Kapitan Dranitsyn icebreaker was the first of three icebreakers of the FSUE "Rosmorport" Murmansk Branch to complete navigation in the waters of the Northern Sea Route.

During the period from December 1, 2022 to April 11, 2023, the icebreaker provided icebreaking pilotage of vessels in the western part of the Northern Sea Route in the water area of the Kara Sea, including the Yenisei Bay, as well as in the Throat of the White Sea.
