ship structure

CHAPTER SUMMARY
Chapter 3 includes provisions to ensure that the material and scantlings of ships with or without ice strengthening retain their structural integrity under certain environmental loads and conditions. This chapter seeks to provide assurance that a ship’s structure is suitable for the environmental conditions (e.g. ice loads and temperature) by requiring that a ship’s design plan be made to a recognized standard, such as the Polar Class or the Finnish-Swedish (Baltic) classes, and that materials be suitable if the vessel operate at low temperatures. These are clearly set out in the Chapter 3 wording below, and in the Part 1B Additional Guidance.

pwom

CHAPTER SUMMARY
Chapter 2 describes content to be included in the Polar Water Operational Manual (PWOM), a mandatory ship-specific document designed to support decision making through the identification of procedures for operations under routine and emergency conditions. The PWOM must contain references to methodologies used to determine capabilities and limitations of a vessel in ice. The Regulations require that vessels develop and carry a PWOM on board, and require that a variety of risk-based procedures are to be taken into consideration. These are clearly set out in the Chapter 2 wording below, and in the Part 1B Additional Guidance.

Session III (a): Sources: origin of plastic both within and outside the Arctic (e.g. land-sourced pollution, fisheries, shipping, industry, tourism/recreation...).

  • Sources of marine litter (2 cause studies: e.g. Holland, case study and a PP representative)
  • Discussions and inputs from participants including potential recommendations (to feed into Session IV).

Session III (b): Impacts:

  • Impact of marine litter (invited expert and 1-2 case studies from a PP representative)
  • Discussions and inputs from participants including potential recommendations (to feed into Session IV).

Session III (c): Pathways and distribution:

  • Pathways and distribution of marine litter invited expert and 1-2 case studies from a PP representative)
  • Discussions and inputs from participants including potential recommendations (to feed into Session IV).

Session III (c): Response:

  • Response/cleanup (e.g. Regional actions against marine litter HELCOM, OSPAR, case study from a PP representative)
  • Discussions and inputs from participants including potential recommendations (to feed into Session IV).

Expected outcome:

  • Summary Workshop report
  • Inputs and next steps for the development of the desktop study
