This paper presents studies on increasing the ice strength using various additives. It is indicated that addition of wood fiber (artificial composition) and vegetable fiber (natural composition - frozen peat) to ice is an energy-efficient method to increase its strength. This enhances the possibilities of using ice during building and construction works in the Arctic. As an example, the authors proposed a floating ice pier design.
