The Company owns tankers  designed for the carriage of bulk liquid cargoes. A feature of these vessels is the increased cargo capacity in conditions of restricted canal draught.

The fleet also operates tankers of  modernized type – chemical carrier, the versatility of which is the ability to transport simultaneously up to 3 different types of cargo (3 segregations). Vessels of this type have increased cargo capacity, increased volume of cargo tanks, superabundant contours providing the maximum load-lifting capacity. Additional stern discharge can be provided.

Fleet and Vessel

Especially for servicing the Arctic Gate terminal, a fleet capable of operating in the Arctic latitudes was built by order of Nafta Engineering Refinery. Six Arc7 tankers with a deadweight of 42 thousand tons and two Arc130A icebreakers of the Icebreaker8 ice class fly under the Russian flag. 

The cargo capacity of Arc7 class tankers is 38 thousand tons of oil, they are designed taking into account the shallow depths of the Gulf of Ob – the draft in fresh water reaches 9.5 meters. Tankers can independently overcome ice up to 1.8 m thick with stern and up to 1.4 m with bow, and also move in ice along a channel previously prepared by an atomic icebreaker. Increased maneuverability of vessels is provided by propeller-driven columns rotating 360 degrees around its axis. In addition, each vessel is equipped with a bow loading device that allows you to attach, hold the tanker and receive oil.

Icebreakers of the ice class Icebreaker 8 are capable of operating at temperatures up to -50 degrees. The ship’s project successfully passed model tests in the HSVA ice basin in Hamburg and the seaworthiness laboratory of the Krylovsky State Research Center in St. Petersburg. Icebreakers with a capacity of 22 MW have a length of about 122 m, the width of the main deck (including fenders) – 26 m, draft – 8 m.
The first icebreaker, Alexander Sannikov, was launched at the Vyborg Shipyard on November 24, 2016. In 2018, he, together with the second similar vessel – Andrey Vilkitsky, were transferred to Nafta Engineering Refinery after technical equipment and necessary tests.
“Andrey Vilkitsky” and “Alexander Sannikov” provide a safe approach for tankers to the Arctic terminal and are able to perform a wide range of tasks in severe ice conditions: mooring operations, towing, protection of the “Arctic Gate” from shock impacts of ice.
