A324 SAS PROTEA

Forecastle

The ship's two (one each for port and starboard) anchors are controlled by the windlass winches on the fo'c's'le.

The crane is mostly used for provisioning before setting to sea, but is also used to load 4x4 vehicles used during inshore coastal surveys.

Instructions

The SAS PROTEA has de-icing hydrants fitted to the upper decks. The formation of ice on the decks when the ship travels to very cold regions, like the Antarctic, can influence the ship's stability (and cause slippery decks!). The hydrants provide warm water to melt and wash down the ice.


De-icing hydrant.
