Gunnerus R/V

NTNU's research vessel, R/V Gunnerus, was put into operation in spring 2006.

Gunnerus is equipped with the latest technology for a variety of research activities within biology, chemistry, technology, geology, archaeology, oceanography and fisheries research. In addition to research, the ship is mainly used for educational purposes and is an important platform for marine courses at all levels and disciplines.

The ship is fitted with a dynamic positioning system and a HiPap 502 unit, optimal for sub-surface positioning of any deployed equipment, and for ROV operations.

Non-university companies may also use this vessel.

Check for available days in our cruise-calendar. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions regarding the ship or just need help in planning a cruise.
