According to a spokesman for the US Navy, the buoys in the Beaufort Sea were planned to be lifted by the US Coast Guard icebreaker USCGC Healy, but its engine burned out. The exact cause of the fire is currently unknown.

Due to the fire on the icebreaker, the United States had to turn to the Norwegian authorities to involve the icebreaker KV Svalbard in the work.

USCGC Healy is one of only two operational icebreakers in the US Coast Guard fleet, along with the 45-year-old USCGC Polar Star heavy icebreaker. More than 50 icebreakers are currently in operation in Russia, some of which are nuclear powered.
