During the summer navigation of this year the FSUE “Rosmorport” icebreakers were proactively used for supporting a series of research works in the Arctic Basin.

Two icebreakers of the enterprise were involved in arrangement of integrated geological and geophysical research to find grounds for the continental nature of the Mendeleev elevation in the Arctic Sea and to set outer border of the continental shelf of the Russian Federation in the central part of the Arctic Basin.

The Dikson icebreaker of the Arkhangelsk Branch and the Kapitan Dranitsyn icebreaker of the Murmansk Branch took part in the works from early July till early October, the former as a research vessel, and the latter as a research support vessel.

The research itself was conducted in August–September at high latitudes of the East Siberian, Chukchi and Laptev seas in complicated maritime and weather conditions.

In the meantime the Kapitan Kosolapov icebreaker of the Arkhangelsk Branch took part in geophysical research conducted by the Western Trident seismic vessel in Kara Sea, as a support vessel.

At present major research works have been successfully completed, and the icebreakers are on the way back to their ports of registration.
