MANDATORY WINTER NAVIGATION INFORMATION ON

SEA WATER COOLING TYPES

CANADIAN REGULATIONS CONCERNING SHIPS OPERATING IN ICE‐COVERED WATERS

Enforcement of the following requirement for ships transiting West of Les Escoumins pilot station will be in effect as of:

December 17, 2013

The Gulf of St‐Lawrence and the St‐Lawrence River provide unique conditions for navigation during winter months.

Canadian regulations require that all vessels navigating in ice be equipped with a system to prevent icing and choking of sea chests and to maintain an essential cooling water supply. (Ref: Canadian Marine Machinery Regulations – SOR/90‐264). Icing/blockage could occur anytime between December and March. It is hard to predict when it becomes in force as weather is unpredictable. When water temperature drops below 1 deg C chances of encountering frazil ice may arise.

If your vessel is not properly equipped, Owner / Authorized representative will have to foresee the installation of a re‐circulating sea water cooling system. The system is to be approved by Class / RO.

Should underwater modifications be required, permanent installations may be postponed until next scheduled dry docking. Meanwhile, the use of a provisional sea water cooling system may be accepted by Canadian Administration, if installed under Class / RO’s supervision. Any ships returning that had a previous temporary recirculation system installed (using flexible hoses and ball valves) require again the approval from class for winter 2013/2014 and this is to be indicated in the message sent to our office.

Any vessel experiencing difficulties with the SW cooling system will have to take immediate measures in order to remedy the problem. If the problem persists, the Master may be directed to seek all necessary assistance to proceed to a safe refuge through the safest route provided by Canadian Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Services (CCG VTS).

Master / Owner(s) will then have to contact Class / RO in order to seek approval of any modification that may be required to the vessel or its equipment in order to proceed safely to destination.

Failure from the Master to take appropriate action is a violation of the Canada Shipping Act, 2001.

There is no other requirement as per “ice class” vessel. Nevertheless proper and ship specific ISM procedures for navigation in cold weather climates must be in place and strictly followed and understood by all officers and crew members. You could refer to the MARINE SAFETY GUIDE CHECKLIST FOR OPERATION IN ICE INFESTED WATERS found at the end of this document.
