• Why take an icebreaker ship to Antarctica?

  • If they are designed to push their way through solid continuous ice as well, they are ice-breakers. Icebreakers are needed if there is a shipping route to keep ice free, if there are military reasons for patrolling in areas with heavy sea ice or if you need to work in heavy ice conditions, particularly in winter.

  • Taking an icebreaker ship to Antarctica is an advantage. You have a quick form of transport, and if you get stuck in ice, the icebreaker part of the ship is there to help!
