Russia’s Rosmorport launches tender for two LNG-powered icebreakers

Russian state-owned maritime infrastructure firm Rosmorport said Tuesday it issued a tender for the construction of two LNG-powered icebreakers.

The dual-fuel 12-14 MW vessels will have the ability to break up to 1.5-meter thick ice, Rosmorport said in a statement.

In addition, they would work year-round in the Baltic Sea, Barents Sea, and White Sea but also in the Pacific Basin, the firm said.

The vessels would be the first such ships in Russia but also the world’s first icebreakers utilizing the DYNPOS-2 dynamic positioning technology, Rosmorport said.

Moreover, Rosmorport plans to build in total ten new icebreakers by 2030.

The company provides icebreaking assistance services to vessels in 15 seaports in Russia using 36 icebreakers and ice-breaking tugs, according to its website.
