Finland-based Aker Arctic has joined a new EU-funded project to address improved safety and efficiency in Arctic ship operations.

A consortium of 13 research organisations and industrial partners from six countries launched the joint development project SEDNA at the beginning of June 2017.

Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, the project is set to develop an innovative and integrated risk-based approach to safe Arctic navigation, ship design and maritime operations, to enable European maritime interests to fully embrace the Arctic’s growing shipping opportunities, while safeguarding its natural environment.

The three-year project focuses on the main topics including the modern bridge systems with state of the art tools, improvement in voyage planning incorporating data transfer and big data utilisation, research on the anti-icing solutions, safety assessment of low flash point fuels as well as risk-based methodology in the design and operation for ice-going vessels.

“This international development project provides a good platform to further improve the areas in safety and efficiency of the designs for the arctic shipping and navigation,” Reko-Antti Suojanen, Managing Director of Aker Arctic Technology, said.
