Icebreaker Botnica

Received this stamp through postcrossing from Ms. Mirja, Finland.

Botnica is one of the four stamps on theme - "Icebreakers" issued by Finland on September 07, 2005.

Botnica is a multipurpose icebreaker and is considered to be the most advanced state-of-the-art vessel of her type. She was built at Aker Finnyards in Finland to Det Norske Veritas class standards. In the winter months, she returns to her main task as an icebreaker, keeping southern Finland's waterways and coastlines open to commercial traffic.
