The Prince Madog is able to mobilise quickly for a rapid response or opportunistic access to events yet can support longer experiments and surveys when required. She mainly operates within UK waters and is capable of working from close inshore to the shelf edge. Laboratory spaces can be reconfigured to suit each cruise's objectives and specialist equipment easily fitted as required.RV Prince Madog is owned and operated through P&O Maritime Ocean Services (POMOS), a joint venture between the University of Wales, Bangor (UWB) and P&O Maritime
