In the port of Ust-Luga, due to slower ice formation and milder weather forecast, the introduction of additional restrictions for vessels is put off until February 7 instead of January 31.
Since this date, the following restrictions enter into force:
Barges pulled by tugs and vessels with no ice class are not allowed to sail in the ice conditions.
Ice1 ice classed vessels are allowed to navigate only escorted by icebreakers.
Vessels with the Ice2 and higher ice class and above are allowed to navigate with or without icebreaking support.
