Today, we see not just interest in the polar regions, but a real increase in commercial activity. The stunning natural beauty of Antarctica and the Arctic lures tens of thousands of tourists each year to visit these far reaches of our planet, most travelling by ship. Melting ice opens other business opportunities, too, with some regarding the Arctic as an emerging commercial hotspot. Sailing in polar waters brings on new challenges and risks, not only for the ships that sail them, but also for the polar environment and those dependent on it. Through its adoption of the International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters - the Polar Code - the IMO and its members recognize the importance of helping ship owners to manage these risks and to protect the environment in these regions.DNV GL is ready and able to help you. Polar shipping has long been a strategic priority for us. Today, we class some 25 percent of the ships that visit Arctic and Antarctic waters each year.
In this brochure, you will find information on how the Polar Code applies to your vessels, what you need to do, and how DNV GL can help you. We look forward to being your partner for safe, successful polar operations.
