Explanation:
Translation of the phrase is not too straight. They mean that
To find (people, travellers, etc.) a Norwegian vessel of bark type was sent.
OR
For a mission to find (people, expedition etc.) Norwegians equipped and sent a bark (barque).

The complete sense of the phrase: Somebody (or ...bodies) were lost in an expedition. To investigate the place where the expedition stays (or died) a Norwegian vessel (of a specific type for navigation in North Sea) was equipped and sent for this mission.
Indeed, the sense of the phrase yields that not, say Russians, but namely Norwegians sent that vessel.
Hope you got the right sense of the phrase.
Yours,
Dr. Tagir S. Tagirov.
