- This new vessel will make a great difference for how marine researchers at our university can work with many different marine questions and promote collaboration across disciplines, says Christoph Humborg, scientific leader at Baltic Sea Centre. Its modern technical properties of high standard will make it possible for us to understand the world below the surface already during the expedition.

Modern equipment

The new ice-breaking vessel will be 22 metres long and 7 metres wide. It will be equipped with technical instruments for water- sediment- and geophysical sampling. It will be usable in a larger area compared to previous vessels. It will be stationed at the Askö Laboratory.
