Launching ceremony of special research vessel in Gdynia

On 24th June 2015 consortium of Nauta Shiprepair Yard and Crist from MARS group launched a special purpose vessel for interdisciplinary research of the sea. Special catamaran “Oceanograf” was ordered by Institute of Oceanography, University of Gdańsk.

The above catamaran is a special research vessel intended for interdisciplinary (biological, chemical, physical and geological) research of Baltic environment and nature. Apart from laboratories, observatories and a seminar room will be on it for classes for students of oceanography and other departments. The board  will accommodate  up  to 20 persons

Thanks to the special scientific  equipment “Oceanograf” will be one of the most modern vessels with Polish flag. Due to the wide  range of research that will be carried out, it will combine functions of different types of vessels.

The catamaran is 49.5 m long and 14 m wide and can reach speed of 12 knots. Double-hulled construction minimizes the angle of tilt, what is especially important during research at the sea because every unintended movement of the vessel can interfere with measurements.
