Arctech Helsinki Shipyard to Build a 16 MW Icebreaker

Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has been awarded a contract to build a 16 MW icebreaker for the Russian Ministry of Transport.   The contract has been awarded together with OJCS Vyborg Shipyard. The total value of the vessel is about EUR 100 million. The project will start immediately and the vessel will be delivered to the client in August 2015. The vessel is planned to be used in year-round operation in the Baltic Sea and in summer season in the Arctic seas. The vessel is able to operate in temperatures as cold as -40°С and the maximum icebreaking capability is 1.5 m. The vessel belongs to series of three new buildings ordered by the Russian Ministry of Transport from Vyborg Shipyard. The basic design and purchasing of major components will be provided by Vyborg Shipyard as well as almost half of the vessels hull blocks. Arctech will be responsible of the construction, outfitting and commissioning of the vessel. “This order is very important for Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. It gives us a good base work load for the next two years. It is also a positive continuation of the icebreaking rescue vessel, that Russian Ministry of Transport ordered a year ago, and which we are building together with Yantar Shipyard”, says Esko Mustamäki, Managing Director of Arctech Helsinki Shipyard.
