The Royal Institution of Naval Architects Ice Class Vessels


4- 5 July 2012, London, UK Second Notice


Recent years have seen a large increase in the number of vessels operating in polar and low temperature environments. This includes a broad range of vessel type; tankers, bulkcarries, LNG, container ships, multi-purpose ships, cruise ships and offshore support vessels. Compliance with just the basic ice class rules and regulations may not be sufficient for safe and effective ship operation in these environments.


There are vast oil and gas resources around Siberia in the Barents and Kara sea as well as in the Alaskan Chukchi Sea. The receding ice in the Northern Sea Route and North West Passage offers new marine transportation options between the two major oceans and Europe, North America and Asia.


Vessels of any kind operating in ice-infested waters and low temperatures are exposed to a number of unique demands. Operation in first- and multi-year ice adds uncommon loads and forces to hull, propulsion system and appendages and calls for suitable built. Extremely low temperatures, bad weather and low visibility affect the ship and the crew in a multitude of ways, including materials, machinery, operational process and human factors.

RINA invites classifications societies, shipyards, operators, surveyors and designers and those with an interest in the full of possibilities operation in ice, to submit papers on: - ICE / Polar Classification - Structural design and equipment selection - Materials, welding and coatings - Propulsion and machinery systems - Cargo & ship systems adaptation - Ice accretion and de-icing arrangements - Winterization - Safety & environmental systems consideration - Crew consideration / human factors - Rescue and evacuation in remote and extreme conditions - New Arctic shipping routes
