Gallery: Havyard names new icebreaker

Norwegian shipbuilder Havyard Ship Technology AS named its newbuild 122, the icebreaker Aleut at Skoltekaien quay in Bergen, Norway on November 28.

In November 2013, Havyard signed a contract to design and build the first of the three Havyard 843 ICE icebreaking offshore vessels for the Russian shipping company Femco.

The Havyard 843 ICE design, Aleut, will operate under harsh conditions in the Prirazlomnoye field. Once it has been named, Aleut will sail to Murmansk, Russia to stock up on equipment and provisions before it heads for the field situated between the Russian mainland and Novaya Zemlya.

Aleut has been hired by the Russian oil company Gazprom and it will service the Prirazlomnaya platform. The two icebreakers Havyard delivered in 2006 also service this field.

According to Havyard, the ship’s equipment and propulsion will allow it to break one-metre-thick ice at 3 knots, and a de-icing system will allow it to withstand temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius. During the sea trial, the vessel’s speed was measured at 16 knots and the bollard pull was just above 200 tonnes.
