Steilene is a group of islands located in inner Oslo Fjord. The metrological, power, and communications station is located at the northern end of Fyrsteila. The AWAC instrument which measures the oceanographic parameters is located 200 meters to the east and is connected by a cable.
Steilene station was previously in operation until 2005, through the efforts of NIVA. Unfortunately a lightening strike took down the communications to the station in 2005. The value of this station has long been recognized by mariners and recreationally boaters alike. Nortek understands this value and decided in 2008 to dedicate resources and equipment to bring it back online.
Nortek would like to thank help from Oslo Friluftsråd who provided the necessary access and facilities to bring this back to the community on Oslo Fjord.
