OGS Explora

Description The RV OGS Explora is an ice-class, ocean-going research vessel owned by the OGS, Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e Geofisica Sperimentale (National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics), since 1989. The ship offers to both the European and the international earth and marine science communities a wide range of capabilities, including geophysical, marine geology and oceanographic facilities and equipment. This 72m-long ship can safely operate all the year round either in ocean and polar waters, except in the ice-covered areas. It can currently accommodate 12 scientists (a refit is under planning to bring the scientific crew to18), has a crew of 17, and is capable of 30-day missions. Among her numerous worldwide activities, noteworthy are the ten Antarctic cruises funded by the Italian Antarctic Program and the two Arctic cruises, one of which within the framework of the International Polar Year (IPY). Apart from research, the OGS Explora is currently involved in service activities for offshore industry, specifically in the cable, pipeline and well site surveys.
