Polarsyssel is an Ice Class B vessel and can accommodate 30 people. The ship is 88.5 meters long and 17.6 meters wide. The deck area is 850 square meters with a modular helideck.

The ship is equipped with a fire fighting unit, an emergency oil recovery system, a dynamic-positioning system (DP2) for optimal position keeping during operations, refueling system for Jet A-1 fuel, and a night vision detection system for identifying people, oil, and ice in the dark. On board there is a twin-jet rescue boat as well as two work, search, and rescue boats.

Earlier this month, Iceland’s Fafnir Offshore has secured a long term contract for the platform supply vessel, under which it will operate six months a year for the Governor of Svalbard for a period of six years.

The vessel will, in addition to servicing Spitsbergen, patrol, prevent pollution, conduct rescue services, and monitor environmental developments in the Svalbard archipelago, Bear Island, and Hopen.

‘Polarsyssel’ is Iceland’s first platform supply vessel and it is the first vessel of the Havyard 832 L WE (Wave Edition) design.
