The vessel is 299 meters long and 50 meters wide. With a capacity of 172,000m3 LNG, it boasts the Arc7 two-way ice breaking ability prescribed by Russian classification society. It can guarantee navigation by continuously breaking the Arctic ice with a thickness of 2.1m in a very low temperature environment of minus 52 degrees Celsius. The vessel is equipped with three pod-type full-slewing electric propellers (no special shafting and rudder systems are required), whose speed and maneuverability are far superior to conventional vessels propelled by shaft paddle and manipulated by rudder, and whose icebreaking performance ranks top in the global arena, which fully reflects the high requirements of the customized services of the “Belt and Road Initiative” and “Arctic Icebreaking”.
