Abstract : Ice can build up rapidly on ships operating in cold climates, decreasing ship stability, equipment performance, and personnel safety, and increasing the resource allocation required to reduce the ice burden. With the requirement for the Royal Canadian Navy to patrol the Arctic Ocean, future Arctic Offshore Patrol Vessels, AOPS, will require technology for reducing the effects of icing events. This letter reviews the current state of the art in commercially available ice reduction coating systems.
