R/V Thuwal arrives at KAUST :)


King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) has recently acquired Saudi Arabia's first research vessel, the R/V Thuwal.

This vessel will help bolster innovative research and knowledge of this largely unexplored resource at our doorstep, shared President Jean-Lou Chameau. Our scientists and students are now equipped to explore the Red Sea aboard the R/V Thuwal with greater flexibility and access. This new tool will accelerate discoveries in marine science research, enhance teaching opportunities, and strengthen partnerships with industry, governments, and academia.
