Arctech Helsinki shipyard has been awarded a contract to build an ice-breaking supply vessel for Russia’s largest shipping company Sovcomflot.
The new vessel would be built for the northeast Sakhalin offshore region oil and gas field where it would be used as a platform supply vessel for Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (SEIC), according to a press release issued on Monday.
The total value of the work order is about Euro 100 million. The project will start immediately and the vessel will be delivered to the client in June 2016.
"This order is an excellent continuation for the series of ice-breaking multipurpose vessels that Arctech built in past few years. With this order, Arctech confirms its position as leading builder of arctic offshore vessels,” says Arctech Helsinki Shipyard Managing Director Esko Mustamäki. 
The vessel brings together the latest innovations in arctic shipbuilding science and technology and was a further developed version of the two multifunctional ice-breaking supply vessels, Vitus Bering and Aleksey Chirikov, delivered for Sovcomflot in 2012 and 2013, the release mentioned.
The new ice-breaking supply vessel measures 100 metres in length and 21 metres in breadth.  
The vessel is designed for extreme environmental conditions in the Sakhalin area. It will be able to safely convey and transfer cargo on deck and bulk cargo under-deck in all seasons.
It can also act as diving support vessel including a moon pool feature.
Arctech Helsinki Shipyard Inc. specializes in arctic shipbuilding technology, e.g. building icebreakers and other arctic offshore and special vessels.
Having almost 150 years' experience in shipbuilding, Arctech employs approximately 400 shipbuilders.
