Project Background

As more of the Arctic waters become navigable due to global warming, ship traffic in the Arctic regions is increasing.

However, there are significant operational challenges in the Arctic.

As a result, recent years have seen a sharp rise in marine casualties.

Project Objectives and Methodology

SEDNA will test the outputs of the project in a variety of ways:

Usability testing in a simulated Arctic ship environment (Safe Arctic Bridge)

Field testing on real Arctic-going vessels (anti-icing coating)

End-user demonstration (Arctic Voyage Optimiser)

Test case study for a vessel in the Russian Arctic (Design Framework)
