Construction of two ice-breaking rescue and recovery vessels: “Murman” and “Beringov Proliv” for the Russian Ministry of Transport.
Construction period: December 2012 and December 2015

The two identical “Multipurpose Rescue and Salvage Vessels” (MPRSV) “Murman” and “Beringov Proliv” are two special ships of a particular kind. The 87.8 metre long, 18.5 metre wide new constructions with a draft of 6.5 metres are of ice class Ice Breaker 6, meaning that they can pass through ice up to one metre thick at a speed of 1.5 knots. They have enough space for a crew of up to 38 people. With their high tech equipment, they can carry out search and rescue operations, and emergency towing operations, even under extreme weather conditions, and guarantee medical treatment for rescued persons thanks to an on-board hospital. They can also work as firefighting and oil spill ships. In addition, the ships are equipped with technology for investigating the sea bed and damaged objects at depths of up to 1,000 metres. Both ships are equipped with a helipad at the bow.
