Aker Yards Delivered Arctic Container Vessel

Tuesday, April 11, 2006
MS Norilskiy Nickel, an arctic container vessel built under NB 505 at Aker Yards in Helsinki, was delivered to the Russian MMC Norilsk Nickel. The vessel is intended for traffic on the Northern Sea Route. The vessel left Helsinki on March 3 for ice trials in real arctic conditions in Northern Russia. After successfully completing its trials, it was handed over to the owners in Murmansk on April 11. MS Norilskiy Nickel is a prototype based on the double-acting ship concept developed by Aker Yards. The 14,500 dwt Arctic Container Vessel worth $84.9 m is 169 m x 23 m, with 9 m draught and capable of breaking 1.5 m ice. It will transport metallurgical products from Dudinka on the river of Yenisey to Murmansk. The vessel can navigate the ice-bound Arctic Ocean all year round, without the assistance of ice breakers.
