Independent ice navigation and the icebreaker-escorted navigation of large tankers are concepts that may be relatively new to many tanker owners and charterers. This publication provides guidance to chartering and vetting groups on the safe operation of tankers in areas affected by seasonal first-year ice. It is primarily aimed at the use of low, or no, ice class tankers, from 50,000 tonnes deadweight upwards, likely to encounter first-year ice.
