VLADIVOSTOK, December 28 (Itar-Tass) — The South Korean icebreaker Araon, which came to the aid of the Russian trawler Sparta in the Ross Sea (Antarctica), will start piloting it to ice-free waters on Wednesday, Andrei Polomar, general director of the Vladivostok-based company Antei (Antaeus), has told Itar-Tass. The Sparta is part of the company's fleet.
The trawler is currently in the eastern part of the Ross Sea, 3,700 km southeast of New Zealand. Upon getting to ice-free water, the trawler will steer for the port of Lyttelton (New Zealand) for further repairs.
The Sparta is registered at the port of Sovetskaya Gavan (Soviet harbour), Khabarovsk Territory. The ship was built in 1988. The trawler is 55 metres long, and has a deadweight of 846 tonnes; its navigation range is unlimited; the ship's endurance is 50 days.
