NEW OCEANOGRAPHIC BOAT

THE WHY NOT

Sailing oceanographic boat, The WHY NOT is an advanced research platform, spectially designed to allow exploration of the mesophotic zone from 30 to 200 m, in every ocean and season. Equipped with two fast boats, a marine biology laboratory and a decompression chamber, it is the operational hub of the UNDER THE POLE expeditions.

NEW BOAT FOR OPTIMAL RESEARCH CONDITIONS

Les 10 années d’expéditions d’UNDER THE POLE nous ont permis d’identifier les limites du WHY (navire des expéditions précédentes) et d’imaginer des solutions répondant aux besoins de la recherche menée à partir de plongées profondes répétitives. Ces observations ont dressé un cahier des charges sur lequel s’est appuyé le cabinet Verdier-Beaufort pour dessiner et concevoir le WHY NOT. Le navire intègre ainsi des moyens d’expérimentation in situ avec un laboratoire de biologie marine, une forte capacité opérationnelle en plongée profonde, des espaces de travail adaptés et un niveau de sécurité maximal.

• Wet and dry scientific laboratory, aquariums, -20 ° C and -80 ° C freezers

• Decompression chamber, infirmary and physiology laboratory

• High capacity of O2 / He diving gas storage (for long and isolated missions)

• Capacité d’embarquement et de déploiement de l’habitat sous-marin CAPSULE
