Two icebreakers based on Aker ARC 130 A concept developed by Aker Arctic will be constructed for assisting the tankers in the harbour and on their route to Novy Port terminal and during loading operations.
The first vessel with similar concept (Aker ARC 130) is currently being built in Finland for the Finnish Transport Agency and will be the first LNG-fuelled icebreaker. The icebreakers for Gazprom Neft will be slightly different as they will not use LNG as fuel and will have a stronger hull and more power than the Finnish icebreaker.
