 Offshore Vessel Operations in Ice and/or Severe Sub-Zero Temperatures First Edition 2014
Guidance to operators and charterers of offshore support vessels employed for use in areas impacted by ice or severe sub-zero temperatures with the aim of encouraging high standards of safety and environmental protection for those operating in Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions.
