Tyholt Tower (Tyholttårnet) is a 124-metre (407 ft) tall communications tower which opened in 1985. The Centre for Marine Technology of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Centres of Excellence Centre for Ships and Ocean Structures (CeSOS) and AMOS (Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems) are hosted at facilities close to the tower. Still in close proximity is MARINTEK, hosting the only major test tank for maritime technology in Scandinavia. Located in Tyholt are the Trondheim offices of Telenor and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. The latter hosts the radio channels NRK P1 and NRK P3.[3][4]
