The diesel-electric icebreaker "Svyatogor" of project 21180M for the Russian fleet was laid down in St. Petersburg

The second icebreaker of project 21180M for the Ministry of Defense was laid down in St. Petersburg at the Almaz shipbuilding company. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on September 1 and was timed to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the enterprise. This is stated in the message of the press service of the Petrogradsky district of St. Petersburg.

The Russian fleet will receive another Project 21180M icebreaker after the lead one, Evpatiy Kolovrat. The icebreaker laid down at Almaz, called Svyatogor, will go to the Northern Fleet, but this is preliminary information. "Evpatiy Kolovrat" was also built at "Almaz", currently it is already in Kamchatka, where it is undergoing the necessary tests before being transferred to the Pacific fleet.

Project 21180M, according to which Svyatogor is being built and Evpatiy Kolovarat was built, is a further development of project 21180. Earlier, the Ministry of Defense planned to order four icebreakers of the basic project, but only one was built - the Ilya Muromets icebreaker. In the future, it was decided for the Navy to build icebreakers according to the modernized project 21180M. Unlike the base icebreaker, the new one is a "light version" with a smaller draft. The project was developed at the Vympel Design Bureau in Nizhny Novgorod.

Full displacement - 4080 tons, hull length - 82 meters, width - 19 meters, draft - 4,6 meters. Speed ​​- up to 14 knots, cruising range - 7600 miles, autonomy - 30 days. Crew - 28 people. There is a platform for a helicopter. The icebreaker is capable of breaking ice up to 1 meter thick at a speed of 2 knots.

The vessel is designed to provide basing and deployment of fleet forces in ice conditions, independent pilotage of ships and vessels, as well as their towing support in ice conditions. The minimum draft allows the ship to enter all ports of the Northern Sea Route. In project 21180M, two rudder propellers and a fixed-pitch propeller were used while maintaining ice-breaking characteristics.

    And the Holy Mountains separated our territory from Hyperborean. The remains of these mountains are in our north, and there is a well-known settlement - Kholmogory, which can be interpreted as "holy mount". There is an opinion that this name was fixed because the maps of exclusively foreign sailors were preserved, where the inscriptions are in their languages.
