Deltamarin participates in icebreaking stand-by vessel design

Sovcomflot stand-by vessels / Arctech Helsinki Shipyard

Deltamarin Ltd provides Arctech Helsinki Shipyard with machinery and hull design services for two Arctic icebreaking stand-by vessels. Russia’s largest shipping company Sovcomflot has earlier in 2014 ordered three so called stand-by vessels from Arctech for the Sakhalin region oil and gas field.

The ice-breaking stand-by vessels will mainly be used for rescue and oil spill recovery duties. They can also be used as supply vessels for cargo transfer.  Deltamarin will assist Arctech by carrying out machinery design for the first vessel of the series and hull design for the two first vessels of the series.

The vessels will be operating in thick drifting ice for ice management and icebreaking in temperatures as cold as minus 35 C° and are able to proceed independently in as thick as 1.5 meter thick ice. The main dimensions are 95 m in length and 22 m in breadth.
The delivery of the vessels is planned between September 2016 and March 2017.
