Arctech is currently building a series of four vessels for the Russia´s largest shipping company Sovcomflot. The first vessel in the series got water under the keel for the first time on 30 June. At the same time, the second vessel in the series was floated and moved in order to give way for the keel block of the third vessel.
The sea trials of the new Finnish icebreaker Polaris continued on 20th June. LNG bunkering of the ship took place in Vuosaari Harbour 18-19 June and the second sea trials have been driven for the first time with gas.
