Icebreaker Oden


The Swedish icebreaker Oden has served as a research vessel for expeditions to polar regions, in both Arctic and Antarctic waters, since 1991. Oden’s extensive flexibility, with research containers, scientific laboratories, and deep ocean winches, enables researchers in many different disciplines to use the vessel based on their needs. Navigational and meteorological data are collected continuously during research expeditions, stored on the vessel’s computer servers, and made available to researchers during and after the expedition.
