Abstract
The main purpose of procuring the oceanographic research vessel with state-of-the-art technology is to provide a floating laboratory to conduct field work on the global oceans. The vessel should be properly utilized to locate and evaluate unexplored natural resources as well as to contribute international efforts to better understand and manage global environmental issues. Top priorities in the vessel design are high safety standards, noise and vibration control efficiency, and effective application of research equipment. For the accomplishment of all activities, the vessel length over all should be extended ~100 m with a gross tonnage of ~5,900 ton. In particular, the dynamic positioning system II will essentially operate at sea state 6. The high efficiency emissions reduction system will also be adopted in preparation for entry into force of 3rd exhaust emission control (Tier III). About 130 navigational and scientific instruments will be installed. The final design and model test of the new research vessel were reviewed and completed, respectively, in 2014. Currently, the ship is being built on schedule and expected to be delivered in December 2015. Within the near future, the new vessel will assume the role of carrying out multidisciplinary oceanographic researches of the highest standards in a technologically advanced and environment friendly manner. © 2015 Korea Ocean Research and Development Institute.
