EXPERIENCES WITH THE LUNNI-CLASS TANKER'S PERFORMANCE IN ICE
The Lunni-class was designed as an icebreaking oil tanker to be operated independently in the normal ice conditions prevailing in the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic. Experience has shown that the icebreaking capacity of the ships was approximately the same as predicted. It has been seen that the ship can operate without icebreaker assistance in ice conditions typical of the Gulf of Bothnia. The experience of the design and operating of The Lunni-class ships has shown that the technoclogy exists for designing ships for given operations in given ice conditions.
