RV "Kronprins Haakon" will have a cruising speed of 15 knots and be capable of breaking through ice up to one metre thick. The Kronprins Haakon has been built to operate in challenging ice conditions, which means it can go further north and south than any other Norwegian research vessel. It is equipped with the very latest high-tech equipment, enabling us to perform more complex studies.
