25% of the known oil and gas reserves are in the arctic regions. Ships in operation in these environments have to be adequately heated. To make it possible to perform the related pumping and processing in the predominantly extremely low temperatures, pipes and equipment, instruments and switch cabinets must be safely heated. Heaters on steps and walkways ensure safe working conditions.

Ships designed for use in the arctic environment has to be equipped with de-ice systems to keep:

• Maintain the main functions of the ship

• Manoeuvrability

• Stability related to icing

• Crew safety (rafts, life boats, gangways etc)
