In March 2017, Statoil performed station-keeping trials in drifting ice in the Bay of Bothnia with two anchor handling tug supply vessels, Magne Viking and Tor Viking. The primary objective of the Station-keeping Trials in Ice project (SKT) was to gather full-scale data on a stationary floating structure in ice. The data will be used for validation of numerical and physical models, that will in turn increase confidence in modelling tools for design and operation in ice-covered waters. The principal requirement of the project was to safely collect the maximum amount of data meeting the quality requirements within the available budget and timeframe. This paper presents the overall project planning and execution, while more details are provided in the companion papers.
