Stuck in ice ships scattered along Northern Sea Route

Nov 5: Cargo ships are scattered all along Northern Sea Route, most of them awaiting icebreaker to be taken through ice. Icebreaker VAYGACH is presently at Pevek Port, bulk carriers NORDIC QINNGUA, GOLDEN PEARL, gen cargo UHL FUSION are led by nuclear icebreaker TAYMYR, all three transiting NSR from Europe to Far East. Bulk carriers NORDIC NULUUJAAK and GOLDEN SUEK stuck in ice, waiting for icebreaker. Gen cargo POOLGRACHT, UHL FAITH, UHL FLASH stuck in ice, waiting for icebreaker, all three transiting from China to Northern Europe. About a dozen Russian cargo ships are also positioned along NSR, either waiting for icebreaker, or trying to find passages in ice floes. More or less autonomous are newly built, highest ice-class, powerful LNG tankers, but let’s not forget, that their operators had to turn to icebreakers too, last winter, after one of them was damaged while transiting NSR autonomously.
