With a group of scientists and technicians from the National Institute of Research and Fisheries Development (INIDEP), the BIP Víctor Angelescuarrived Monday at the port of Buenos Aires.

"We began a new phase in marine research in Argentina, incorporating a ship with cutting-edge technology at world level," said INIDEP director, Dr. Otto Wöhler.

"The vessel Víctor Angelescu is incorporated to INIDEP fleet to lead oceanographic, fishing and environmental studies, together with the participation of other national and foreign institutions, strengthening the existing cooperation ties," he added.

The BIP is 52.8 metres in length and the deck equipment includes fishing winches and winches to handle scientific instruments; equipment consisting of scientific echo sound waves for the detection of marine organisms, multi-beam echo sounder for ocean floor mapping, state-of-the-art oceanographic equipment, uncontaminated sea water circulation circuit, meteorological station, ROV, equipment for chemical analysis of seawater, of phytoplankton and biological equipment, among others.

Through an internal consultation carried out in the INIDEP, the name Dr. Víctor Angelescu was chosen to baptize the new vessel, in homage to the Romanian researcher, who was one of the founders of the Institute of Marine Biology (IBM), on whose basis INIDEP was founded.

"All this equipment will open many doors. It is a boat that has the peculiarity of having been designed jointly between the shipyard and INIDEP Technical Commission, who will be their own users so it contains a series of characteristics that make it very special," commented a few weeks ago Minister of Agroindustry of the Nation Ricardo Buryaile.

The new research vessel was built in Astilleros Armon Vigo, in Galicia, Spain.
