The hull assembly of an icebreaking multipurpose emergency and rescue vessel for Russian Ministry of Transport started June 28, 2013 at Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. The vessel will be used in icebreaking, rescue and oil combatting operations in the Gulf of Finland.

The vessel being built at Helsinki shipyard represents a completely new type of technology. The vessel features an asymmetric hull, patented oblique design and three 360 degrees rotating propulsors, which allow the vessel to operate efficiently sideways, astern and ahead. In oblique mode the vessel will be able to generate 50 m wide channel in 0.6 m thick ice. Bow and stern first the vessel can operate in 1.0 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.

When the vessel is delivered, she will be used in the Gulf of Finland in icebreaking, rescue and oil combating operations. The advanced oil recovery system is suitable for operation also in heavy waves. 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 and the total propulsion power is 7.5 MW.

The vessel is being built in cooperation with Kaliningrad based Shipyard Yantar, which has produced the blocks of the vessel. The design, hull assembly, outfitting and commissioning will be done by Arctech in Helsinki. The vessel will be delivered to the customer in spring 2014.
