The fourth nuclear icebreaker of project 22220 laid in the second quarter of this year

The fourth nuclear-powered icebreaker of project 22220 of the Arctic type will be laid down at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg in the second quarter of 2020. This was reported by the press service of the enterprise.


According to the message, the fourth icebreaker will be laid at the Baltic Shipyard from April to June, the exact date has not yet been determined. Information about the laying of the fifth icebreaker has not yet been reported.

The fact that the construction of the fourth and fifth universal atomic icebreakers of Project 22220 will take place at the Baltic Shipyard became known in August this year, after the Shipyard won the bid for the construction of icebreakers. The plant is the only one that has the appropriate facilities and modern equipment for the construction of surface ships with a nuclear power plant.

The contract stipulates that the first icebreaker must be delivered to the customer no later than December 20 of 2024, and the second - no later than December 20 of 2026. Thus, after the delivery of the last production ship, Russia will have the five most powerful nuclear-powered icebreakers in the world for this project.

At present, the lead nuclear icebreaker of project 22220 Arktika is preparing for delivery at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg; transfer to the customer is scheduled for May this year. In addition, the Shipyard is completing the completion of the first and second serial icebreakers of this project - Sibir and Ural. The deadline for the completion of Siberia and the Urals is planned for 2021 and 2022, respectively.

A feature of the 22220 project icebreakers is the use of variable draft using ballast tanks. Double-deck ships can operate both in deep water and in shallow water in river beds, overcoming ice up to 3-meters thick without losing speed.

The main power plant of icebreakers includes two "Rhythm-200" reactors with thermal capacity of 175 MW each. Its main advantage over other similar installations lies in its compactness and economy, as well as energy-efficient integrated layout.

    Well, then the "Leaders" in the Big Stone will be laid.
    This is generally ... there will be a steamboat!
    Nuclear-powered vehicle!

        It’s just not clear how ice will be cleaved from the superstructure?
        This refers to the front part - a sort of designer excess with inclined surfaces.

            Perhaps, in the end, without this excess, it will go into construction.
            The purpose is completely unclear. Airships, what is there to launch inside?
            Length 209,0 m (193,6 on design lines)
            Width 47,7 m (largest) / 38,0 m (on design waterline)
            Height 20,3 m (side height)
            127 crew
            Passenger capacity 12 people

          Probably, there is a heating and ice cleaning system, but these are my speculations.

            The best system is the lack of such a bandura at the very top.
            If I worked in the tropics - no questions!
            In the north, icing is just the norm! Forever!
            Well, how many deck crew are there? Man 10-15?
            To make heating? On ... why? Maybe just do not put such a decoration?
            Still somehow managed.

                    My curiosity is somewhat professional.
                    I am a ship modeller, and besides an engineer. CCM on models of copies of civil courts, 3rd place in Russia in 1966 and 68 and 2nd place in 1980
                    So I know the design of various vessels brilliantly.

                    Honor and praise for such high school results. I have no doubt in your knowledge, but it seems to me that since you built your models, science and technology have gone far ahead. And I think that such a superstructure is not out of the idle beauty of design. there is clearly a practical component based on the use of modern technologies and materials. And everything was taken into account. Personally, I am also interested and curious - what it is, how the service is carried out and what is under it.

          my speculation

          Faithful conjectures. It is more convenient for a comrade to see ice and snow blocks from the deck and mechanisms, than from the top of the superstructure, on which the snow will not fall, because strong winds sweep it away. people inside are more comfortable to work with. A large sail due to this will not hurt them, it is not open water but ice. In our ice, only such units work.

        Do you think that this process on the latest icebreakers will be carried out like on the Yermak icebreaker - crowbars and shovels? But didn’t you think that a nuclear power plant should be enough to simply heat this part of the ship? After all, with such a configuration, it is much easier than warming all these decks, step superstructures and rails, as on ships of the classical scheme.

          In any case, it will not do without it.
          Excessive heat from the reactor is more than useful for the screws. It just leaves to warm the water overboard.
          I just don’t understand what exactly is located under this “decoration”?

            So, do you think crowbars and shovels are ours? Is logic inaccessible to you, or did you decide to portray the troll here? The power of the reactor is sufficient to heat the superstructure. Even aircraft have enough generator power for the anti-icing system. Why do you think you need to warm water overboard? fool This is generally some kind of madhouse.

    How so, what is this next atomic icebreaker? And you will listen to some especially literate liberal "experts", so it turns out that devastation is everywhere, nothing is being built, nothing is working. Poverty and dullness. And atomic icebreakers come from somewhere. And the richest country in the world, with its arctic ambitions, nervously smokes on the sidelines. They probably hope that the Arctic can not be mastered, but as always buy.

      With the withdrawal of the Soviet icebreakers from the composition, I think they will introduce new ones, and most likely this project will be massively increased.
      The fight for the Arctic has just begun ... by the way, the big question is what will happen to the Antarctic.

    Maxim "Russia will have the five most powerful nuclear icebreakers in the world for this project." - It smells like some National Geography.
    Firstly, Russia already has the most powerful icebreakers in the world, and by no means of this project.
    Secondly, the most powerful icebreakers are atomic.
    Thirdly, except Russia, no country has nuclear icebreakers.
    And then from this "curve" phrase you might think that there are some other countries that "have powerful atomic icebreakers" in the world.
    I’m talking about: how a skillfully constructed phrase can pretty much diminish the advantages of an opponent in the eyes of the townsfolk. It seems they didn’t lie, but the accents set up very characteristic.

    "Shipyard won the bid for the construction of icebreakers."
    for what kind of bidding, if "The plant is the only one that has the appropriate capacities and modern equipment for the construction of surface ships with a nuclear power plant."

    And the news is good! I was in Yamal - I saw the Vaigach, albeit from afar, but at work: how he famously spied on solid ice, just beauty!
    And I once saw from the air, one of those that are of the Arctic class, recognized at a time, especially since in childhood I glued a plastic model of the Arctic. I won’t lie who they are, but the superstructure was red, not orange — it went in discharged ice, followed by some sort of “truck” in the wake, and then I didn’t see anymore - I was lucky to see one side that I was lucky to see.
