Fifty years of Icebreaking Solutions
Aker Arctic is designing a polar research icebreaker for the Chinese Polar Research Institute
With the country’s reputation as a centre of excellence for innovation and its northern most territories reaching the Arctic Circle, Finland has successfully combined its knowledge based economy with its desire to continue to develop its maritime sector.
“We have been developing and designing icebreakers and other vessels for more than 50 years,” says Mikko Niini, Managing Director of AARC. “Our third-generation ice model testing facility is the most advanced in the world and in addition to model and full scale testing services, we offer consulting, design and engineering services, training and services associated with technologies used in sub-zero conditions.”
Currently, Aker Arctic is designing new Polar icebreakers for the Canadian Coast Guard, a polar research icebreaker for the Chinese Polar Research Institute and the next generation icebreaker for the Government of Finland.
