Aiviq: Monster Arctic ice buster spotted heading south…

Every now & then an unusual vessel will cross our waters and warrant some BDB research! A spokesman from the ship's builder mentions that this $200 mil giant ice breaker recently built in Louisiana and commissioned by Shell Oil is considered… 

 "the largest vessel ever built by Chouest, and will be among the most advanced and powerful, non-military icebreakers on the waters."
