Icebreaking rescue vessel Baltika left on Sea Trial
March 6, 2014

The icebreaking rescue vessel Baltika left on sea trial on Thursday morning 6 March 2014. The trial will last for a couple of days. The sea trial is part of the test use of the ship, which is done to assure the functionality of the vessel systems.

Baltika is the first ship ever to break ice sideways. In oblique mode the vessel is 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.

Baltika will be delivered to the Russian Federal Agency of Sea and River Transport in spring 2014. The vessel will be used in icebreaking, rescue and oil combatting operations in the Gulf of Finland.
