Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

The new German research vessel SONNE underwent a series of test cruises before her commissioning on the 17. 11. 2014. Test cruise SONNE-P5 was planned to test the hydro-acoustic systems and to test the handling and operation of equipment which is deployed by the 18mm deep sea wire and by the 18mm glass fiber/coaxial hybrid cable in relatively deep water in the vicinity of the North Sea. In consequence two areas in the Faroese EEZ were chosen at the Wyville Thomson Ridge (water depth up to 1000m) and the continental slope north east of the Faroese Islands (water depth max. 3000m). The cruise started in Aberdeen and led directly to the area of the Wyville Thomson Ridge. Du to extremely bad wether we only managed to work for 12 hours. A worse weather forecast led to the decision to steam back to the German Bight where we made some more test near Helgoland. The cruise ended on the 9. 10. in Bremerhaven.
