BRITISH ANTARCTIC SURVEY

The Brtish Antarcticv Survey has been sending ships into the Antarctic ice for many years and ordinarily they would not have a place on this site, however some time ago they purchased the Norwegian ship Polar Queen which is capable of carrying out a variety of commercial activities. The British Antarctic Survey is a part of the Natural Environmental Research Council, which is based in Barry, South Wales. No it's not! It has been pointed out to me that the British Antarctic Survey moved long ago to Cambridge, and apparently NERC ships dock in Southampton.

A while ago the media informed us that there will be a new polar research ship brought into service in 2019. We do not know whether this ship will join the Ernest Shackleton in the commercial market.

Updated 23rd October 2015.
