Arctech has finalized the first of four vessels commissioned by SCF Group for operation at the Sea of Okhotsk.The ship will start its voyage from Helsinki to the Sakhalin Island on Sunday 5th March.

The Icebreaking Supply Vessel Gennadiy Nevelskoy delivered at Arctech Helsinki Shipyard

The series of the four icebreaking offshore vessels has been developed and designed by Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. The now delivered ice-breaking platform supply vessel Gennadiy Nevelskoy will be followed by three icebreaking stand-by vessels. These three stand-by vessels will have a slightly smaller deadweight, but offer the same icebreaking capacity with enhanced functionality and a higher accommodation capacity, than Gennadiy Nevelskoy.

All the four vessels will be used for year-round delivery of supplies and consumables to offshore platforms, transporting personnel and for performing standby and ice management duties near the platforms. The vessels will also be outfitted for integrated environmental protection and rescue operations.
