Finnish ice class rules' engine output requirement for existing vessels reaching age 20 (revised version)

This is a reminder to owners and managers of vessels with DNV GL/DNV ice class Ice(1A), Ice(1A*) or Ice(1A*F) or GL ice class E3 or E4. The Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) introduced a retroactive engine output requirement in 2002 for ships whose keel was either laid or a similar stage of construction before 1 September 2003. To retain the equivalent Finnish ice class (e.g. for operation in the Baltic Sea), the ship must comply with the retroactive requirement on 1 January of the year when 20 years have elapsed since the year the ship was delivered.
