The Norwegian energy company Statkraft opened the world’s first salt power generator. It’s a system which harnesses the energy that is produced when fresh water and sea water mix. The Minister of Oil and Energy, Terje Riis-Johansen and Chairman of the Board, Arvid Grundekjoen also attended this event.
