With BFT's unique icebreaker system, our calculations shows that you will be able to brake ice up to >1,0 meter thickness and 7,5 meter in width by using a "Daafjord design tug of 8 meters in length and with only 750 HK and only 4 Tons pushing force! (Still to be full scale tested! BFT has received grants from Innovasjon Norge for further testing and development of this system)
Our ambition and the ultimate goal is to break up to 3-meter ice in a width of 25 meters with a larger "Daafjord" design tug using only 11 tons push force!
(To be further tested)
