Improving operational safety during icebreaker operations

Magnus Boström, Cecilia Österman
2016 WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs (JoMA)  
The study presented in this paper aims at investigating what safety measures that can be taken to improve the operational safety during icebreaker operations in the Baltic Sea.  ...  The results, which are based on data collected through individual interviews and questionnaires, indicate several possible improvements.  ...  Conclusions The result of this study, as it was designed, shows that there are several ways that the operational safety during icebreaker operations can be improved.  ...

IMPROVING THE OPERABILITY OF REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLES

A.J. Woods, J.D. Penrose, A.J. Duncan, R. Koch, D. Clark
1998 The APPEA Journal  
The extent to which ROVs can replace diver-based operations depends significantly on ROV capacity and the relative costs of mobilising and implementing the two modes of underwater operation.  ...  Significant improvement in pilot performance of selected maintenance-type tasks has been achieved by the use of a purpose built underwater stereoscopic video camera and associated ship-based stereoscopic  ...  Two systems (one developed and the other in development) offer opportunities to improve the operability of ROVs.  ...
