Kongsberg Finalizes Training Courses on New Research Vessels

Kongsberg Maritime has recently completed two training courses for the new research vessels.

The first course was at the University of Stockholm, which is currently testing its new research vessel, Electra. The new ice-breaking vessel, 24.3 meters long and 7 meters wide, is equipped with technical instruments for water- sediment- and geophysical sampling.

Kongsberg Maritime provided a course on the R/V Electra’s Kongsberg hydrographic equipment for the surveyors, operators and technical personnel onboard.

The course lasted for a week and included practical training on the Kongsberg EM 2040 and K-Sync systems installed on the vessel.

The second course was for the new Norwegian Institute of Marine Research owned research vessel, Dr Fridtjof Nansen. This new 74.5 meters in length, 17.40 meters breadth fishery and oceanographic research vessel replaces an old vessel of the same name, which has been navigating the African coast since 1993, carrying out in-depth research in the marine ecosystems for the EAF-Nansen project.

The new R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen is outfitted and prepared for operations in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Its primary duties will include ecosystem studies, emphasising fishery research operations.

Kongsberg provided a practical operator course on hydrographic equipment installed while the R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen was on trials from Bergen to the inner Sognefjord.

The course included modules on the Kongsberg EM 302, EM 710, SBP 300 and K-Sync systems, with focus on how to set up the equipment for best performance at different depths and discussions on how to prioritize between systems for different type of jobs.
