Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (IMR) has invited tenders for the supply of hydrographic instruments for a polar research vessel.
IMR is seeking two thermosalinographs with PVC manifold and water jacket for shipboard installation to collect information about the sea surface.
The instruments will be installed on the polar research vessel ‘Kronprins Haakon’, currently under construction at Fincantieri Muggiano Shipyard in La Spezia, Italy.
The RV Kronprins Haakon, scheduled for delivery in 2017, will be formally owned by the Norwegian Polar Institute.
According to the IMR, the installation of the thermosalinographs onboard the vessel will be performed by the buyer.
The deadline for the submission of tenders is January 20, 2017.
