Arctic research and development projects
Some of our research and development projects include:
- COSSARC – Concept selection for Arctic shipping; internal project developing a software tool to assist shipping companies with assessing the feasibility of Arctic shipping routes
- New Recommended Practice (RP) "Arctic Offshore Design Loads and Load Effects".
The purpose of the RP is to assist designers and offshore engineering specialists in estimating ice loads and ice load effects. It provides guidance on how to use ISO 19906 in Arctic offshore engineering, for example on how to obtain "appropriate design loads" from sea ice based on the information provided in ISO 19906
- Update of the ISO 19906 Arctic Offshore Structures where DNV GL participates in several technical panels
DNV GL is contributing in three technical panels for update of the standard, the panels for reliability, ice loads and floating structures
- Update of NORSOK N-003 action and action effects on icebergs, sea ice, icing and snow
- Development of an ISO standard for Emergency Response Planning, where DNV GL participates actively
- Development of an ISO standard for Arctic metocean, ice and seabed data, where DNV GL participates on snow and ice accretion.
