The vessels of this series are among the best in their class and are purpose-designed for operating in challenging ice conditions of the Sea of Okhotsk. The vessels’ design and equipment allows them to ensure the safety of Sakhalin-2’s personnel, employed at three offshore production platforms, and a rapid response to emergency situations throughout the year.
The naming ceremony was attended by Aleksey Rakhmanov, President of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Igor Tonkovidov, Executive Vice-President and Technical Director of Sovcomflot, and Paul Eykhout, Offshore Asset Manager at Sakhalin Energy.
The vessel is named after Admiral Fedor Ushakov (1745–1817), a legendary Russian naval commander, who did not suffer a single defeat throughout his entire career and was instrumental in the founding of the Port of Sevastopol and the development of Russia’s Black Sea fleet. In 2004, Ushakov was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
SCF currently operates 10 vessels that serve Sakhalin-2: three oil tankers; two LNG tankers, and five icebreaking supply and standby vessels. Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has delivered five icebreaking multifunctional vessels for SCF since 2011.SHOW ALL NEWS
