Where's the best location for an interview?

On a zodiac overlooking Lilliehöökbreen Glacier of course!

We are thrilled to share the official documentary from the ARCSAR Mass Rescue Live Exercise.

ARCSAR is an EU-funded project, set up to establish the first formal security and preparedness network for the Arctic and the North Atlantic.

For four days participants carried out different exercises, held lectures, and tested new technology. On the final day, a live scenario exercise took place, an exercise with an onboard fire and mass evacuation.

The drill which took place in late August 2022 involved a fire onboard MS Quest, with a rescue operation from the Norwegian Coast Guard vessel Barentshav with SAR Queen helicopter from 330 Squadron, Banak - Norway.
