Vyborg Shipyard laid the icebreaker and launched a unique press for bending metal

12 December 2012 of the year, ahead of the schedule, a solemn ceremony was held to lay the linear diesel-electric icebreaker of the 21900 project M. The ship is being built by order of the Federal Agency of Maritime and River Transport.
The solemn ceremony was attended by representatives of USC OJSC, the Federal Agency of Maritime and River Transport, FSUE "Rosmorport", FAA "RMRS". By tradition, a mortgage board was installed on the inset section of the vessel. The ceremony of laying the icebreaker ended with the solemn launch of a unique press for bending sheet metal. The press develops an effort up to 1000 tons and is capable of bending sheet metal parts with a thickness of 50 mm and more.

“Before this, the plant had the opportunity to bend parts with a thickness up to 20 mm, and the maximum force was equal to 450 tons. With the reorientation of the company to the construction of icebreakers, where the thickness of the outer skin reaches 40-50 mm, the plant is faced with the problem of bending such parts. Thanks to the commissioning of this press, the Vyborg Shipyard will be able to work with a sheet of metal of the required thickness, ”commented Alexander Solovyov, General Director of Vyborg Shipyard OJSC.

The linear diesel-electric icebreaker of the 21900M project will be completed in October of the 2015 year.

    Well done authors! They are following the progress of the icebreaker project! This is not the first article to be published. Well, it seems to me that the construction should take place under the strict control of the customer. And without any kickbacks or price increases. For corruption under the current production system is omnipotent!

      I read your speech about corruption, and I can still hear in the background music from a patriotic American action movie. And so, beautiful, only a question, why not atomic?

          Good day to all. Well, each ship has its own purpose from here and the type is chosen. This icebreaker will work on the pilotage of ships on the ice, but the new ones will master new routes.

          Judging by the information, this is the second of the three planned icebreakers of the 21900M project.
          And in total - this is already the 4th icebreaker laid down in 2012:
          1. Project R-70202
          2. Project 22600
          3. 2 projects 21900M

        we are talking about corruption,

        1. Do not understand the Kazakh logic of circulation? What are you talking about? 2. If you do not know, then this project is a little different. I will explain !!! For work in mixed, river-sea areas, diesel-electric ship! Diesel-electroho
        q to explain too? Find the first articles on this topic, and then comment!

    Yes, after the atomic "Lenin" it would be necessary to build at least something like that, and not go back to the last century.

      Lenin was launched in the 1957 year; 1959 was commissioned.
      And now we look at the list of Icebreakers in our country, compare the atomic / diesel ratio and carefully for the year of commissioning. At least here:Ледоколы_России#.D0.90.D1.82.D0.BE.D0

      return to the last century.

      The last century doesn’t mean bad! Previously, ships were built with such characteristics that when it was impossible to move further on water, they were moved on ice! I froze in the ice twice. And with all the possibilities of modern technology, I could not do anything. And I didn’t pray and pray for anyone there. It’s good that the hulls were not cut and not crushed by ice. But wintering until spring is an unpleasant activity ! And besides, it’s costly. But we didn’t have an icebreaker of this class nearby. And helicopters do not have such characteristics! Therefore, this project is awesome!

    There are ports and coastal zones, there is a hovercraft, each icebreaker has its own tasks, no one will plow the Gulf of Finland with the "Arctic"

    On December 12, 2012, Vyborg Shipbuilding Plant OJSC, ahead of schedule, hosted the solemn ceremony of laying the linear diesel-electric icebreaker of project 21900 M

    A diesel-electric is, of course, good, but ...

    Judging by the statements of some part of the audience of this site, all icebreakers and submarines (and preferably other ships) should be "nuclear". Where do such representations come from ?? and desires: - "We have all the greatest - OOOOOO !!!". There is a huge variety of regions and conditions for the use of the icebreaker fleet, which presupposes a wide range of types of applicable ship models.
