Offshore ice-resistant stationary loading terminal (FOIROT) "Varandey"

Offshore ice-resistant stationary loading terminal (FOIROT) "Varandey", weighing about 14,000 tons, was built at the plant for 15 months – beginning March 2006 and ending 1 July 2007.  FOIROT is installed in the Barents Sea and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most northerly year-round oil terminal in the world. While sliding we managed to set a world record : we operated simultaneously the greatest number – 432 – of axle lines of SPMT (lines necessary for sliding operation).
