Viking Supply Ships informed that the company has been elected as a winner of this year’s “Spotlight on Arctic Technology” award at the Arctic Technology conference in Copenhagen. During the winter of 2013, Viking Supply Ships performed Ice-trials of our Icebreaker Loke Viking-class Ice 1A AHTS. The tests showed that the vessel performed good at ice-breaking, ridge penetration, maneuvering and channel clearing. Results showed that the Loke Viking class' performance in light/moderate ice conditions is at the same level as that of Arctic purpose built supply Ice-breakers. Viking Supply Ships has, during the last 15-20 years spent large resources on improving our competence and expertise within arctic offshore, in order to provide our clients with even better services. As a company, we are therefore very honored and happy for this acknowledgment. The award will be presented at 17:15 hours on Monday 23rd March, during the ATC on Ice Reception in Congress Halls A1/A2 at the Comwell Convention Center (Bella Center) in Copenhagen.
