A new multifunctional icebreaking standby vessel (IBSBV) built for the Sakhalin-2 development offshore Russia’s Far East has been named Stepan Makarov.

"The Stepan Makarov will have Saint Petersburg as her home port and is registered under the Russian flag. The main tasks of the vessel are to ensure the safety of the personnel on the offshore oil and gas production platforms of Sakhalin Energy in the Sea of Okhotsk, to respond to emergency spills at sea and to support the company’s operations within its technical capabilities,” said Sakhalin Energy.
