Aker Arctic

The Christophe de Margerie, the world's first icebreaking LNG tanker, has successfully completed ice trials and berthed at the gas terminal at Sabetta Port in the Yamal peninsula in Russia.

Aker Arctic developed the Arctic LNG Carrier vessel concept, designed the final hull form together with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and assisted in developing the design of the entire logistics operations in Sabetta. In addition, a comprehensive model test campaign for the vessel was carried out at Aker Arctic.
