The seals are used to ensure air- and water-tightness as well as EMC, electromagnetic compatibility.

The Yamal LNG (liquefied natural gas) mega-project in the Arctic region of Russia expects to open a new era in Northeast route shipping. The availability of the Arctic Route is, however, limited to a couple of months because of the ice, so a special icebreaking LNG carrier is needed to extend the service period.

Challenging environment

The world's first ARC-7 LNG carrier is currently being constructed by DSME, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering. DSME has chosen Roxtec sealing solutions to meet the demands for environmental and EMI protection. ARC-7 means that the ship is able to break ice that is up to about 2.1 meters thick.

Trusted by ship owners and shipyards

DSME knows that Roxtec is a reliable partner thanks to a long history of working together. DSME encountered obstacles while working on the project, including inquiries in quality, delivery and performance, but was able to solve these issues with Roxtec's excellent quality and strong customer support.

Flexible solution for cable addition

When working on a new project, you often encounter the need for cable additions and reinstallations due to unexpected situations. Problem-solving can be difficult when using existing products. However, using Roxtec transits means you can add and reinstall cables at any time and respond easily to such situations.
