The article presents the results of developing a domestic technology for creating an antiicing system for air-inlet grid heating of ship ventilation and air conditioning. It describes designed and manufactured experimental specimens of the anti-icing system. Climatic tests conducted for the developed anti-icing system for air-inlet grid heating showed that the system completely met the operational requirements under exploitation temperatures up to -60 °C approximating the Arctic conditions. The developed heating system may be used for air-inlet grid anti-acing of ship ventilation of icebreakers designed to operate in Arctic conditions, the type of nuclear-powered icebreakers of the series "Moscow".
