    Vyborg Shipyard lays down port icebreaker Ob for Sabetta

    On 27 September 2016, Vyborg Shipyard (Leningrad Region) laid down port icebreaker Ob for FSUE Atomflot, says Atomflot’s PR Department.

    The ceremonial keel-laying was attended by Vyacheslav Ruksha, Director General of FSUE Atomflot; Igor Shakalo, Director General of USC’s Civil Shipbuilding Department; Aleksandr Solovyov, Director General of Vyborg Shipyard PJSC; Mika Hovilainen,  Project Manager, AkerArctic Technology Inc., etc.
     
    12 MW icebreaker of Project Aker ARC 124 (ice class Icebreaker7) will be able to operate efficiently in 1.5-meter thick level ice at 2 knots and achieve at a speed of 4 knots in 5-meter thick consolidated brash ice.
      
    The icebreaker will be owned and operated by FSUE Atomflot under a package contract on escorting of vessels and servicing of the water area at port Sabetta within the framework of Yamal LNG project. The contract signed in November 2014 covers the period up to December 31, 2040.  
     
    “Keel-laying of a port icebreaker is a milestone event for Rosatomflot. Ob icebreaker is to become the flagship of Portoflot project and the vessel’s remarkable characteristics is the best confirmation of it,” said Vyacheslav Ruksha, Director General of FSUE Atomflot.
       
    Vessel’s characteristics: length – 89.5 m, breadth – 21.9 m; draught – 7.5 m. The power plant consists of three medium-speed main generating sets and a separate harbor generator. Four icestrengthened azimuth propulsion units, each with a shaft output of 3000 kW, provide a bollard pull of 115 tons.

    With two azimuth propulsion units in the bow and two units in the stern of the vessel, the icebreaker can maneuver efficiently in any  direction.  
      
    The port icebreaker is arranged with single cabins for a crew of 18 and additional accommodation for up to 12 supernumeraries. 
      
    The construction of Ob icebreaker is to be completed in November 2018.

    Vyborg Shipyard PJSC (part of state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation from 2012) is one of the largest shipbuilding companies of the North-Western Region of Russia with over 65-years’ experience in shipbuilding. The shipyard’s order backlog of RUB 43 bln covers the period of several years. Vyborg Shipyard employs about 1,300 Vyborg citizens and involves some 500 contractors.
