The vessel will be mobilized from Europe with the pre-prototype vehicle “Patania II”, support equipment and containers, before sailing to San Diego (USA).

The vessel will work side-by-side with the German Research Vessel Sonne under the JPI Oceans project “MiningImpact II”, to perform the independent scientific assessment of the environmental impacts, generated during the Patania II tests in the Belgian and German License Areas.

GSR is looking forward to this fruitful collaboration with Solstad Offshore ASA and a successful 2019 offshore expedition.
