Loppa Legeskyssbåter’s ambulance vessel M.W Asheim operates under harsh weather conditions in northern Norway. When the roads are closed and no aircraft or helicopter can fly due to the weather, M.W Asheim is the only ambulance resource who can transport acute patients from Alta to Hammerfest. This happens every winter. M.W Asheim is 18 meters long and 6 meters wide. It can operate under harsh conditions with a maximum speed of 23.7 knots.
