Sovcomflot Multi-purpose Icebreaker Platform Supply Vessel Named

- Feb 08, 2018-

On February 3, Sovcomflot held a Russian Federation flag and naming ceremony for Yevgeny Primakov, a new multifunctional icebreaker supply vessel in St. Petersburg.


The "Yevgeny Primakov" multi-purpose icebreaker supply vessel was built by Arctech Shipyard, a subsidiary of Russia's United Shipbuilding Company, under the supervision of the Russian Register of Shipping, which provided the ship with a high ice level - Icebreaker 6 mark.


The ship is 104.4 meters long, 21 meters wide, draft 7.9 meters, dwt 3,670 tons. The design and construction of the multifunctional icebreaker supply vessel "Yevgeny Primakov" reflects the experience of Sovcomflot over many years of work on the Sakhalin-1 project and the Sakhalin-2 project . In terms of technical characteristics, the new ship is one of the best in this class of icebreakers.(welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling)


The vessel was designed to sail in the Far East Ocean Basin (Sea of Okhotsk) under difficult ice and navigation conditions. The vessel's design and its associated equipment mean that it can effectively ensure offshore oil and gas production platforms, including in icing conditions, by breaking any ice formed around it to prevent the formation of ice hocks and heavy ice sheets around the platform run.


The ship will also provide year-round backup search and rescue support and be able to respond quickly to potential emergencies and, if necessary, carry out underwater work and repairs.(welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling)


The propulsion system of the vessel, consisting of two Azipod propulsion units with a total capacity of 13 MW, will ensure high maneuverability and help the ship penetrate the ice thickness of up to 1.5 meters covering up to 20 cm of snow . The ship also has a relatively large carrying capacity and, despite its small size, the Yevgeny Primakov multi-functional icebreaker supply vessel normally provides beds for 70 people (in addition to its crew) and, in case of an emergency Under, you can carry up to 150 people.(welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling)


The "Yevgeny Primakov" multi-purpose icebreaker supply vessel will ship the Russian flag to St. Petersburg as its port of registry. The ship is entirely driven by 26 Russian crew members.
