The head universal icebreaker "Arctic" has completed sea trials

The main nuclear-powered icebreaker of project 22220 Arktika completed the next stage of sea trials and returned to the Baltic Shipyard. It is reported by Shipbuilding.info.


The icebreaker went on sea trials in the Baltic Sea on June 23. During the tests, it was planned to check the operation of mechanisms and equipment, test the rowing electrical installation and maneuverability, rescue equipment, navigation systems. It was noted that the ship went to the test with a damaged right-hand propeller motor as a result of mooring tests in December 2019.

Earlier it was reported that after the completion of the stage of sea trials and return to the Baltic Shipyard, the icebreaker will be handed over to the customer with an emergency electric motor with power limitations "under certain guarantees and obligations." It is planned to replace the emergency electric motor at the icebreaker during the docking in Kronstadt in August 2021.

The Arctic nuclear-powered icebreaker is the lead ship of the 22220 project in a series of three vessels being built at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg under a contract with Rosatom. The series also included the Siberia and Ural icebreakers, which were launched and completed afloat. The icebreaker delivery dates are 2021 and 2022 of the year, 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. According to project data, new icebreakers will become the largest and most powerful in the world.

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.

      New race and bickering over Arctic minerals. After some time, the main players will also begin to urgently lay icebreakers, because many people want to bite their chunk from this greasy cake.

    Specially climbed on the right propeller. Three shaft lines, for three screws of a fixed pitch. For each shaft line TWO electric motors. So the Arctic will tend to the right. But there is a navigator and a captain on the bridge. They will be primed. And Matvienko at the baptism exactly from the first times a bottle of champagne on board broke? Always more than seven feet under the keel.

    Now it will have to be removed through the bottom with a cut body. Horror in one word.

    With the color of the superstructure in the new Arctic, I consider this a puncture. Not the best color against the background of ice and weather in the Arctic latitudes. They will repaint the normal color of atomic icebreakers. Orange or burgundy. Icebreakers may have a different color, like Arctic Red.

    All the same, I do not catch up. Here the caravan floats behind the icebreaker along the NSR and then op - the engine broke at one of the ships in the caravan. What to do? How to repair? In a warm sea, it’s clear - we are waiting for mechanics with spare parts or a tug to sail to the nearest port. And then what to do? Freeze in the ice? Or stop the whole caravan? And how to tow it, anyway?
    In short, I drank some of this SMP, as for me, it is not surprising that no one uses it, such risks in a banal accident.

      The icebreakers at the stern have a "hole" in which the bow of the emergency ship is started. The emergency ship is moored from the icebreaker. All this is tightly squeezed. And this locomotive merrily moves to the destination point. If I am not mistaken, this operation is called "take on the mustache", but I'm not sure because icebreakers have their own nuances in their work.

        What a horror.
        That is, this poor icebreaker must somehow hook the ship in the middle of the caravan, then squeeze it and drag it along to the end point of the route? And will everyone else stand and watch this circus?

          It’s not terrible, but the technology for navigating ships through the NSR has been worked out for years. I remember only one puncture in the 80s when 2 or 3 steamers were crushed by ice. Just a caravan of ships was sent east, the caravan included a reinforced ice class tanker with 140 000 tons of Novoport Gazpromneft grade oil. It began to be unloaded in China. Gazpromneft switches to year-round navigation to China. Nuclear-powered icebreakers do not work alone for them. They have 2-3 diesel electrics nearby. We can afford it !!!

            Not if there is no choice - and not so raskoryachivatsya possible.
            But when there is a normal path nearby through warm seas with well-established infrastructure ... And all this is of a type to save fuel, and all this savings will fly into the pipe even before the first voyage, since you will have to build icebreaking class ships with the corresponding costs ...

              I’m watching all of the Chinese. Our last year offered to go container carriers from Europe east to the NSR. So, one of the French container shipping operators was very worried about the health of our polar bears and walrus seals. I didn’t go and advised others. So six months later it was bought by the Chinese on the vine. But the Chinese are testing NSR chasing steamers with wind generators on it.
              Holland is being built. Egypt has helped, the price of the Suez passage has lifted up, many have gone around Africa. And if Egypt climbs into Libya, then they will hold the flag in its hands. Then many people will forget about polar bears with walruses.

    It is unfortunate that the chassis came out truncated! Crash with a propeller engine leads to sad thoughts! Repair with engine replacement will also delay the start of operation of this wonderful icebreaker!

      Very uncomfortable downstairs when the body sings in ice. All living quarters and most of the workers were moved to the superstructure: most of the cabins are single (150 cabins), halls, a company cabin, a dining room, music and chess salons, a cinema hall, a swimming pool, a gym, a library, a training class, two saunas, a hairdresser, a large medical area and so on. Well, the ability to move between any rooms of the vessel without access to the open deck.
