THE DEVELOPMENT OF TUGS FOR OPERATIONS IN THE CANADIAN WESTERN ARCTIC

The Beaufort Sea, the area with which this paper is concerned, presents a harsh and unfriendly environment for vessel operations. The thinking underlying the design of an anchor-handling, survey/offshore supply vessel intended specifically for this environment is examined. The ice conditions that confront vessels operating in the Beaufort Sea are to some extent also discussed.
