Ice Breaking Ships

An Ice Breaking Ship is designed to sail through heavy ice and provides safe passageways for other boats to sail through. Today’s post is on five amazing Ice Breaking Ships.

It is a South African polar research vessel you wouldn’t expect South Africa to have many ice creaking ships like this but the ship does its job very well. It was specially built with an ice-strengthened hull and designed in such a shape that it quite literally splits the icing too.

4. The U.S. Coast Guard:

The United States Coast Guard operates several ice breaking ships. Mostly around Alaska where ice can often put commercial vessels in jeopardy. One such icebreaker is the CGC Polar Star featured here. The Polar Star is actually a heavy icebreaker. It is designed to clear away very thick ice if necessary, but today it is cutting through medium-sized ocean ice to assist a scientific expedition.

3. CCGs Terry Fox:

It’s fitting that Canada would have some of the best ice breaking ships around. The CCGs Terry Fox is a Canadian Coast Guard heavy icebreaker. It operates in the region of Newfoundland and Labrador and responsible for escorting tankers and commercial vessels through the ice.

2. Baltica:

Acre Arctic is a finished based Arctic technology company that builds special equipment including ice-breaking ships. What we’re looking at here is a new vessel called the Baltica. It is an oblique icebreaker a special type of ice-breaking vessel that can actually break ice going sideways as well as forwards and backward. Oblique icebreakers like this are able to clear larger channels for other ships to sail through.

1. Russian 50 Let Pobedy:

It is the largest nuclear ice-breaking ship in the world. At over 25,000 tons this ship can break through the thickest ice in the Arctic Ocean. It was commissioned in 2007. An insurer’s commercial shipping traffic can safely navigate through the icy waters in northern Russia. The ship has to okay nine hundred nuclear reactors and can operate for almost an entire year before needing to refuel. The ship also incorporates an experimental spoon-shaped bow allowing the vessel to more efficiently cut through ocean ice. Certainly a very impressive vessel.
