MSV Fennica is a multifunctional vessel based on a modified icebreaker design with diesel-electric propulsion. The vessel is specially designed for a wide range of offshore related work.

Fennica’s icebreaking capability is excellent. The 15 MW dieselgenerators produce power for two Aqua-master azimuth-thrusters to make the vessel easily manoeuvrable. The Fennica is excellent for DP work, all kinds of marine operations and in harsh icy conditions for towing merchant vessels.

The vessel is designed to carry out offshore installation tasks and can be equipped for laying pipes, cables and umbilicals. The optional 120T SWL A-frame is well suited for deploying trenching machines and ploughs. Her large bollard pull and strong winches make the Fennica ideal for ploughing operations and towing.

With the main components such as winches, cranes and A-frame already installed, a change of function can be achieved rapidly. Fennica meets all the stringent rules and regulations for offshore work.
