    November 3, 2015 at Vyborg Shipyard (CEO Alexander Solovyov) hosted the ceremonial laying of the keel of icebreaker supply vessel capacity of 22 MW Class Icebreaker Project 8 IBSV01 (building number 233), "Alexander Sannikov." The ship is named in honor of the untimely deceased head of management of oil refining "Gazprom oil".

    Russia's new diesel electric icebreakers to be tested in Northern Sea Route — shipyard

    Performance data of vessels can only be tested in extreme conditions

    ST. PETERSBURG, April 5. /TASS/. The new Vladivostok and Murmansk diesel electric icebreakers built at the Vyborg Shipyard will undergo trials in harsh environment of the Northern Sea Route, Chief Executive of the Shipyard Alexander Solovyov told TASS on Tuesday.

    "We need heavy ice; we will look for ice ridges and thick fast ice. Performance data of vessels can only be tested in extreme conditions," Solovyov said.

    Vessels departed today from the Gulf of Finland to Murmansk and then to water areas in the West Arctic Sector, where attainable speed in ice and operation of engines and mechanisms will be tested.

    New icebreakers have improved characteristics with addressed track record of prior series vessels. Their primary tasks are independent escorting of heavy-tonnage vessels, fire extinguishing at floating installations and other structures, assistance to ships in distress and carriage of useful load.

    Russia's New 'Arktika' Nuclear Icebreaker to Be Floated Out Within 3 Weeks

    Russia's new Project 22220 nuclear-powered icebreaker dubbed "Arktika" is world’s largest and most powerful vessel of its kind.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Russia's new Project 22220 nuclear-powered icebreaker dubbed "Arktika" will be launched in less than three weeks, United Shipbuilding Corporation President Alexei Rakhmanov said Tuesday.

    "The date has not yet been finalized, but this event will take place within the next two or two and a half weeks," Rakhmanov told reporters.

    The corporation currently plans to build two more icebreakers of the series, he added.

    Earlier in May, the director general of Russia's nuclear icebreaker fleet operator Rosatomflot said that Arktika will be launched from the Baltic Shipyard in the summer of 2016 ahead of its late 2017 planned launch. Nuclear fuel for the vessel's RITM-200 nuclear-power reactors is to be produced by the TVEL fuel company by the end of the year.

    Built by the United Shipbuilding Corporation, project 22220 is world’s largest and most powerful vessel of its kind. The vessel is 189.5 yards long and 37.1 yards wide. The ship displaces 33,540 metric tons. Fitted with two specifically designed RITM-200 nuclear-power reactors, the new vessels will be able to escort convoys in the Arctic, breaking ice up to 10 feet thick and 13 feet deep.

    In 2014, the Baltic Shipyard signed a contract worth 84.4 billion rubles ($1.2 billion) with Rosatom to build two Project 22220 icebreakers by 2020. The ships will be commissioned in December 2019 and December 2020 respectively.

    Russia Unveils New Navy Icebreaker in Arctic Military Focus





    Russia on Friday floated a new icebreaker for its navy, the first in about 45 years, in a further sign of Moscow's growing military focus on the Arctic.

    Built at the Admiralty Shipyards in Saint Petersburg, Russia's second largest city and home to its Baltic fleet, the Ilya Muromets is the first of a series of icebreakers ordered by the defense ministry in recent years.

    "In 2017 this icebreaker will join the Northern Fleet to ensure our priorities in the northern basin," Admiral Igor Zvarich, who heads the technical department of the Russian navy, said during the ceremony.

    The Ilya Muromets is an 85-meter (280-feet) long electric-diesel powered icebreaker with a deadweight of 6,000 tons and is designed to help the deployment of the navy in icy conditions as well as escort or tow other ships.

    It can cut through ice of up to one meter thick and travel the entire 5,600 kilometer (3,500 mile) length of the Northern Passage, according to the defense ministry.

    "Until now we didn't have military icebreakers," said Igor Korotchenko, a pro-Kremlin pundit who edits National Defence magazine.

    "It is necessary for the smooth movement of warships and support ships of the Northern Fleet, for delivering cargo to military bases," he told AFP.

    Biggest icebreaker fleet

    Interest in the Arctic has grown in recent years as rising temperatures open up shipping routes and make hitherto inaccessible mineral resources easier to exploit.

    Russia has made the region a priority in its new military doctrine, building a string of bases and holding war games there at a time when parts of the polar region are contested by different nations.

    Last year Russia filed a claim in the United Nations over a vast swathe of the region, including the North Pole. The government estimates that the Arctic shelf contains some 4.9 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons.

    Speaking at a conference on Thursday, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who oversees the defense sector, said the government also plans to refurbish its Arctic air force and even build a testing range for new technology developed for the harsh climate.

    Alexander Khramchikhin, an analyst at the Institute for Political and Military Analysis, said Russia's fleet of icebreakers is already bigger than that of other countries combined.

    As the Arctic becomes more open to navigation and exploration, "it will need to have military cover," he told AFP.

    The Ilya Muromets is just the first of several icebreakers to be completed in Russia in the coming years.

    Last month the Admiralty Shipyards signed a new contract with the defense ministry for two Arctic corvettes, capable of acting as ice breakers, which will be armed with cruise missiles and delivered in 2020.

    Construction for those two ships will begin in the autumn, said company chief Alexander Buzakov.

    Russia's Rosatom nuclear agency, which manages the country's fleet of nuclear-powered icebreakers, is also expecting three new ships, including the world's biggest and most powerful icebreaker called Arktika, which will be floated next week.

    Remarks:if the WIKI can be trusted then the next generation nuclear icebreaker will has as strong reactors as an aircraft carrier.

    So, the reactor design can be used in aircraft carriers.
