Laysky Shipyard in Archangel, Russia, launches the 'Iskander' tugboat for delivery to Ecotek-Bunker after sea trials.
The new tugboat will transport barges laden with coal, firewood, construction materials to remote areas of the Arkhangelsk region: Mezen, Kamenka, Onega, and to the Nenets Autonomous District.
This is the second ice-class tug launched at Laysky Shipyard in the past eighteen months.
The Laysky Shipyard is located in the Lay River estuary, a tributary of the Northern Dvina.
The shipyard has a 14,000 cmb dry dock, for construction of both flat and keeled vessels of dock weight of 2,500 ton, with 115-m-long keel track cribbing. The dock crane’s lifting capacity is 20 tons.
