The Crew

 [Español]        [Français]

Having sailed for 25 years and having closely studie the Arctic for 15 years, Pierre Sauvadet decided in 2003 to go ahead and construct his own logistic platform. The main idea behind this was : at a time of miniaturization and high level of reliability in small machinery, it is now possible to build a boat which will complement efficiently the large icebreakers by extending their limits for detailed arctic observation. 

Pierre main interest is to design and validate the best possible autonomous observation platform to help to better understand the Arctic world.

This private and independent project has been inspired by Frijoft Nansen who methodically explored the Arctic Ocean.
