Challenges in Arctic Conditions
Arctic exploration holds high risks due to extreme weather conditions and limited navigational and support infrastructure. Sea spray icing on arctic oil and gas rigs or maritime vessels threatens operations by blocking essential equipment, and compromises structural stability due to ice build-up. Personnel safety is jeopardized as the crew are more prone to slipping, fatigue and hypothermia.
