As well, with BMT, we are working with several large offshore engineering and shipbuilding firms in US Europe and Asia (7 large firms to date), supporting their efforts to develop ice-capable ships and ocean structures. Generally these are activities driven by oil and gas activities in arctic and sub-arctic ice-covered waters, but also involve fabrication, transport and mining sectors. Related work on standards for government and non-government regulatory bodies is also within the scope.
