Aker Arctic Ship Design, Engineering, Consulting and Testing Services for Ice-Going Ships

Aker Arctic

Aker Arctic specialises in development, design, engineering, consulting and testing services for ice-going vessels, icebreakers, and Antarctic and Polar cruise vessels.

Services for Arctic and Antarctic shipping vessels

Ships are designed, tested, and supervised, by Aker Arctic. The company also markets and sells complete ice-going vessel projects.

Aker Arctic offers professional consultancy services for ice-going ship designs, using its technological and design expertise to reduce costs for shipowners and shipyards. The company also provides concept and classification designs, as well as port engineering and vessel construction support.

Aker Arctic supplies a new contracting service for shipbuilders, which entails ordering and delivering special components and systems from selected partners.

Ship design and documentation for IMO code compliance

The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) new code for ships operating in polar waters (Polar Code) comes into force in 2017. Ships must comply with the Polar Code’s new certificates, technical requirements and procedures before entering Polar waters.

Aker Arctic provides ship design, crew training and documentation services to assist ship owners and operators in complying with the various specifications of the Polar Code.

One of the code’s requirements is that all ships must have a Polar Water Operations Manual (PWOM) on-board. The company can prepare and adapt a basic manual to meet the requirements for each specific vessel.

Testing and ice management

Aker Arctic offers testing services for ice and open water models, offshore structures, and design concepts, as well as evaluations and studies of environmental conditions, design criteria and transport.

It provides cold environment technology, such as special ice simulators for ice-breaking and offshore operations, as well as carries out ice management, loading and off-loading for ports and rigs.
