Ice restrictions & precautions for winter 2019-2020
Friday, November 22, 2019, Rostov-on-Don, Russian Federation

In accordance with the Rostov-on-Don Harbour Master’s port order of 21 November, all vessels calling at the port during the forthcoming winter season in 2019-2020 must observe the following requirements and restrictions:

All vessels older than 30 years must have ice-strength (ice class) duly confirmed and certified by the recognised Marine Classification Society.
Towing barges or other objects during ice navigation is prohibited except for emergency operations or towage performed by icebreaker.
All ships must have on board the sufficient quantity of fuel, fresh water and provision for at least 14 days of navigation (from the date of arrival to the start point of the ice convoy).
Further, due to the specific climate of Azov Sea with long stormy periods followed by fast ice formation, it is strongly recommended to have the above stores on board not only during the official ice-navigation period, but throughout the whole winter navigation season. Insufficient ship’s stores might be considered as a clear ground for the addition Port State Control inspection.
