Research Vessel

In 2017 Groot Ship Design made a detailed concept design for a sophisticated ocean going Research Vessel together with Dutch shipbuilder Niestern Sander. The design combines the experience of previous performed projects for offshore type vessels, our knowledge of naval architecture and construction/system engineering. The result is a versatile research vessel housing a spacious work area with different kinds of laboratories, large accommodation for crew and scientists, possibility to operate with low draught and a powering solution fulfilling URN requirements. The vessel combines an attractive design with high performance levels making it suitable for long voyages and several research tasks. A datasheet can be downloaded in the menu Projects.
