ICE EFFECTS AND SHIP PERFORMANCES DATA GATHERING SYSTEM ON BOARD THE ICEBREAKING BULK CARRIER M.V. ARCTIC

The decision to provide a permanently installed instrumentation system aboard the ice strengthened cargo vessel M.V. Arctic and to gather ice performance data over a number of arctic shipping seasons, was taken by Transport Canada in 1977. This paper describes the evolution of the scientific evaluation program, the development, details and installation in the ship of an instrumentation system, the data collection undertaken over two operating Arctic seasons and the results of data analysis achieved to this point in the 5 year program. The paper also reports on the operational experiences of the ship and its crew with respect to equipment reliability in Arctic service.
