The naming ceremony for Fyodor Ushakov, a new multi-purpose ice-breaking standby vessel, took place yesterday. The vessel is built for the Sakhalin II project under a long-term agreement between Sakhalin #energy and #sovcomflot.
Attending the naming ceremony were Igor Tonkovidov, Deputy General Director – Chief Engineer of Sovcomflot and Paul Eykhout, Offshore Asset Manager at Sakhalin #energy.
Also in attendance were representatives of Admiral Ushakov Maritime State University. The new vessel's godmother is Tatyana Timchenko, PhD in Economics, Associate Professor of the Organization of Transportation and Transport Management Department, Head of the Customs Law Department.
The vessel is named after Admiral Fyodor Ushakov (1745–1817), a legendary Russian naval commander, who did not suffer a single defeat throughout his whole military career and played one of the key roles in developing the Russian fleet on the Black Sea.
The vessel was constructed at the Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping was providing technical supervision during the construction of the vessel, just like in the case of other vessels built for the Sakhalin II project.
It is the third in a series of four multi-purpose ice-breaking supply and standby vessels constructed under the long-term agreement between the companies. Two of these vessels are already operational within the Sakhalin II project: Gennady Nevelskoy supply vessel (since the spring of 2017), and Stepan Makarov standby vessel (since the summer of 2017).
As of today, the vessels of this series are among the best in their class and are designed for operations in severe ice conditions of the Sea of Okhotsk. The vessels' design and equipment help ensure safety for the Sakhalin II personnel deployed at three offshore production platforms, and respond immediately to emergency situations throughout the year.
Fyodor Ushakov is registered under the Russian flag, with St. Petersburg as the home port. The vessel's crew consists of 28 Russian sailors.
