Arctic Passion News #19 (1/2020)

At Aker Arctic, we work with icebreaking ships. Our mission is to provide high-quality icebreaking ship designs and various services to streamline the construction projects of these ships.

Therefore, we follow with high interest the development of global environmental conditions, especially in respect of ice circumstances. It is well known that climate change is affecting ice conditions, mostly making shipping and sea operations easier in such areas where waters freeze.
