Icebreaker Krasin heads to the areas of the Northern Sea Route to reinforce the icebreaker group

The Krasin icebreaker, that was transferred to the FSUE "Rosmorport" Murmansk Branch in 2021 and changed its home seaport to Murmansk, departed on December 21, 2021 for the Yenisei Gulf to provide icebreaker assistance for vessels on the Northern Sea Route.

The departure of the vessel was preceded by serious work on repairing engines and mechanisms, because the icebreaker is of an honorable age - it turned 45 years old this year.

According to the work plan, Krasin will be involved in providing icebreaker assistance for vessels in the set area through the end of May 2022.
