Icebreaker Krasin, managed by Far Eastern Shipping Company (FESCO, the base company of the FESCO transport group), has completed the provision of pilotage along the Northern Sea Route in the eastern region of the Arctic, the press service of the shipping company reported.

The icebreaker operated in the eastern region of the Arctic from July 21 to November 13, 2014 at the request of the Federal Agency for Maritime and River Transport of the Russian Federation, providing escort for ships that transport cargo and containers to ports and points in northern Chukotka and Yakutia.

In addition to the icebreaker, ice-class cargo ships of the FESCO were involved in the Arctic transportation of the summer-autumn season of 2014.

The voyages along the Northern Sea Route were made by the universal dry cargo vessels FESCO Pioneer, FESCO Primorye, Ussuri, diesel-electric ship Vasily Golovnin, timber carrier Abakan and a time-charter tanker SCF Amur.
