FLOATING ICE INDUCED SHIP CASUALTIES
Author : Nataliya Marchenko
It is very important to analyze sea-ice-induced ship casualties because transport activity at high latitudes is growing. A significant search is underway for an Arctic alternative to the southern (Suez) route from Europe to Asia. However, despite global warming and forecasts of an ice-free Arctic, ice conditions are still rather difficult. The Vilkitsky Strait was closed by ice for almost the entire navigation season 2013. Several accidents occurred, including the rupture of a tanker by an ice floe, nipping and overwintering last year. The frequency of ship casualties in the Polar regions is much smaller than in the world ocean.
