The LNG carrier was named after Vladimir Rusanov, the Arctic explorer and geologist of the Soviet Union. Joint built by COSCO SHIPPING LNG Investment (Shanghai), a wholly owned subsidiary of CSET, and MOL, it is the first in a series of 3 icebreaking LNG carriers ordered for the Yamal LNG project. The vessel is capable of sailing independently through ice of up to 2.1 meters thick in the temperature of -52℃. She has been assigned an ice class Arc7, the highest ice class amongst existing merchant vessels. The power of Vladimir Rusanov’s propulsion system is 45MW, a capacity comparable to that of a modern nuclear icebreaker. The propulsion system includes three Azipod units which provide a high ice-breaking capability and maneuverability. It marks a big stride for CSET in LNG shipping project, and is of strategic importance for “One Belt, One Road” Initiative and Arctic seaborne transportation.

Vladimir Rusanov is to take ice-breaking trial from February to March, 2018, and be delivered in Sabbeta at the end of March.

The Yamal LNG project is highly supported by both government with an overall investment of $ 27 billion. It will ship over 3 million tons LNG to China annually. Its voyage route is called “The Silk Road on Ice” given the fact that the project is located on 71 degrees north latitude and near Arctic Ocean.
