    Abstract

    In the presentation the main environmental effects of wintertime shipping is addressed. Results from ac-cident statistics analysis in the Baltic Sea is used as a baseline for evaluating the risks in shipping traffic. One way to reduce the emissions is to have an efficient system for ship routing. In the presentation the system used in the Baltic Sea is presented as an example of an operational fleet management tool that uses modern technology (satellite images and AIS position information) to help the icebreakers organise their assistance operations and advise the ships in an optimal way.
