Arctech lays keel for new icebreaking offshore vessel

Building the hull of the icebreaking multipurpose supply vessel for Sovcomflot, Russia’s largest shipping company, started on 17 December 2015 at the Arctech Helsinki shipyard with a festive keel laying. The vessel is the first of four icebreaking sister ships Sovcomflot has ordered.

The vessel’s first block, which was placed in the building dock, weighs 221 tons. It is the starting point of the hull assembly. The vessel will be capable of breaking through ice even as thick as 1.5 meters.

The vessel will be outfitted for emergency evacuation, rescue and fire fighting operations, oil spill response and platform support activities. Once delivered, the vessel will serve in the Sakhalin-2 region energy production sites by transporting supplies and people between land bases and production platforms and protecting the production platforms from the impact of ice in the Sea of Okhotsk.

Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (SEIC) operates the oil and gas field.
