On 11.11.2020, Lindblad Expeditions' next polar expedition cruise vessel, the 'National Geographic Resolution', was towed in to the dock hall at Ulstein Verft.
The hull arrived at Ulstein Verft on 22 October. Since then, electrical work and safety measures have been undertaken. Having been positioned now in the dock hall, the next stages of the construction project will be to continue the electrical work, as well as tasks such as insulation, piping, steel outfitting and installations.
The dock hall was completed in 2002, and secures a dry and controlled climate in the shipbuilding projects. The dock has a total length of 225 metres, of which the dock hall has a length of 110 metres. The dock hall gate is 34 metres wide. The two main cranes inside the dock hall can perform tandem lifts of totally 500 tonnes.
Sven Lindblad is president and CEO at Lindblad Expeditions. He states that: “We were intrigued with the technology of the X-BOW®. That was our primary consideration.” Read his story here.
