Repaired nuclear icebreaker "Arktika" went for testing in the Gulf of Finland
The lead universal nuclear icebreaker "Arktika" of project 22220 entered sea trials after the replacement of the electric motor of the right propeller shaft. According to the press service of the Baltic Shipyard, the icebreaker set off for the Gulf of Finland.
"Arktika" will undergo acceptance tests after scheduled maintenance and replacement of the electric motor. After signing the final documents, the icebreaker will go back to Murmansk to continue work on the Northern Sea Route. Note that on November 16, the first serial icebreaker of project 22220 "Siberia" entered the Gulf of Finland for factory sea trials.
The icebreaker Arktika arrived at the Kronstadt Marine Plant in August, where the propeller shaft electric motor was replaced. To do this, the ship repairers had to cut out part of the outer skin. After completing all the necessary work, as well as servicing the icebreaker's hull, "Arktika" was taken out of the dock and, with the help of tugs, transferred to St. Petersburg to the "Baltiyskiy Zavod". The final adjustment and adjustment of the systems was carried out at this enterprise.
The icebreaker with an already serviceable electric motor of the right propeller shaft was supposed to go for testing in mid-October, at least that was announced in September.
The lead icebreaker "Arktika" of project 22220 was laid down in November 2013, launched on June 16, 2016 and put into operation on October 21, 2020. At the same time, the transfer of the ship took place with an emergency electric motor with power limitations "under certain guarantees and obligations." The icebreaker received damage to the right propeller motor as a result of mooring tests in December 2019.
