In winter, during the sea route
across the North Atlantic to Quebec and Montreal, vessels often encounter
harsh sub-zero conditions. Being sprayed constantly
by strong waves, the sea spray invariably accumulates into a heavy mass
of ice on ship structures, often creating a top-heavy layer, followed
overdraft condition which can affect the stability of the vessel.
The resulting coating of ice also can create difficulties of access to cargo
and its discharge unless the onboard discharging equipment is first de-iced.
In such sub-zero weather conditions, vessels continually experience freezing
of ballast lines and tank vents, making difficult or impossible ballasting
