Ocean Class

The Ocean Class research vessel offers outstanding science-handling abilities. It is equipped with dynamic positioning, broad-band data transmission capability, and a full suite of acoustic transducers, enabling it to carry out multi-disciplinary field observations in ice-free waters anywhere within an ocean basin.

The vessel hull is optimized to reduce resistance and bubble sweepdown and increase fuel efficiency. Other features include a retractable centerboard, underwater radiated noise mitigation, an uncontaminated seawater system, and trace elements sampling.


Each of our vessel concept designs is fully customizable. Contact us to learn more and find out how this design can be adapted to meet the demands of your operation.
