In August 2011 NAVTEAM secured the order for a full navigation and communication package for the research vessel Sanna.

Sanna a

The name Sanna origins from the Inuit mythology, as Sanna refers to Sassuma Arnaa (also known as Zedna, Mother of the Ocean). Sanna is the root word of Sassuma and shows Greenland Institute of Natural Resources commitment and obligation to advise the Government of Greenland and other authorities on sustainable exploitation of living resources and safeguarding the environment and biodiversity.

The new research ship was finished in March 2012 and arrived in Nuuk, Greenland on the 3rd. April 2012.

The ship will be used primarily for the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources monitoring programme of the life stock of halibut, cod  and shellfish in Greenland waters and for a broad spectrum of scientific research in the marine environment, as well as sample collection in connection with environmental investigations, along the Greenland and Canadian coasts. The ship will also be a part of research and monitoring activities in connection with exploration for oil and gas and for mining activities close to the coast.

Sanna c

SANNA is fully equipped and build to withstand the harsh environment in the Arctic waters which made the supply and installation of the Navigation and Communication equipment to something special for our experienced technicians. The vessel is equipped with Dual radio installation to comply with the GMDSS regulations for traffic in sea area A4.
