Svalbard Vault is a seed bank with the world's biggest collection of seeds. It is designed to withstand wars and natural disasters in order to safeguard the huge range of seeds for future generations' needs. It is in a remote Arctic location, and the below freezing temperatures help to preserve the millions of stored seeds.

A telephone message which talked of the Component drops gave directions to assemble the drop parts and take to the Svalbard Vault. We do not know the reason for this, or if there is even anything at this location that is relevant to OTP22; this is not confirmed as a drop location yet. It is currently unknown whether it is even possible to reach the vault without Norwegian Government permission, as they own and run the vault.
