    Well they would be used to open the passage for the navy ships so it can be discussed here.

    The nuclear icebreakers needed for the LNG export.

    The Russian LNG terminals are in the Yamal, they need the icebreakers to reach Japan/Asia in economical transit times.


    At the moment the LNG export of Russia is about 55 bcm, equivalent of the Nord Stream II capacity.

    They plan to double it, and increase even more after 2030, and for the investment/ operation they need lot of icebreaker support.

    By the late 20s to early 30s they will be producing large volumes of copper, coal, and oil from the far north too. The growth in the icebreaking requirement will be considerable.

    Why are we discussing Railroads and rail wheels on the "Icebreakers" tread?

    Speaking of icebreakers, construction of the Yevpaty Kolovrat (project 21180M) is progressing very well at Almaz shipyard. It has been painted very recently.

    That is interesting... I read they are putting lasers on their Icebreakers and I assumed it would be for weakening the ice ahead of the icebreaker so it can break it up more efficiently and go faster or go through thicker ice than it would be capable of without the laser...

    But it is actually about oil and fuel spills in the arctic region which are normally very difficult to deal with.

    This laser essentially burns the oil or diesel or kerosene or any other hydrocarbon spill and destroys it in place to prevent it remaining a hazard and injuring wildlife.

    Nice.

    Assorted posts unrelated to Russia have been moved to the general chat section from this icebreakers thread and the arctic rush thread... if there are enough posts of each it will be split into separate threads but we will see how much chat there is first.

    BTW if you have posts that appear to just disappear if you find something you have posted or go to your own profile pages you can do a search for everything you have posted and find the posts that way if they have been moved.
