Visit to Helsinki
In late July Ilkka Saisto from Aker Arctic hosted a visit from Professor Kwang Leong Choy and Professor Giles Thomas to the Finnish icebreaker Polaris in order to establish a greater understanding of the different ship surfaces for the work on anti-icing technologies. Built in 2016 Polaris is operated by the state-owned icebreaker operator Arctia.
