Multi-purpose vessels


Arctia's multi-purpose vessels MSV Fennica and Nordica are unique vessels, even in a global perspective –  powerful icebreakers with characteristics ideal for tasks that require manoeuvrability and precision. As a result, our multi-purpose icebreakers are well suited for highly demanding tasks in oil fields all over the world.

The ships have superb ice-breaking characteristics. They are highly suitable for a wide range of maritime tasks, including those requiring DP capability, towing of merchant vessels in harsh ice conditions and operating on ice management assignments for oil industry in the Arctic.

With the aid of winches, cranes and A-frames, vessels can switch rapidly from one task to another. Ours ships meet the strict regulations and guidelines that govern offshore work.
