Work Of The Russian High-Tech Icebreaker

Posted on February 22, 2011 by team

Ice-class tugboat “Nevskaya Zastava” (“Neva Outpost”) was designed and constructed in St. Petersburg. In spite of icebreaker functions it can eliminate oil spills, put out fires, tow boats and take part in rescue operations.

Technical features of the craft are low silhouette, lowering aerials and moving deck cabin which makes the icebraker have no need of draw bridges. Special engines design makes the craft turn around without moving forward or backward.

The crew consists of 5 people.

The craft is equipped with several surveillance cameras all the info from which is transmitted on a deck cabin monitor.

    Instead of breaking the ice, this would be a good job for the hover craft. Just transit from sea to ice with no issues.

    Nice combination of marine tech. Thanks for the picks.

    Nice range of abilities. The zero length turning ability would be great in small crowded harbors.

    I wish I had tugs that nice when I was working on the water.
    Most of the tugs I worked on were based on designs not too different than those used in WWII.

    When you say it has a moving deck cabin are you referring to a cabin that can be raised up to improve visibility while on tow?
