The diesel-electric ship "Vasiliy Golovnin" provides the supply of Argentine research stations in Antarctica

According to OJSC Far Eastern Shipping Company, the supply of Argentine research stations in Antarctica until mid-February 2015 will be provided by the diesel-electric ship Vasily Golovnin.

The other day, in Vasiliy Golovnin, in Buenos Aires, he completed the loading of fuel, general cargo, equipment and products, after which he went to Antarctica.

At the moment there is a very complicated ice situation in this region, the ship's captain says: the southern part of the Antarctic Strait is blocked by ice, strong north winds and many icebergs. Access to the first planned station Marumbio is now difficult, so the first call of "Vasily Golovnin" is scheduled for 25 January at the station Orkadas.

Recall that in the framework of tenders of the Ministry of Defense of Argentina, this is the seventh flight of the diesel-electric “Vasily Golovnin” to Antarctica.
