Arctech is building the vessels for Russian shipping corporation Sovcomflot to supply the Arkutun-Dagi oil and gas field in the Sakhalin area of  Far East Russia.

Both vessels for Sovcomflot will be similar measuring 99.9 m in length and 21.7 m in breadth, with engines providing a total power of 18,000 kW and a propulsion power of 13,000 kW.

The icebreaking capability of the vessels is extremely high, they are able to operate independently in 1.7 meter thick ice.

As multipurpose vessels, they are capable of carrying various type of cargo and are equipped for oil clean-up operations, fire fighting, and rescue operations. The rescue capacity is for 195 persons.

A third project for Arctech was announced: "The construction of an icebreaking rescue vessel, has started at Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad. The hull will be shipped to Helsinki for outfitting and finalizing works in spring 2013”, says Esko Mustamäki, Managing Director of Arctech Helsinki Shipyard.
