In March 2017, Statoil performed station-keeping trials in drifting ice in the Bay of Bothnia with two anchor handling tug supply vessels. The vessels Tor Viking and Magne Viking were used as Support vessel and Moored vessel, respectively. This paper describes the above mentioned marine assets, mooring analysis, mooring configuration, mooring and unmooring procedures, including quick disconnection system design and operation.
