In this issue, we present our completely new Arctic LNG carrier, in addition to many other topics relevant to today’s icebreaking practices. Our main target is to continue the successful development of new ships, with particular focus on reducing energy consumption and making substantial improvements regarding emission targets. For icebreaking ships, these are no easy tasks, but our mission is to rise to the challenge and to design such vessels for their owners’ use and benefit.
