Russia’s Northern Shipping Company has acquired three vessels. Two of them were built at Peters Shipyards in the Netherlands, and one at Damen Shipyards in Romania.
The new ships were named “NSC Arkhangelsk”, “NSC Severodvinsk”, and “NSC Novodvinsk” after Russian northern cities and towns.
The 6,500 dwt A1 ice-class 2007-built “NSC Severodvinsk” and 2008-built “NSC Novodvinsk” have a capacity of 256 TEU and can also carry general cargo and timber. The 2002-built 10,500 dwt A1 ice-class “NSC Arkhangelsk” has a capacity of 64 TEU.
The new vessels will be deployed carrying cargo in the Northern Sea Route basin and transporting export designated cargo from St. Petersburg and Arkhangelsk.
