Review of Kapitan Borodkin icebreaker

MS Kapitan Borodkin ("ледокол Капитан Бородкин") is an icebreaking vessel owned and operated by LORP - Yakutsk, Russia ("Ленское объединённое речное пароходство") which currently operates a fleet of five ships.

Kapitan Borodkin icebreaker ship

One of the Russian river icebreaker ships, Kapitan Borodkin is named after Alexey Borodkin (1910-1975), member of the Lena Expedition in 1933. He sailed on the ice-strengthened SS Chelyuskin steamship from  Murmansk to Vladivostok (on the Northern Maritime Route).

On July 30, 2014, according to an order, the icebreaker Kapitan Borodkin left Yana Bay and together with two empty barges went offshore in Laptev Sea en-route to the New Siberian Islands archipelago. For almost three months the ship crew carried out the maneuvering and allowed the discharge of the Northern Fleet and the delivery of general cargo ships of OJSC LORP to Kotelny Island.

Kapitan Borodkin itinerary program offers sailings in Russia’s Arctic Ocean waters with departures from home-port Zhatay (on Lena River, Sakha Republic, Russia).
