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.
