Recently, the Vladimir Weizer vessel of COSCO SHIPPING LNG Yamal project achieved a new breakthrough in the ice-breaking journey. It crossed the Bering Strait from Sabetta Port through the Arctic waterway, and sailed through the ice layer of 100cm thick for the first time in winter. On January 3 The company successfully arrived at Rudong Port in Jiangsu, unloading 153,000 cubic meters of natural gas, helping to ensure the supply of natural gas in winter at the fastest speed, reflecting the company's efficient and stable emergency supply guarantee capability.

The traditional summer transportation window of the Arctic waterway is generally from July to November. The ice layer is relatively thin and navigation is convenient. From January to February, my country ushered in the peak of gas supply. In order to ensure the orderly and efficient operation of key nodes in winter, Shanghai COSCO SHIPPING LNG tracked market demand and weather changes, strengthened operation management, and opened up a "green channel" on ice. Faced with the new challenge of ice layer thickness of 100CM, the energy people did not back down. They actively coordinated with relevant parties, carried out various assessments, and prepared comprehensive plans. Pay close attention to the forecasts and ice monitoring of the Arctic waterways by the Russian Arctic waterway management authorities, and get navigation support from the authorities. Considering the particularity of this route, safety assurance is essential, COSCO SHIPPING LNG Shanghai has established a close information transmission and communication mechanism with project partners in the early stage, and has organized several meetings to analyze the possible risks and hidden dangers item by item. Sort out possible emergencies and organize emergency drills. During the navigation process, in addition to setting up special personnel to monitor the daily dynamics of the ship, at risk points such as epidemic prevention and control and equipment safety, the ship management unit is urged to strictly implement the company and industry-related safety measures, and actively raise and scientifically deploy icebreaker escorts. , to ensure a foolproof sailing.

This time through the Arctic waterway in winter, it saved nearly 13,400 kilometers compared with the conventional Suez Canal route, saved more than 20 days of sailing time, and greatly reduced the fuel cost. At present, the operation of 7 Yamal project ships (3 ice area and 4 conventional ships) owned by Shanghai COSCO SHIPPING LNG is stable, and will continue to provide more efficient and safe transportation services to meet the national energy demand.
