Northern Sea Route: Way Back Home

Posted on November 28, 2014 by team

Another sailing is over and the huge grey vessel comes to the native berth after endless polar nights and numerous rescues of ships from the jaws of the arctic ice…

For the next few months, the 50-tonne screws of this 75 thousand hp giant will peacefully sleep at the berth, getting ready for new navigations when the icebreaker will again become a repair shop, home for the crew, hotel, canteen, elite training center…

The sailing started in August 20, the Arctic gave them a warm welcome…

Three states of water…

The first mission was to meet and transport a hydraulic dredge through the ice and not only…
