Abstract

Planning iceberg management activities for faciliti es located in bergy waters is an important aspect of the ice management process. When an iceberg has been identified as a possible threat to offshore facilities, the offshore inst allation manager (OIM) mu st decide which vessel should be tasked to carry-out towing operation s, the direction to tow and the amount of bollard pull to apply, given the existing set of environmental and operational conditions. If several icebergs are considered threats, plan ning management strategies can be difficult without some sort of aid. This paper gives an overview of iceberg management planning software developed to improve the effectiven ess of iceberg towing operations and reduce the possibility of downtime for a facility. Results of bench-tes ting are presented and future development plans indicated.
