Origin of Name
In Norwegian, Fram means "to go forward." The legendary Norwegian explorers, Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen, set numerous records in the research vessel, Fram, during their Arctic and Antarctic expeditions in the 1890s. The Fram featured a uniquely designed icebreaking hull that was lifted as the ice closed around it, thereby floating above the crushing forces of the ice pack. The shape of this hull is abstractly illustrated in our logo.
The concept of moving forward with technology captures the innovative spirit of Fram Exploration and its employees.
