NEPTUNE

Could expedition cruise vessels be an oil spill response asset in the Arctic?

Objective

The NEPTUNE project aims at investigating if expedition cruise vessels can be utilized as a resource in Arctic oil spill preparedness and response, what kind of possibilities that resource could offer, and what could limit the inclusion of these vessels as assets. Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) is a partner in the project.

Activities

The project has collected data through a questionnaire and conducted two tabletop exercises with AECO. The project will develop a report on its findings.
