The construction of icebreaking tanker begun
July 28, 2017

Arctech Helsinki Shipyard started to construct icebreaking (Arc7) tanker for Greek ship owner. Tanker will transport gas condensate from Yamal peninsula to Europe. Hull erection and keel laying ceremonies were held on July 27, 2017.

Keel-related traditions from the times of wooden ships are said to bring luck to the ship during construction and to the captain and crew during her later life. They include placing a newly minted coin under the keel and constructing the ship over it, having the youngest apprentice place the coin, and when the ship is finished, presenting the owners with the oak block on which the keel is laid.
