Countdown to Collision: Arctic Icebreaker

This vessel is an icebreaking oil tanker – and her crew of 25 have just five days to collect 70,000 tonnes of Russian Crude oil from a one-of-a-kind oil platform in the Barents Sea. But, between their starting point of Murmansk and their end goal lies 1000km of Arctic Ocean and kilometers of ship-destroying ice. Stunning CGI animations reveal the inventions that assist the ship’s crew in reaching the terminal and returning laden with oil. A unique epoxy skin enables the ship to slide through thick ice, her tanks are fitted with an inert gas system that prevents oil vapours from exploding, an ice radar assits the crew in navigating around deadly ice ridges and a $1million valve connects the ship to the platform – allowing a fire engine tank’s worth of oil to pass from the platform every second. In the isolated, ice-covered oceans of the Arctic, will these innovations help the crew of the Timofey Guzhenko accomplish their mission on time and avert a catastrophic COUNTDOWN TO COLLISION?
