North Sea Facilities

The North Sea requires besides a research vessel, specialised equipment for scientific research. Some of the equipment is developed by the in-house marine technology department but most of the North Sea instruments are provided by the National Marine Facility (NMF), a diverse pool of seagoing equipment for the marine science community in the Netherlands.
