916 Antartic Aurora

Antartic Aurora, designated ST-156L from Skipsteknisk AS, is a longliner with diesel electric propulsion. The vessel is specially designed for lining through moonpool in centreline, to extend the time of fishing operations under severe weather conditions, and with high maneuverability and station keeping capabilities.

It is designed for operating in Antarctic during the Austral Summer months. Because of this operating profile, the vessel must comply with the new international code for non-SOLAS ships operating in polar waters.
