The icebreaker «Kapitan Dranitsyn» went to the sea port of Sabetta. This information was given in the Murmansk branch of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise «Rosmorport».
Additional icebreaker piloting became necessary for ships entering the sea port of Sabetta on approaches to the port because of complicated ice conditions. The icebreaker will pilot ships from Cape Zhelaniya in Novaya Zemlya to borders of water area of the sea port of Sabetta. This is the second icebreaker of the enterprise, which starts work in this sea port. The port icebreaker «Tor» of the North-Western basin branch of «Rosmorport» works on its water area. In the beginning of March «Kapitan Dranitsyn» will come back to Murmansk for replenishment of supplies before the next trip.
As we should note, the icebreaker «Kapitan Dranitsyn» is purposed for year-round work in any districts of the World Ocean. It is required among Russian and foreign freighters to provide different kinds of work in the Arctic and the Antarctic. During winter navigation the icebreaker provides piloting of ships to freezing ports of the Russian Federation, as it is informed on the portal korabli.eu.
