MODIFIED VESSELS SHOW PROMISE FOR ARCTIC OFFSHORE WORK

Powerful new icebreaking vessels that are planned for exploration and drilling operations in the United States and Canadian Arctic offshore areas are highlighted. These vessels will be designed to icebreaker standards equivalent to between Arctic Class 6 and 10, allowing operations to proceed for part or all of the winter season. Modifications to high-powered Arctic-class vessels will extend their capabilities beyond that solely of exploration support, creating the primary use for these vessels in drilling.
