Catalog excerpts

Latitude brings leeway Operating sea going vessels in ice has been a necessity for many countries who's territories lie North of Latitude 66° 33' 44" (the Arctic Circle). Access to sea going ports in these areas is often only possible with the use of ice-breaking vessels that pave the way for transit of ice class vessels (with varying degrees of ice readiness depending on class). To a lesser extent, operations in the Antarctic region have also been undertaken for many years, but these have been limited to international research rather than commercial trade. A number of factors now make...

Specialist corrosion protection The vast majority of vessels trading globally (Including those trading in ice conditions) are node from grades of mild steel, which for many decades has been dm materia! of choice duo to It being strong, relatively Inexpensive and more durable than any other mainstream construction material. However, one of the main draw backs of steel is that it corrodes, and the marine environment is one of the most aggressive for the corrosion of steel. Steel vessels are generally designed and built to last 25 years to 40 years meaning that the integrity of the hull and...

Portraying a good image does not necessarily say 'protecting the environment’, but a well maintained vessel, that is rust free and with coatings intact does give the image of a professional, responsible and safety conscious operator. Good quality anticorrosives help preserve the condition of the hull but it is good quality cosmetic finishes that help to display the image of a responsible and professional owner operating high specification, well designed vessels. Pristine image The Arctic environment Is a pristine ecological environment, one of the last to be relatively untouched by man, and...

Fouling control Fouling control for vessels trading in ice is often overlooked due to a common misunderstanding that the fouling challenge in cold water or ice climates is very low and so there is no need for protection. Hull    Sea Chest However, this is not strictly the case, the challenge is different, but it is still there. Even in arctic environments there is still a risk of fouling on poorly protected vessels which may impact on the fuel consumption of the vessel. Year round operation in ice covered polar waters Abrasion resistant low friction ice coating No antifouling system...

Keeping you ahead of legal requirements For vessels trading year round in ice-covered polar waters, the only requirement as recommended by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) is to protect niche areas of the hull with a compliant AFS Convention coating. The main sections of the underwater hull only need protection from the ice using an abrasion resistant low friction ice coating. For vessels with intermittent operations in ice covered polar waters the recommendation is that for vertical sides above the bilge keel an antifouling coating of 75microns is needed to protect hull when...
