Baltic Ice Report

Please kindly find attached latest Baltic Ice Reports

There  are  no considerable changes in ice conditions since our latest ice report yet. However, taking into account weather forecast for next few  days  with  low  air  temperatures  up  to  -10…-18C which will increase  ice  formation, Harbour Master has ordered first formal step of  ice  restrictions at Ust-Luga port (in case of ice thickness 10-15 cm):

Since 16.02.2017:
– tug + barge tandems will not be allowed to navigate in ice;
– vessels without ice class – will be allowed to navigate in ice under icebreakers assistance only;
– vessels having ice class (Ice 1 / 1D or higher) – will be allowed to navigate    in    ice    by    own    power    following icebreakers permission/recommendations.

FYI: Ice restrictions in other ports still remain unchanged.
