2021-21. * New Chart (NC): 62 “Entrance to Hyttevågen”

New Chart 62 “Entrance to Hyttevågen” is a nautical chart covering a central part of Ølve (Norway). The chart shows depths and navigational aids in Storeholsund, as well as approaches to the berths at Dalsjøen, Korshamn, Vesleholsund, and Nyhamar / Palfinger Marine.

Please note that the age and quality of most of the hydrographic source information used to compile this first edition of chart 62 is not satisfactory by modern survey standards. Official Norwegian paper charts are also not satisfactory within the area of this chart due to their small scale. Mariners should consider using Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) NO4F1011 “Kvinnheradsfjorden” in addition to this chart, particularly on deep-draft vessels.

2020-27. * Chart NO 20: New Edition (NE)

Chart NO 20 “Sunnhordlandsfjordene” has been published as a New Edition (NE) by Kartverket on 26 April 2019.

This New Edition cancels the previous edition (published in 2015). However, it does not contain any changes significant to navigation, therefore it does not make the 2015 edition obsolete and it may safely be treated as a Revised Reprint by pleasure craft not required by law to carry up-to-date official charts (e. g. Forskrift om navigasjons­hjelpemidler / SchSV Anlage 1 C.I.4.3.).

Comprehensive list of changes in this (Limited) New Edition:

  • All issued official Norwegian Efs up to and including Efs 07/19 have been applied.
  • Magnetic variation has been updated (see also NM 2020-25 * T).
  • 53 topographic names have been added, removed, completely replaced, or otherwise considerably changed.
  • 128 topographic names have undergone minor spelling changes.
  • The coastline in the harbour of Eidsvik (Halsnøya) has been slightly refined.

While the 2015 edition may safely continue to be used for navigation, obtaining this updated version of chart NO20 is still recommended even for pleasure craft: Occasionally geographical names are spoken or spelled (for example when reporting positions by radiotelephone), and it is useful that all parties involved in such communication use the same reference for such names. Considering that, it would seem sensible for all chart users to obtain this New Edition at their earliest convenience in spite of the lack of changes significant to navigation.

  • Berge (1:2000)
  • Korshamn (1:2000)
  • Korshamn berths (1:1000)

Format: ISO A4

2014-23. * New Chart (NC): 61 “Ølveskysten fra Sponavika til Støaneset med Hyttevågen”

New Chart 61 “Coast of Ølve from Sponavika to Støaneset with Hyttevågen” is a nautical chart for navigational purposes along Ølve (municipiality of Kvinnherad, Hordaland, Norway). Its larger scale and more manageable format when compared to the official Norwegian nautical chart NO 22 also helps to support navigation in small craft in the bays and fjords of Ølve.

The design of chart 61 is akin to older Norwegian charts. It has been produced with Norwegian Datum of 1948 (NGO48) and is referred to the Oslo prime meridian. The difference to WGS84 is explained in a note on the chart. Its contents have been corrected through Efs through July 2014.

Scale: 1:35000
Format: ISO A4
Datum: NGO 1948
Small corrections: 3 August 2014
Corner coordinates:
59° 58.3′ N, 5° 00.4′ W of Oslo (SW corner)
60° 01.2′ N, 4° 50.9′ W of Oslo (NE corner)

Chart 61 is in Norwegian language.
