USC announced the deadline for transferring the nuclear icebreaker "Arktika"

The lead universal nuclear icebreaker of project 22220 "Arktika" is planned to be handed over to the customer in September. This was announced by the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov.


Answering a question from journalists about the timing of the transfer of the nuclear icebreaker "Arktika" to the customer, Rakhmanov said that according to plans, the transfer should take place in September this year.

I think the ship will be delivered to the customer in September

- he said.

In July of this year, it was reported that the next stage of sea trials of the icebreaker had been completed, after which it returned to the Baltic Shipyard. It was noted that the ship entered trials with a damaged right-hand propeller motor as a result of mooring tests in December 2019.

The icebreaker will be delivered to the customer with an emergency electric motor with power limitations "under certain guarantees and obligations". The replacement of the emergency electric motor on the icebreaker is planned to be carried out during docking in Kronstadt in August 2021.

The Arctic nuclear icebreaker is the lead vessel of Project 22220 in a series of three vessels being built at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg under a contract with Rosatom.

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.

      Sumvolt, how did you take it? There generally seems to be a lifelong disability laughing
      There is nothing wrong with that, they will fix it. Everyone has difficulties, who produces something new. It is only easy to scratch with tongues.

        And the result of the mooring tests in 2019, when the right-hand propeller engine was "shocked", also a jamb before mass production?

    Why not replace the electric motor right away?

      ========
      Because such engines do not valve on the conveyor: "piece" products! It's a long time to wait for something new. And since the rest of the systems work as usual, they decided not to "drag out the concert", but to conduct tests with "restrictions". The engine will be ready - will be replaced in the dock.

      They will make engines for the next icebreaker, then they will order for this repair.

      It will then be a year shift. During this time, a fully operational vessel will then stand and take place and will not do its job. request It's not profitable for anyone to pickle it for a year.

      Welcome.
      To replace the right HED, the icebreaker must be docked, the hull must be opened, this procedure will take at least six months. Therefore, after discussions, it was decided that it would be operated for a year with limited capacity. Plus, an electric motor instead of a failed one will be made in 2021, and it is irrational to take from others. Proceeding from this, they apparently decided to let him run with a limit of 40 MGV, and practice will work out.

      Because by the time the acceptance certificate is signed, the shipyard's money for the construction must be paid in full. A private customer would send such a builder with a forest until the problems are eliminated, and even frenzied penalties would be rolled out for delay.
      But here the customer is state, he will do it as ordered.

    .. The bosses have already awarded themselves a prize in connection with pushing a new broken icebreaker to the customer .. Well, okay .. - there is a lot of experience in navigating ships with broken propeller shafts in the Arctic .. If anything, the nine-storey superstructure has good windage .. Now you can take on a floating cosmodrome ...

    Isn't it cheaper to build a northern railway instead of the icebreaker fleet?

      Not. Not cheaper. It will have to be shifted every summer - it will drown in the tundra .. The eternal permafrost is thawing, and the road is sinking. Every year the road from Norilsk to the Dudinsky port is restored ... so that Norilsk Nickel could transport its products.

    "It was noted that the ship entered trials with a damaged right-hand propeller motor as a result of mooring tests in December 2019."
    Strange story ...
    How can the propeller motor be damaged during mooring trials? ..
    Why is it not replaced at the same plant? ...
    Mooring tests - it was stupidly threw the steamer into the water, checked the hull for leaks / leaks, the same shafting. Inspection group with the Register to the pile. Or the military representative. If the ship is military. Nobody starts any engines and units. The mechanisms are checked during running trials.
    We immediately check for leaks hatches, portholes, etc.

      Before entering the running gear, you need to check if the motors are spinning at all. Drive at low speeds back and forth.
      There seems to be a type of interturn closure.

        The article deals with damage during mooring tests.
        What are mooring tests, I have outlined in general.
        If there are no propellers, then damaging the engine located in the icebreaker's hull when launching is nonsense! ..
        How does he plan to chop ice? ..
