Speakers

Bertil Nistad
Technology Manager

Bertil Nistad currently works as a technology manager at COMSOL in Norway, and has participated in the development of the Corrosion Module. Before he joined COMSOL in 2009, he studied at NTNU, where he received his PhD in electronics and metamaterials. In 2017–2018, he worked as a principal engineer at FORCE Technology on different tasks, mostly concerning cathodic protection simulations.

Harald Osvoll
FORCE Technology Norway AS

Harald Osvoll has extensive experience within the field of corrosion, materials, and corrosion protection. He is recognized as an authority in offshore cathodic protection (CP) and serves in various professional committees. He has acquired substantial expertise in the computer modeling of CP systems. He was instrumental in developing the SeaCorr™ software, which is the CP simulation software with the longest track record in the world. His many years in the field has earned him extensive knowledge on the actual performance of CP systems, which has given him a very good basis for carrying out cost-effective CP retrofits.
