Polar station "North Pole-41" continues to drift in the ice of the Arctic Ocean

The Russian drifting polar station "North Pole-41", which arrived at the wintering site and froze into the ice in early October this year, continues to drift along with the polar ice. This was reported in the official TG channel of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute.

For almost three months of drifting in the Arctic Ocean, the North Pole LSP covered 488 nautical miles along with the ice. All this time, members of the expedition conducted research and observations within the framework of the scientific program. The expedition consists of 27 scientists + platform crew.

As of December 26, the total length of the route was 488 nautical miles, and the length of the general drift was 188 nautical miles.

- said in the message of the institute.

As previously reported, the LSP "North Pole" arrived in the area of ​​the New Siberian Islands at the end of September, where it drifted. The platform was secured with ropes, it serves as a camp for the Russian drifting polar station "North Pole-41". The opening of the station took place on October 2, 2022 at 7 am at a point with coordinates 82°37' north latitude and 155°31' east longitude. The flag of the expedition was raised over the ice.

The ice-resistant self-propelled platform of project 00903 is an all-season research platform with the functionality of a research center. Designed for year-round scientific research in the Arctic Ocean.

The ship will be able to carry out geological, acoustic, geophysical and oceanographic observations, move in ice without the involvement of an icebreaker (ice class Arc8), receive helicopters of the Mi-8AMT (Mi-17) type. Length - 83,1 m; width - 22,5 m; displacement - about 10390 tons; power plant - 4200 kW; speed - at least 10 knots; autonomy in terms of fuel reserves - about 2 years; service life - not less than 25 years. The crew of the ship - 14 people + 34 scientific personnel.

        Come on, there are luxury conditions. For the north of course. This is not the Papaninites in tents. But still, kudos to the guys.

      Why wasn't such a steamboat invented 50-60 years ago?
      Good thought comes after?

    An interesting and necessary project.
    It is necessary to see how the platform will behave after the first wintering in the ice.

        You are dialing the LSP "North Pole" Goradar and no news is needed. Routine work is in progress. By the way, 25 thousandths will be ordered for the State Weather Service, for the Arctic and Antarctic supply of research stations. 25 thousand tons of tonnage is a very serious "barn".

    An interesting project of the ship, autonomy is almost space. Didn't know he was already working hard. There is really no "analogues" here. Good luck in science!

      May you be! At present, apparently there really are no analogues, but in fact, a worthy descendant of "Fram" Nansen.

    Eh, romanticism is gone now ... not like before - they landed among the bears with a supply of dry food for six months and a battery-operated walkie-talkie and spin as you like.

      Uh-huh... r-r-romantic. wink
      As a result of a six-day storm at 8 am on February 1, the field was torn apart by cracks from half a kilometer to five in the station area. We are on a fragment of a field 300 meters long and 200 meters wide. Two bases were cut off, as well as a technical warehouse ... There was a crack under the living tent. We will move to the snow house. Coordinates will inform additionally today; If the connection is interrupted, please do not worry.
