The vessel Polar King has recently departed  Bergen, heading out for a 3-week survey at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge near Jan Mayen. Through the project MarMine, NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) with research partners, will explore a set of aspects regarding exploration of mineral recourses. Prior to departure, our engineers have been onboard installing the Underwater Hyperspectral Imager (UHI) on the Autonomus Underwater Vehicle (AUV) “Hugin”. This will be the first field survey with UHI installed on an AUV. Find out more about the survey at NTNU TechZone and Sysla (both in Norwegian)
