Icebreaking Stand-by Vessels, NB512(-514)

The icebreaking stand-by vessels are designed for stand-by and rescue duties and for oil spill recovery. The vessels measure 95 m in length and 22 m in breadth and are based on  the Aker ARC 121 concept of Aker Arctic.

The vessels will be operating in thick drifting ice for ice management and icebreaking in temperatures as cold as minus 35°C. The icebreaking capability of the stand-by vessels is extremely high; the vessels are able to proceed independently in 1.5 m thick ice. The vessels will be outfitted for emergency evacuation, firefighting operations and helicopter operations. The vessels can also act as diving support vessel as they are outfitted with a moon pool.
