Oil tanker collides with ice-breaker

Oil tanker collides with ice-breaker
An oil tanker collided with a nuclear-powered ice-breaker in the part of the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia known as the Kara Sea.

An oil tanker collided with a nuclear-powered ice-breaker in the part of the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia known as the Kara Sea.

An oil tanker collided with a nuclear-powered ice-breaker in the part of the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia known as the Kara Sea two weeks ago.

Reports quoted the Russian Ministry of Transport saying that the state-run ice-breaker Yamal collided with the tanker Indiga during an ice escort procedure on March 16 in the Gulf of Yenisey.

The Russian-flagged 1976-built 15,954 dwt Indiga is owned, managed and operated by Russia's Murmansk Shipping Company.

The Indiga sustained a 9.5 metre crack on its main deck from the collision.

No damage has been reported to the Yamal's reactor.

The Indiga was apparently on a ballast leg during the incident and authorities have reported no spillage or pollution.

The Indiga moves crude and products between a Gulf of Ob oil terminal and the Belokamenka Oil Terminal in Kola Bay.

The 1980-built 360,700 dwt Belokamenka is a Russian owned and operated FSO (floating, storage and offloading vessel).
