The main results of researching the heavy-tonnage vessels fast-speed escorting by icebreakers performed in ice model tank of Krylov State Research Centre are presented. The experimental data obtained give a sense the effectiveness of marine transportation system. The tests results obtained can be used for development of requirements for ice performance of designed icebreakers and ice-going ships.
