MAJOR PROJECTS / ICEBREAKER ALTE. IRIZAR

The Reconstruction and modernization of ARA Almirante Irízar in CINAR, will be a benchmark of Argentina´s naval industry history and a turning point in the Complex biograph. This project is unprecedented in our country and throughout Latin America in view of the fact that, it is the first time ever an extremely complex work as developing a new icebreaker is carried out.


RECONSTRUCTION AND MODERNIZATION  
ICEBREAKER IRIZAR

Focused on adapting the Irizar to modern times, changes were made to the original blueprints in order to meet all international environmental care treaties. Moreover, a decision was made to classifying the vessel by prestigious company Det Norske Veritas (DNV) of Norway. In addition, emphasis was placed on the transformation to a top scientific icebreaker, without losing its attributes of being a logistic and Antarctic rescue ship.


THE PROJECT

In November 2009 the shipyard started the scrapping of 860 tons of debris caused by the incident and, in July 2010 works began on the icebreaker.
