Nuclear-powered container carrier Sevmorput unloaded cargo for Arctic LNG 2 project
On 4 April 2020, nuclear-powered container carrier Sevmorput completed unloading materials and equipment under the Arctic LNG 2 project, says press center of FSUE Atomflot.
On 22 March, the Sevmorput delivered over 20,000 freight tons of general cargo to the Utrenneye field: reinforced concrete and metal structures, tubulars, construction equipment and electric machinery of domestic origin.
According to Leonid Irlits, Atomflot Director for Shipping, nuclear-powered container carrier had no assistance on its way from Arkhangelsk to the point of unloading. Nuclear-powered icebreaker Vaygach had earlier prepared a canal for the container carrier to approach and to unload the cargo onto the shore ice.
On 5 April 2020, the Sevmorput left for Murmansk.
