The trials of the new Finnish multipurpose icebreaker
Botnica were performed on the northern Gulf of Bothnia.
The main part of this paper consists of the results from
the ice trials and their analysis. The results are
compared with the results obtained in the ice model tests
performed for the ship during the project phase. The ice
capability of the ship is compared with the data
published from other icebreakers. In the beginning of the
paper, the ship and her propulsion system are also
briefly introduced, and the measuring system onboard as
well as the ice measurements are described.
