This means there now is a known fairway for safe navigation into Rijpfjorden. This fairway will be used by MAREANO during planned survey expeditions in 2017 and 2018.
Chart No. 541 Nordporten–Sjuøyane was published 4 May 2017. The chart is not printed, but offered as a POD-chart (Print on Demand) from approved suppliers.
The chart has never existed before, and will from now on be a part of the Norwegian main chart series for Svalbard. The scale is 1:100 000 and the chart overs waters from Nordporten (north in Hinlopenstretet), Lågøya, Nordkappsundet and to Sjuøyane.
