At almost 183 meters, Rev Ocean is the largest and most advanced research and shipping vessel ever built. Designed by the Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke, the boat will be used to study the health of our seas and clean up the oceans because a yacht can also have a different vocation from luxury.
We are used to thinking of the yacht as a luxury boat for the holidays of the rich of the world with services aboard a thousand and one nights. But for the Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke, a yacht can also have another vocation. This is the case of Rev Ocean, the largest and most advanced research and expedition vessel in the world that cuts through the seas to clean them up. Rev is precisely for Research Expedition Vessel and is a boat that will carry around 55 scientists around to study the health of our seas and clean up the oceans.
At almost 183 meters long, Rev Ocean is the largest and most advanced research and shipping vessel ever built.On Rev Ocean will travel 55 scientists who will be able to use instrumentation on board such as scientific trawls, sonar systems, laboratories, auditoriums and classrooms, moonpools, AUVs and submarines, a ROV with a capacity of 6000 meters deep and advanced communication equipment.
In addition there will also be a crew of 35 people who will work hard to make the ship work at its best. Oystein Mikelborg, director of ocean operations at REV, said: “REV Ocean will be equipped to carry out missions covering the entire marine ecosystem.
It will be used by scientists and innovators for” solution-oriented “research that explores issues such as impact of CO2 emissions on the ocean, plastic pollution and unsustainable fishing.
Rev Ocean is also the not-for-profit company founded and financed by the Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke : “REV Ocean will work to fill critical knowledge gaps, develop innovative solutions and bridge the scientific, commercial and political sectors to achieve positive change Taking on the role of ocean pioneers, the goal is to create a positive and measurable impact, to provide a path for others to follow and motivate the next generation of oceanic leaders Our vision to guarantee – One Healthy Ocean – is the central mantra of ‘entire organization “
