MVP300 Selected for New Chinese Icebreaker

The Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC) has chosen AML’s Moving Vessel Profiler as the underway profiling system for their new icebreaker, Xuelong 2. “We chose MVP300 to collect high density real-time CTD profiles without stopping the vessel. The MVP system also allows us to collect other scientific data such as Chlorophyll A, Dissolved Oxygen, and Turbidity. We will achieve better quality data and save valuable vessel time,” said Project Director Shuoren Wang.

With numerous expedition objectives ranging from climate change research to natural resource studies, the MVP will be a critical system in support of realizing the icebreaker’s mandate. “Xuelong 2 is equipped with state-of-the-art ocean scientific research equipment“ noted Mr. Wang.

This is the second contract for the deep water, underway profiler MVP300 secured through AML’s local agent, Laurel Technologies Company of Hong Kong, within the last four months. The solution to be supplied to PRIC includes the MVP, instrumentation, installation, and training services.
