A wide range of measurements will be carried out using the up-to-date onboard and towed facilities; the Research Vessel laboratories will be able to process the obtained data in real time.

    The ARC4 ice class of the vessels allows them to independently overcome first-year ice with a thickness of up to 0.6 meters in winter-spring navigation and up to 0.8 meters in summer-autumn one. The length of the vessel will be 122, 5 meters, deadweight – 8130 ton. The endurance of such vessels is 50 days / 7,500 nautical miles. Helicopters pads are provided on the vessels.
