Even ships that plough the waves of the world’s oceans must regularly return to their home waters for a refit and repairs. Wind and weather leave their traces on the ship and its equipment. LINDENAU performed a thorough inspection of the ‘POSEIDON’.
Permanently on call: around the globe
The mission roster of the ‘POSEIDON’ is packed with assignments. For instance, 2013 saw her conducting surveys in places as far afield as the Atlantic, the Azores, the Norwegian Sea and the Mediterranean. At the end of this busy year, it was time to rest up for a while in dock for a well-deserved refit. Between 13.12.2013 and 12.1.2014, LINDENAU made the research vessel shipshape for more expeditions in the service of science.
The ‘POSEIDON’ is owned by the German State of Schleswig-Holstein. She is operated as a multi-purpose research vessel by the GEOMAR-Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel.
