Arctech Helsinki Shipyard is building the Arctic Icebreaking Tanker
Arctech Helsinki Shipyard says it is building the Arctic Icebreaking (Arc7) Tanker for demanding ice conditions of the Northern Sea route. The main task of the vessel is to secure a year-round transportation of gas condensate.
The aft-vessel of the tanker has been under construction at the Helsinki Shipyard and the bow-vessel arrived just in August to the shipyard.
Currently we are welding the aft and the bow together. Before the launch the vessel will be sandblasted, painted and outfitted.
The tanker is 229 m long and 32,5 m wide and it is the widest ship that has ever been built at Helsinki Shipyard.
