Icebreaker "Ilya Muromets" will be transferred to the fleet 30 November

Raising the flag on the icebreaker of the new generation “Ilya Muromets” (project 21180), which was built for the Russian Navy, will take place on November 30, reports RIA News Post press service Admiralty shipyards.

On November 2017, XNUMX, the Admiralty Shipyards will host a ceremony to raise the flag of the Auxiliary fleet The Russian Navy on the icebreaker Ilya Muromets, the release said.

It is reported that "a new multi-purpose vessel is intended for icebreaking support for basing and deploying fleet forces in ice conditions, self-guiding ships and vessels, as well as their towing support in ice conditions."

The 21180 icebreaker is a new generation vessel with new principles of electric propulsion and a modern power plant. The steering propellers are mounted on it outside the hull of the vessel with the help of a hinge mechanism and can rotate around the vertical axis 360 degrees, which allows the icebreaker to move freely with the bow, stern or side.

"Ilya of Murom" was laid in April 2015 of the year, launched in June 2016 of the year. The vessel will be used to support the activities of the Arctic grouping of the Russian Navy. Its length is 85 meters, the width is 20 meters, the draft is 7 meters, the speed is 15 knots, the ice-breaking capacity is 1 meters. Crew - 32 person.

    What time! We are following the US path - “new principles of electric propulsion!” Have you even introduced physicists to these principles? There are probably two streams of electrons, and some run along the green light of the traffic light, while others are only across, and the red light? ??

      ... More precisely, 2 screws per azipode. One pushes, the other pulls soldier

      You do not understand anything in electric movement. There, in the bow, heating elements from electric kettles (Chinese) are installed. So they then melt the ice and allow you to move forward. laughing good This is "electric movement".

        Nah, Chinese teapots are not listed. The idea was taken away from Professor Feit himself. wink

    The ice penetration of the 1 meter is too small for our northern seas, where, for example, at the mouth of the Yenisei, the ice thickness in winter reaches 2 - 2,5 meters.

    More like an ocean-going tug of ice class. 1 meter of ice is somehow not serious, if only for the Baltic.

      The fleet! They would be happy to automate, but you cannot assign the same BJ to automation. smile
