    Acceptance/delivery certificate for diesel-electric icebreaker Vladivostok of Project 21900М built at Vyborg Shipyard (a corporate member of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) for Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) has been signed today, October 9, the shipyard told IAA PortNews.

    Sea trials program included testing of the vessel speed and maneuvering characteristics, performance and compatibility of ship systems and equipment, operation capacity of the propulsion plant as well as electrical, radio and navigation equipment. The vessel’s systems and mechanisms function nominally.

    21900М icebreakers designed in Russia have been ordered by the Federal Marine and River Transport Agency with FSUE Rosmorport as construction customer.

    The ship can break through 1.5 meter thick ice. Her major task is independent escorting of large capacity vessels, towing, extinguishing of fires at floating facilities and other structures, providing assistance to vessels in distress, transportation of cargo. 

    The Vladivostok is the lead ship in the series of three 18 MW diesel-electric icebreakers being built under the Federal Targeted Programme “Development of Russia’s Transport System (2010 – 2020)”. The Vladivostok is a highly automated icebreaker of new generation with unrestricted area of navigation able to  break through 1.5 meter thick ice.

    The icebreaker is intended for independent escorting of large capacity vessels, towing, extinguishing of fires at floating facilities and other structures, providing assistance to vessels in distress, transportation of cargo.  For that purpose the ship has a deck for containers and is equipped with a 26-tonne crane. With her fuel capacity the ship can operate for 40 days. The icebreaker also has a helipad.

    The Vladivostok will be deployed for operation at the North-West Basin Branch of FSUE Rosmorport within the water area of the Baltic Sea in winter and in the Arctic seas in summer-autumn period.

    Vyborg Shipyard PJSC is one of the largest shipbuilding companies of the North-Western Region of Russia with 65-years’ experience in shipbuilding. Since the Shipyard was founded (1948) there have been built more than 200 different vessels with total displacement exceeding 1,550,000 t. In 2012, Vyborg Shipyard joined the United Shipbuilding Corporation.
