The Norwegian Navy is planning to move its floating quay from the Arctic base of Olavsvern to the Ramsund Naval Base in Nordland County in Northern Norway to help charge submarine batteries.
The Arctic base, which the navy abandoned last year, lacks important support facilities on land as the Norwegian submarines are diesel-electric and have batteries that need charging every fourth or fifth sortie.
Once the base in Northern Norway is ready, the submarines will not have to go to the Norwegian Navy’s main base at Haakonsvern near Bergen to get their batteries charged.
