Operations in ice and harsh environments place challenging demands on a vessel’s propulsion system and hull structure. Building on our experience in icebreaker and Arctic ship design, as well as decades of full-scale trials and measurements, Aker Arctic brings our expertise to bear on delivering complete propulsion packages and hull stress monitoring systems. We share our knowledge and highlight the benefits of these systems during our webinar.
In this webinar, Kari Laukia, Head of Equipment Business at Aker Arctic, presents the concept of ordering the propulsion package delivery from the designer of an ice going vessel. We discuss solutions that introduce efficiencies and reduce costs to shipyards, while providing safe, reliable, and efficient equipment for the operator.
In this webinar, Rob Hindley, Head of Machinery & Structural Design at Aker Arctic presents how hull stress measurements can be used to evaluate the safety level of ships operating in ice. Rob will present an overview of approaches to ice load monitoring and how these are integrated with real-time feedback to the operator on the bridge of a vessel operating in ice. Use of such systems in the context of the regulatory framework and Polar Code will also be discussed.
