The icebreaking fleet is the real pride and competitive advantage of the enterprise, as well as of the entire maritime industry of Russia. FSUE “Rosmorport” is the operator of the world's largest icebreaking group. It now includes 35 icebreakers of various classes, including the flagship of the enterprise's fleet – the world's most powerful non-nuclear icebreaker, Viktor Chernomyrdin. The model of the icebreaker is presented at the exhibition.

Among the important achievements of the enterprise, there are the country's first innovative eco-ferries Marshal Rokossovsky and General Chernyakhovsky, capable of operating on LNG and low-sulfur diesel fuel. Both 200-meter giants built by the FSUE “Rosmorport” order operates on the “Ust-Luga Seaport - Kaliningrad Seaport” ferry line, ensuring transport accessibility of the Kaliningrad region and its connection with the rest of the country. Models of ferries and an impressive video about their trials and work are another key theme of the exhibition.
