NEW RESEARCH VESSEL R/V "KRONPRINS HAAKON" - MGG CONSIDERATIONS
The new vessel will be furnished with diesel-electric propulsion. Two aft azimuth thrusters each 5 MW should enable the vessel to break 1 m thick ice with a continuous speed of 5 knots, and keep 10 knots if ice thickness is reduced to 40 cm. It is approx 100 m long and 21 m wide. To put this into perspective, the German research vessel fleet flagship - R/V "Polarstern" - measures 118/25 m; twin variable pitch propellers each 7 MW permits her to break through ice 1.5 m thick at a speed of 5 knots.
This web page presents University of Bergen considerations related to MGG (Marine Geology & Geophysics) on the new research vessel "Kronprins Haakon". In this area we seek cooperation and coordination with University of Tromsø, Department of Geology who is also involved in a broad range of MGG activities.

Precedence order of rules is normally (and the most restricting rule shall apply):
ARCTIC SEISMIC DATA ACQUISITION
Acquisition of seismic data in ice is difficult and challenging. We will here present how others are planning and executing such surveys.
