Welcome message from the NNCOLD President

On behalf of the Norwegian National Committee on Large Dams, I am proud and honoured to welcome you, as a part of the distinguished ICOLD community, to Norway. The ICOLD 83rd Annual Meeting and 25th Congress will take place in the City of Stavanger from 13 until 20 June 2015.

Bjørn Aase HONNINGSVÅG
President NNCOLD
 
I am  happy to present our close cooperation with the International Centre for Hydropower (ICH) in organizing the Annual Meeting and Congress. Like ICOLD, the Centre is a non-profit organization established in Norway to promote and support the sustainable development of hydro power. Every second year ICH organizes an international Hydropower Conference. In 2015, we are joining forces and the ICOLD symposium organized during the Congress week, is organized by ICH as their Hydropower Conference. We do hope this will appeal to most of you to join us for the entire Congress Week.
 
The era of extensive hydropower development and dam construction ended some 30 years ago, but we do still have a considerable knowledge base in the field of dam and hydro expertise. Today, focus is being drawn to the maintenance and upgrading of dams, modernization of environmental standards, public safety and emergency action planning among others.
 
The Organizing Committee is working very hard to make our event the best ICOLD Annual Meeting and Congress ever, scientifically as well as socially. We are doing our best to make this a well organized week of great experiences, bringing you memories for life. 

I welcome you to Norway. Come to Norway – Feel the Power.
 
Bjørn Aase HONNINGSVÅG
President of NNCOLD
