Station-keeping trials were undertaken in drifting ice in the Bay of Bothnia with two anchor handling supply vessels; Magne Viking and Tor Viking. This paper describes test scenarios which were performed with Magne Viking in moored, Dynamic Positioning and transit modes. An overview of the tests performed during the trials is presented, outlining the range of environmental and operational parameters. Examples of specific ice interaction scenarios are highlighted with illustrative measurement data providing observational insight into the performance and processes.
