March 2010 the Government decided to carry out a more thorough study of the raising of the wreck U-864. The Norwegian Coastal Administration was assigned the task of performing a study on different alternatives for the handling of U-864, a so-called concept selection study. The following alternatives have been addressed: the zero alternative, capping, raising, a combination of raising and capping, and combinations of raising and dredging. This investigation has now been subject to a compulsory external quality assurance.

- I will now study the report in detail. The Government will then inform the Storting in an appropriate way of further developments in the process, says Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen.

The report from Metier AS and Møreforsking Molde AS can be downloaded here (pdf-format, Norwegian only).
