ACI’s 7th Arctic Shipping Summit 2015 will be focused on discussing the practical solutions necessary for the ship owners to decide whether they should invest in utilising the Northern Sea Route. The meeting will provide updates on key developments and regulations in the Arctic, as well as present expert views on possible future advances in governing the transport routes.

The conference will also address how to overcome the operational challenges that exist while entering the region. These include navigation, communications, risk and safety management, search and rescue, vessel design and crew training. The meeting will provide an outlook for the recent innovations in ice class vessel design as well as updates on ice breaker technology.
