RV Dana is a versatile multi-purpose vessel. Dana is capable of worldwide operation, is classified for ice navigation and is equipped to carry out a wide range of investigations within different research fields:

  • Arctic research
  • Marine biology research
  • Climate and environment research
  • Geological research
  • Fishery research

The vessel has five large laboratories provided with extensive and wide-ranging scientific equipment for analysis and measurements as well as different tools for trawl fishing, water sampling and sampling from the seabed. If special facilities are required, a container may be positioned on the aft deck (except for surveys involving trawl fishery).

DANA is available for chartering by other Danish and foreign research institutions, for example for seismic surveys.

Further information on equipment and chartering is available from Marine Superintendent Hans-Erik Mahnfeldt, +45 35 88 30 21, hmah@aqua.dtu.dk
