Mega Ice Ship
In Northern Norway an international team of ship builders and designers are attempting to build a ship like no other. At 183-metres long, the REV Ocean is the largest fully-fledged polar expedition vessel in the world.
It has an ultra-strong hull, two submarines, and supplies to last several months. It’s also crammed full of cutting-edge research equipment for scientists to conduct vital studies on the treacherous waters around the North and South poles. But building such a unique ship is a monumental challenge. A team of thousands of ship builders at two separate shipyards have to work through the brutal Norwegian winter, and install one-off designs to exacting standards. The end result is a truly unique ship that’s tough enough to tackle the world’s most dangerous seas.
