The modern, unique research vessel r/v IMOR, functioning as a floating multipurpose oceanographic research laboratory, was commissioned in September 2006. She is designed to realise complex, highly specialised research services, basing on state of the art investigation techniques.

The investment was co-financed by the European Commission from the ERDF Operational Programme “Improvement of Competitiveness of Enterprises”, Action 1.4.
