This equipment will be deployed on a polar vessel in the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic fleet, joining National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion, currently in operation, and National Geographic Endurance.
This agreement confirms our position as a recognized supplier of special handling equipment for harsh environments. As a part of the delivery, Aukra Maritime will supply roof mounted travelling cranes (RTC Cranes) for handling of Zodiac inflatable boats.
Our custom-made handling system can deploy and retrieve Zodiacs easily, giving passengers the unique possibilities of accessing local attractions in areas not accessible via larger vessels.
At Aukra Maritime, we are passionate about creating solutions that are safe and durable, and our products are designed to operate in extreme conditions, with long life expectancy and low maintenance costs.
