Hi everyone. I don't know anything about ships but I really need to know the name of the ship that is in the picture. Google Images have told me that this is an oil tanker, but I don't know anything more... Grin

It is a SA15 standard design, icebreaking general cargo ship built in Finland in the 1980s for the USSR.They were also known as the NORILSK class (after the lead ship) and 19 of them were built. This one's name is KANDALAKSHA and it was bult by Oy Wärtsilä Ab, Turku in 1984.It went to Chinese breakers in 2010

I wrote an article about the ships in Wikipedia some years ago:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SA-15_(ship)

We have a very detailed scale model of Nizhneyansk next to my desk at the office, complete with the hovercraft on deck.
