M/S POLARSYSSEL is an expedition- and research vessel, made for operations in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. During the winter half-year the ship is mostly used for research projects in icy waters.
The ship can receive and land helicopters up to the size of Super Puma. It is further more equipped with licensed helicopter handling equipment.
The ship has since 1988 to 2002 been charted by the Governor of Svalbard for governmental purposes. It therefore changed its name from M/S Polar Circle to M/S POLARSYSSEL.
