The fourth serial universal nuclear icebreaker of project 22220 of the "Arctic" type was laid down in St. Petersburg. The ceremony took place at the Baltic Shipyard, the press service of the Shipyard reports.

The Baltic Shipyard has laid the foundation stone for the next nuclear-powered icebreaker of project 22220, already the fifth in the series and the fourth serial. The vessel, named Chukotka, will be built taking into account new technical solutions tested during tests on the lead icebreaker of the series, Arktika.

It is planned that the third serial icebreaker Yakutia, which was laid down in May, will be delivered to the customer in 2024, and the Chukotka in 2026.

At present, the lead icebreaker of the Arktika series has been handed over to the customer and is already operating in the North. Laid down in 2015, the first serial icebreaker Sibir is to be delivered to the customer in 2021, the second serial Ural, launched in 2016, in 2022. Both are being completed afloat.

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.

A feature of the project 22220 icebreakers is the use of variable draft using ballast tanks. Double-draft ships can operate both in deep water and in shallow water in river beds, breaking through ice up to 3 meters thick without losing speed. According to the design data, the new icebreakers are the largest and most powerful in the world.

        Judging by the way sworn partners grind their teeth at our development of the Arctic, we are on the right path ahead of the rest of the planet.

    The normal series is obtained slowly, but very rhythmically.
    By the way, no one had such a series.

      and for what we minus?
      Indeed, even if you look at Viki, the series of project 10520 has 6 icebreakers.
      This is an absolutely correct comment, and in fact it does not take away the significance of the laying of the fifth nuclear-powered ship, it only emphasizes the joy of this event.

        Well, if you limit yourself to pictures, then you are certainly right. However, Old26 as a respected author needs to be more careful.
        A series of 6, but only 4 were built in the USSR.
        And most importantly, the boats are slightly different, the fuel supply is 10520 4 years against seven in 22220.
        Since the reactors can withstand 5-7 reloads, the lifetime of that project is 20-30 years. And all those built in the USSR have already died. Well, these will survive us.

          Welcome.
          hi
          Agree that the series remained a series, regardless of the fact that Russia completed the commissioning of the two outermost icebreakers (Yamal and 50 years). And if you look more closely, then absolutely all icebreakers for this project were laid down in the USSR. 6 nuclear-powered ships of the old Arctic, against 5 nuclear-powered ships of the current one)).
          Therefore, in this discussion, I am inclined to believe that the position of Vladimir is closer to the essence of the issue.

          But, comrade, I propose to leave this unnecessary dispute, and let's better rejoice for the 5th in the series, because this is our future, as you correctly noted, and not the past drinks

            The Nuclear Icebreaker is a special ship, guess what is celebrated during its construction?
            The correct thing is not launching into the water like others, but installing the reactor.
            let's better rejoice for the 5th in the series, because this is our future, as you rightly noted, and not the past drinks

            I agree. And I can't wait for the rhythm-400 about the future. It will really be a breakthrough.

              hi
              The correct thing is not launching into the water like others, but installing the reactor.

              Well, it celebrates the laying, and the launch, and the installation of the reactor, but still, if in essence, then most likely not the installation of the reactor is the main event, but physical. start. Usually my friends celebrate it. Not even like energetic starting and mooring, but much more abundantly laughing
              I agree. And I can't wait for the rhythm-400 about the future. It will really be a breakthrough.

              Yes, Rhythm-400 is a very interesting project, and given its strong unification with Rhythm-200, I don't foresee big delays, since the main ideas have already been tested. And I take into account the service life of 40 years, with reboots in 7 years - this is the most perfect machine. My opinion, in any case, is this.

              And considering the icebreaker, into which this heart will be installed, it will truly be an unforgettable event. I think, even, to visit the Star on the descent (it's not bad to dream, right?)

              Sincerely,
              hi

    There’s one pebble on the side of all the fighters.
    By the way, Ilyushin-114-300 made its first flight today. So things are going.

      By the way ... "JSC" Admiralty Shipyards "is preparing to launch a unique ice-resistant self-propelled platform (LSP)" North Pole ". The ceremony is scheduled for December 18"
      How many new tasks have to be solved with all this - engines for aircraft, the same turbines for icebreakers - the first Arctic was detained, including because of the turbine ... even if not all at once, but experience is a gain ...

      To be precise, the Il-114 made its first flight
      March 29, 1990, this is a very old Soviet development.
      And most recently, the modernized
      IL-114, with other engines. So no big break
      no, I just needed a "Russian" plane, so they remembered.

    Great news.
    The fifth nuclear-powered ship - to be!
    All those involved with the holiday, drinks
    By the way, the ship fittings have already been contracted, next year at the GI, then the PSI with acceptance, and on the way to the warehouse of the plant. All the equipment is purchased in advance, well done.

    Speech, dear namesake, is somewhat different. When it is really necessary, they always nod at the USSR. Now, suddenly, someone begins to assert that there were no series of nuclear-powered icebreakers in the USSR.
    In fact, a series of 5 was built in the USSR. The fifth - "October Revolution" (then "Yamal") was launched in 1989 and commissioned in 1992, practically in the first year of new Russia. so it can be safely considered built in the USSR.
    I understand very well that the ships are different and I do not put an equal sign between the "Arctic" of the times of the USSR and the modern "Arctic". But other comrades also need to be more accurate and not assert that a series of atomic icebreakers has never existed before.

      I'm not saying there were no episodes. There was a series and a half: 10520 full and folded 10580.
      I mean that SUCH series was not. The series is determined by the size, construction period and service life, and of course the capabilities of the vessels. And this half a century to go with the possibility of extension to 70 years. On the other hand, it is clear that the USSR has gained tremendous experience on which we rely.
      In general, I'm talking about something else, they write that everything ends with R&D or microseries, which carries a lot of negative moments. And I generally wrote that I agree with that. But this is not the case with nuclear icebreakers. The design and production policy is very balanced. Old ships write off new ones replace them. New tasks appear and new ships are designed.

    I am also glad that the names are given not in honor of some events, as in the USSR, although I did not see anything bad in this, but on the geographical basis of our great power. "Arctic", "Siberia", "Ural", "Yakutia", "Chukotka". The old "Yamal" will be written off - a new nuclear icebreaker "Yamal" may appear

      Greetings!
      hi
      It will definitely appear sooner or later. I see that in our time researchers and restless conquerors of peaks are born, which means, as in all ages, Russia will go its own way, despite the meanness on the part of "civilized" gentlemen. And this road lies in the conquest of lands and seas covered with ice and snow, in the permafrost and polar night, under the sky colored with the northern lights and "yuzhak" on the face. Therefore, the new "Yamal" - will be!
