Keel laid at Yantar Shipyard for multii-purpose icebreaker ordered by Russian Ministry of Transport for later outfitting at Arctech Helsinki shipyard

The vessel will be used in the Gulf of Finland in icebreaking operations, sea towing of vessels and floating facilities and oil combatting.

The multipurpose emergency and rescue icebreaker, which is being built in cooperation with shipyard Yantar, represents a completely new type of oil spill combat technology. The advanced oil recovery system is suitable for operation also in heavy waves.

One of the special features of the vessel is that it will be able to move sideways, featuring a patented oblique design with asymmetric hull and three azimuthing propulsors, which allow the vessel to operate efficiently ahead, astern and obliquely (sideways).

The vessel will be able to proceed on a continuous mode in 1.0 m thick level ice both ahead and astern, and in oblique mode she will be able to generate 50 m wide channel in 0.6 m thick ice.

The design of the vessel is based on ARC 100 concept, which has been developed by Aker Arctic Technology for Arctech Helsinki Shipyard.

The vessel measures 76,4 m in length and 20,5 m in breadth. The three main diesel generator sets have the total power of 9 MW. The total propulsion power is about 7 MW.

The vessel will be delivered in December 2013.
