Wartsila engine to power Yamal LNG icebreaker

Wärtsilä 31 engine has been selected to power a new generation icebreaker currently under construction at the Vyborg Shipyard.

The ship is being built on behalf of FSUE Atomflot, the enterprise of Rosatom, the State Corporation for Atomic Energy, Wärtsilä said on Friday, adding that the order was signed in September.

When delivered, the icebreaker will serve the Yamal LNG project in Sabetta, located northeast of the Yamal peninsula in Russia.

The icebreaker Aker ARC 124 will feature three 8-cylinder Wärtsilä 31 engines. The installation will also include Wärtsilä’s online monitoring of the engines, thereby enabling their operating condition to be closely followed remotely.
