The icebreakers or Arctia Shipping Oy assists vessels in winter time navigation, from open water to the port and back, according to the prevailing ice conditions. As a rule, restrictions for navigation through ice are applied at the time. VTS, pilots and icebreakers in the area give adequate information about the prevailing ice conditions. Information can also be found on the web pages of the Finnish Transport Safety Agency(www.trafi.fi/en/).
