Winterization Requirements (DES017)
Course Objectives and Benefits
As oil exports from Arctic regions become increasingly viable, the interest in ice-classed tankers and LNG carriers has been steadily rising. Working with industry, ABS developed a comprehensive Guide for Vessels Operating in Low Temperature Environments. This addresses the unique demands imposed on vessels and their equipment operating in low temperature regions. The Guide encompasses special vessel design and operating considerations as well as issues related to personnel safety and training. It is intended that participants of this course gain an understanding of the optional requirements for vessels to be eligible for a special class notation CCO-HR(TEMP)+ associated with the requirements in the Guide.
