    Abstract

    The traffic volumes in arctic waters are expected to increase rapidly in forthcoming years. A new fleet of oil and LNG carriers with high ice-class is needed for the transportation. One beneficial solution is to use independently icebreaking vessels equipped with high ice-class Azipod units. Accumulated experience of ice-going ships with Azipod propulsion has proven its efficiency and reliability. This paper summarise experience of high ice class Azipod propulsion and give an overview to some ice load measurement results.
