      She came in for a few minutes to drop off a couple of technicians only.



      Technicians delivered with their tool boxes and spare parts:


      This vessel is brand new and LNG powered. Her is the LNG tanks at the poop:


      Do not drop anything heavy on the LNG tanks:

                          I don't have a picture of my own of RV LANCE, but yardnr. 64 from Sterkoder in Kristiansund, had the last day in service with the polar institute in Tromsø today.
                          RV LANCE will be replaced by the much larger and top modern RV KRONPRINS HÅKON

                              Thank you, very nice picture.
                              The scientists loved the LANCE and will miss her. But as they said, the world moves forward and they needed a larger and more modern ship.
                              I wonder about one thing though: On the news they said LANCE was the only ship in Norway with ice class certificates. Can that be correct? Or did they mean ice breaker classing? I seem to remember reading about many new ships getting an 'ice class' or do I mix things up here?

                              Maybe your news source mix up Ice Class and Polar Code. The first has to do mainly with hull strength while the second is new IMO Code and requirement for operation in Polar Waters. (You can read about it in the "News about Arctic Navigation" thread)
                              Lots of ships with various "Ice Class" designations, but still only a few approved by the new Polar Code. Maybe Lance was the first to obtain one?
                              Will be interesting to see where the Lance will end up next.

                            "Kristine Bonnevie" inbound to Tromsø earlier today.

                              Kristine Bonnevie..., she really looks like former Fridtjof Nansen?
