Icebreaker Murmansk was the second in a series of three vessels, which the Russian Ministry of Transport ordered in 2012 from Vyborg Shipyard. The basic design of the vessel and purchasing of major components was provided by Vyborg Shipyard. Arctech was responsible for the construction, outfitting and testing of the powerful vessel.
The main tasks of the vessel are icebreaking and assisting of heavy-tonnage vessels in ice, towing of vessels and other floating structures year-round in ice and open water. The vessel will also be used for fire fighting on floating objects and other facilities, assisting vessels in distress in ice and open water and also for cargo transportation. The vessel is able to operate in temperatures as cold as -40°С and the maximum icebreaking capability is 1.5 m. The icebreaker will measure 119.8 m in length and 27.5 m in breadth.
