Notations for the ships hull ice strengthening E Ice class for ships the hull and machinery installations of which are strengthened for navigation in drift ice in mouths of rivers and coastal regions according to GLs Construction Rules. Upon request, the Notation E may be assigned independently for hull or machinery. Ice class for ships and machinery installations, which comply with the E1 requirements of the GL Construction Rules for ice conditions as in the E2 Northern Baltic. Hull and machinery must always be assigned the same ice E3 class. Notations E1 to E4 correspond to ice classes IC to IA Super of the E4 Finnish/Swedish Ice Class Rules. With regard to ice strengthening, vessels hull and machinery comply with the E01 requirements of the GL Construction Rules in force until.05.1971 (last printed E02 in the 1980 Edition). E03 E04 EF Hull and machinery of fishing vessels (in particular those trading in waters around Greenland and/or in comparable sea waters) have been designed such as to comply with the relevant requirements of the GL Rules for fishing vessels
