Kapitan Zarubin icebreaker Review

Review of Kapitan Zarubin icebreaker

MS Kapitan Zarubin ("ледокол Капитан Зарубин") is an icebreaking vessel owned and operated by Rosmorport. “Rosmorport” is a Russian FSUE (“Federal State Unitary Enterprise”) created in 2012 by the order of the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Transport.

One of the Russian river icebreaker ships, Kapitan Zarubin is named after the famous captain Ivan Ivanovich Zarubin (1822-1902), mechanical engineer of the Russian Imperial Navy. He was also a lieutenant-general Corps of Naval Engineers, and the first in Russia awarded the Japanese Order of the Rising Sun.

At the end of 2014, Rosmorport published an open request for proposals about signing an agreement to supply SZCH for diesel generator Wartsila-VASSA 12V22B on the icebreaker Zarubin. The starting price of the order was 4,95 million rubles, including the cost of the works themselves as well as the additional costs such as taxes, customs duties, insurance.

Rosmorport’s Kapitan Zarubin itinerary program offers sailings in the White Sea, as well as in Russia’s Arctic Ocean waters with departures from home-port St Petersburg.
