Icebreaker











Arctech Helsinki Shipyard is building a 16 MW icebreaker for the Russian Ministry of Transport. The icebreaker is planned to be used in year-round operation in the Baltic Sea and in summer season in the Arctic seas. The vessel is able to operate in temperatures as cold as -40°С and the maximum icebreaking capability is 1.5 m.

The icebreaker is being built together with OJCS Vyborg Shipyard. The vessel belongs to a series of three new buildings ordered by the Russian Ministry of Transport from Vyborg Shipyard. The basic design and purchasing of major components will be provided by Vyborg Shipyard as well as almost half of the vessels hull blocks. Arctech will be responsible of the construction, outfitting and commissioning of the vessel. The vessel will be delivered to the client in Autumn 2015.

The main tasks of the vessel are icebreaking and assisting of heavy-tonnage vessels in ice, towing of vessels and other floating structures 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.
