Ice-Breaking: Three new ice-breakers

Finland’s Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has signed a contract to build three icebreaking stand-by vessels for Sovcomflot. The ships will be built for the North East Sakhalin Offshore region’s oil and gas field, where they will serve the operator of Sakhalin-2, Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd (SEIC). The total value of the order is about US$380 million.

The vessels are to be delivered between September 2016 and March 2017. The series includes one larger platform supply vessel, which was contracted between Arctech and Sovcomflot in April. They are designed for stand-by and rescue duties, and for oil spill recovery, measure 95m by 22m and are based on Aker Arctic concept Aker ARC 121. The four engines have a total power output of about 20,000kW.
