Research ship on its way to Hvide Sande

The hull to Aarhus University's new research vessel AURORA has now been completed in Poland and is now on its way to Denmark. It is expected in Hvide Sande Tuesday where it during the next six months will be equipped with scientific equipment.

From the outside, the new research vessel looks complete. It is painted in white and blue with a big name and logo. But inside the ship accommodation hasn’t been fitted, engines or propellers, not to speak of all the advanced research equipment that will turn the ship into a modern research vessel, to the delight of not only Aarhus, but also for researchers and students from all over Denmark.

Aurora is 28 meters long and can accommodate 14 people for up to ten days. The ship will be able to use research equipment such as CTD, seismic equipment and underwater robots. The vessel will be equipped with a crane and A-frame. There is also room for two 20-foot containers on deck.

The ship is the first newly constructed Danish research ship since Dana was built more than 30 years ago. All Danish universities, relevant institutions and private companies will have the option to use the ship.

Hvide Sande Ship & Baadebyggeri expects to deliver the research vessel for the University of Aarhus in February 2014.

Hvide Sande is a small town on the northern tip of the Holsmland Dunes, in the western part of Central Denmark. The town has a population of 3,077.
