The atomic icebreaker Ural, which has completed the tests, is preparing to move to Murmansk for transfer to the customer

The universal nuclear-powered icebreaker "Ural" of project 22220, built at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg, has completed factory sea trials. The nuclear-powered ship spent a little more than two weeks in the waters of the Gulf of Finland and returned to the Baltic Shipyard.


The program of testing the icebreaker "Ural" ended after two weeks of being in the waters of the Gulf of Finland, the outfitting embankment of the Baltic Shipyard "Ural" left on October 14. During this time, the commissioning team of the enterprise and the crew of the icebreaker carried out all the necessary tests of the devices and mechanisms of the nuclear-powered ship, and also checked its seaworthiness.

Currently, the Ural has returned to the outfitting embankment of the Baltic Shipyard, where the correction of the comments identified during the sea trials will take place. After that, the icebreaker will go to Murmansk, where the ceremony of handing over the Ural to the customer will take place. Terms are not called, but it will happen in the near future, the transfer is scheduled for November.

The universal nuclear icebreaker "Ural" is the second serial and third icebreaker of project 22220, built to provide year-round navigation along the Northern Sea Route. Laid down at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg on July 25, 2016, launched on May 25, 2019, after which it was completed afloat. The reactor plant was launched in May this year.

The main power plant of the icebreakers includes two Ritm-200 reactors with a thermal power of 175 MW each, the reactors have a service life of 40 years. A feature of the icebreakers of project 22220 is the use of variable draft with the help of 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.

      We wish the icebreaker many years of trouble-free work for the benefit of Russia.

      This is exactly what I wanted to write: I hope there are AK-630s and a couple of Calms carefully hidden under the manhole covers - to meet with especially annoying "partners" and "friends"?

        Where are they in the ice? There are no icebreakers either.

            It doesn’t roll either - the British special forces in Norway at -15 refused to leave the barracks, because the diapers were frozen. And at minus 40, the lollipop doesn’t turn around either - it’s impossible to fight at all

          Is there really ice there? Last year, a bunch of bloggers posted photos of a blooming green area in the Arctic Circle in winter.

            This is a secret covered with cancer. If earlier Jen Psaki could clarify the geography of, for example, the Rostov Mountains in the office, now they can’t do this in the USA either, the current one is “not to answer questions, but because she is a black lesbian”, so for sure - ice, bears with balalaikas and each has a nuclear reactor hi
            But seriously, it is easier to move through permafrost through a frozen one than through a melted swamp. One dog all-terrain vehicle needed

      For now, I highly doubt it...

      For the question is REAL and EFFECTIVE, the protection of such platforms (and any surface Russian platforms, including such a "critical infrastructure" as the floating nuclear power plant "Akademik Lomonosov") from the attack of underwater saboteur robots, both on the route along the Northern Sea Route, and in the parking lot, absolutely "raw". Bye...

      A couple of days ago, in the Sevastopol Bay, to the aid of the Black Sea Fleet, this time, a "lucky coincidence" came - the weather is good, there is no excitement, etc., and the vigilance of the sailor on duty Artyom Zhiltsov, "armed" ... with sea binoculars. After that, the enemy underwater robots-saboteurs who attacked the surface ships were hit by firing at them from automatic weapons by PERSONNEL from the side of the ship.

      Let's just say that no adequate "automatics" of Russian design and Russian production, "did not take part" in detecting the attack of underwater enemy saboteur robots and their defeat. And this is very disturbing...

      After all, the Russian icebreaker fleet is weak to God, the most perfect and numerous in the world. Rossi has no competitors in this area.

      Behind this, it is not difficult to assume that the enemies of Russia will make every effort to “nullify” Russian superiority in this area and the resulting dominance in the strategically important region of the Arctic ...

    So who is the owner of the Arctic part of the Arctic Ocean? First:

    Yes, we give odds to other countries on nuclear icebreakers! The main thing is to build up the icebreaker fleet and the development of the Arctic! She is the future!

      It would be more correct not to build ships and platforms for the north in the Baltic, but to build at the northern shipyards

        So far, the most developed dock for icebreakers, unfortunately, is in the Baltic. But they're trying to change the situation.

    and also checked its seaworthiness.
    How can you check seaworthiness in the Gulf of Finland? They would have checked on Ladoga. I watched the passage of the first icebreaker of this series "Arktika", so there was a wave in the northern sea, wow. Here is the check.
