Ocean Albatros, finalising of the interior.

Finalising the interior of the Ocean Albatros

The CX103 designed, polar expedition cruise vessel Ocean Albatros is preparing for her first journey, and these days there is hectic activity to finalise the interior. Work is proceeding on the reception, the carpet is being installed in the lecture area and the mud room is taking shape.

After having returned from her sea trials, the interior work is continued on this X-BOW-designed expedition cruise vessel. Albatros Expeditions will start the season in the summer of 2023, with the first journey going to the island of Svalbard in Norway. The town Longyearbyen is at 78 degrees north and is the northernmost permanent settlement before the North Pole. "Later, she will join whales, icebergs, seals and Greenlandic fjords. A truly nordic built vessel with Finnish, Swedish, Danish components, and last but not least Norwegian design. We are all very proud of her," says Anders Ellemann Kristensen at Albatros Expeditions, who has sent us these photos of the ongoing activities.

The mud room

On a polar expedition cruise vessel, the passengers go for regular excursions in freezing outside conditions. The mud room is an area for storing essential gear and clothes for such excursions. The clothes and boots kept here are designed to withstand the outside conditions, while keeping the rest of the vessel clean and tidy.

Thorium-powered: ULSTEIN THOR zero-emission ship concept sparks major interest

Since unveiling the Thorium-powered ULSTEIN THOR design in April 2022, we have been swept by a wave of interest in the concept vessel and its unparalleled potential and capabilities. Set in a polar cruise context, ULSTEIN THOR alone could generate over 50 GWh of energy in a single 150-day cruise campaign. The result would be a significant environmental impact in Antarctica, with over 32,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions prevented.
