Naming ceremony of a new icebreaking supply vessel "Fyodor Ushakov”

The official naming ceremony of a new icebreaking multipurpose supply vessel for production platforms "Fyodor Ushakov” built to the class of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) was held on 11 October 2017.

The vessel was commissioned by PAO “Sovcomflot” for the Sakhalin-2 project. "Fyodor Ushakov” is the third of four icebreaking multipurpose supply and support vessels under construction within the framework of the project. Two vessels have already been put in commission: the supply vessel ”Gennadiy Nevelskoy” – in the spring of 2017, the supply vessel “Stepan Makarov” – in the summer of 2017.

The ships are specially designed for operation under difficult ice conditions of the Sea of Okhotsk, being at present the top-level in the class. Their design and equipment will allow to ensure the year-round safety of the Sakhalin-2 project personnel working on the three offshore production platforms and to promptly respond to emergencies.

The construction work is being performed at Arctech Helsinki Shipyard (a subsidiary of United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC). Technical supervision during construction of all four vessels is carried out by RS.

"Fyodor Ushakov” will operate flying the flag of the Russian Federation, the port of registry being St. Petersburg. The crew will consist of 28 people.

Main specifications:

  • length – 99,9 m;
  • breadth – 21,6 m;
  • draught – 7,6 m;
  • deadweight– 3824 t.
RS class notation: KM(*) Icebreaker6 AUT1 OMBO FF3WS DYNPOS-2 ANTI-ICE ECO WINTERIZATION(-35) passenger ship/supply vessel/oil recovery ship.

The vessel was named after a legendary Russian Naval Commander, Admiral Fyodor Fedorovich Ushakov (1745-1817), who did not suffer a single defeat in his entire military career and was instrumental in both the foundation of the port of Sevastopol and the development of the Russian Navy fleet in the Black Sea.
