USCG Healy icebreaks for Russian-flagged tanker
The 420-foot Coast Guard Cutter Healy creates a return path in the Bering Sea ice to assist the Russian-flagged tanker Renda 165 miles south of Nome, Alaska, Jan. 8, 2012. The cutter Healy and tanker Renda have been making way to Nome through the Bering Sea ice for two days to deliver more than 1.3 million gallons of fuel Nome. The fuel could arrive in Nome sometime around Sunday, depending on the progress through the ice. Vitus Marine CEO Mark Smith says his team is putting their efforts towards the final delivery in Nome.
