Yuriy Kuchiev is an icebreaking gas condensate tanker. The vessel utilizes the Finnish innovation of Double acting ship, designed to operate bow first in open water and mild ice conditions and stern first in heavy ice conditions. This allows the ship independent operation without icebreaker escort in demanding conditions in ice-covered seas. The ship can break almost 2-meter-thick ice independently.
