Hammerfest LNG Plant – Sea Spray Icing
Special attention has to be taken towards Sea Spray for all Sea Front structures facing the Harsh climate in the Barents Sea. Combination of cold temperatures, wind and waves forms Sea spray icing. This poses significant risk to sea and sea front structures and Hammerfest LNG has a severe design condition of sea spray icing in the range of 1 m.
