The new vessels will be delivered from Helsinki shipyard during spring 2013. Arctech Helsinki Shipyard Oy will build the new vessels for Sakhalin-1 Arkutun-Dagi gas field where they will be used as supply vessels for Exxon Neftegas Limited's platform. Both vessels will be similar measuring 99.2 m in length and 21.7 m in breadth. Their four engines have the total power of 18,000 kW and the propulsion power of 13,000 kW.

These vessels are designed for extreme environmental conditions on the Sakhalin area. They will be operating in thick drifting ice in temperatures as cold as minus 35 C°. The main purpose for these vessels is to supply the gas production platform and to protect it from the ice. The icebreaking capability of the vessels is extremely high, they are able to operate independently in 1.7 meter thick ice.

As multipurpose vessels, these vessels are capable of carrying various type of cargo and they are equipped for oil combating, fire fighting, and rescue operations. The rescue capacity is for 195 persons.
