Royal Danish Navy

On a space-available condition research projects have the possibility to use Royal Danish Navy´s coastguard vessels operating in Greenland waters as platform for their project activities.

At any time, one vessel and two cutters operate in Greenland waters. The coast guard Thetis-class vessels operate normally in East Greenland waters and the Agdlek-class cutters in West Greenland waters.

Royal Danish Navy operates four ocean patrol vessels of the Thetis-class:
F357 THETIS 
F358 TRITON 
F359 VÆDDEREN 
F360 HVIDBJØRNEN

... and three ocean patrol cutters of the Agdlek-class:
Y386 AGDLEK 
Y387 AGPA 
Y388 TULUGAQ
