WP5 - Ice Management and Design Philosophy

Goals:

The primary goal of WP5 is to establish a design philosophy that ensures the fulfilment of the standard design requirements for Arctic offshore structures without being overly conservative. The established philosophy shall consider use of ice management means such as icebreakers, iceberg towing vessels, ice surveillance (detection, tracking and forecasting) and disconnection/reconnection capabilities of moored floating structures.

Background:

Ice Management is defined as the sum of all activities in  which the objective is to reduce or avoid actions from any kind of ice features. In order to incorporate such activities in the design, there is a need for a framework that allows proper design documentation pertaining to the safety of the Arctic offshore structures supported by ice management operations.
