Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex and Rosmorport with support of Rosneft agreed to build a unique icebreaker

Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex and Rosmorport signed a contract to design and build a unique icebreaker with a draught of about 3 meters and capacity of 6.4 MW.

The ice breaker will be used to escort vessels in Russian Federation ports and port approaches, including for the need of marine terminals operated by Rosneft.

The vessel will be built under the supervision of the Russian Maritime Register and will be operated under the flag of the Russian Federation. The first ship of the series of four light-draught icebreakers is scheduled to be built by late 2021.

The contract was signed in furtherance of the agreement concluded in September 2017 during the Eastern Economic Forum.

Implementation of the arrangements with Rosmorport will enable Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex to expand its product range and gain additional experience in building icebreakers and ice-class vessels. The long-term order from Rosmorport for the design and building of ice-breakers will make it possible to reduce the ship-building costs because of the series of orders.

The overall order for high ice-class vessels and icebreakers placed with Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex is already over 15 vessels in scope.

For reference:

Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex is being created on the basis of the Zvezda Far Eastern Shipyard by the Consortium of Rosneftegaz, Rosneft and Gazprombank. The shipbuilding complex design provides for the construction of a heavy outfitting berth, a dry dock, full-cycle production shops, and shops for the construction of offshore marine facilities.

Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex will produce heavy tonnage ships, offshore platform elements, ice-class vessels, special vessels and other marine equipment.

Rosmorport  - a company established in 2003 by the decision of the Government of the Russian Federation  with a view to assist the development of the marine transportation infrastructure, unlock its transit potential and improve competitiveness of the Russian sea ports.  Rosmorport runs business at 65 out of 67 sea ports of Russia. The main objectives include ensuring navigation safety in seaport waters and port approaches, efficient use of federal property and port infrastructure development. Besides, the company engages private investments in developing the infrastructure of the Russian sea ports.
