Atomflot launches Rossita container ship

The multifunctional ship Rossita left the home port of Murmansk and set sail for Said-Guba to fulfill the contract with SevRAO (North-West Center for Radioactive Waste Management), the blog reports bmpd with reference to the FSUE "Atomflot".

The purpose of the contract is “to export temporary packages with solid radioactive waste from the territory of the SZTS SevRAO by sea transport and place them in storage at Sayda Bay”, the report says.

The first deputy general director of Atomflot, Mustafa Kashka, explained that the Serebryanka servicing vessel had previously performed similar operations.

“Now we are starting the operation of the Rossita, specially built for these works”
said Kashka. He added that before this the ship had sailed several times to the sea, but it transported only regular cargo. Now the ship "will be engaged in the removal of SNF and RW from recycled nuclear submarines from the former coastal bases of the Russian Navy in North-West Russia."

The Rossita container ship was commissioned by Atomflot FSUE in 2011. The ship was built in Italy as part of the intergovernmental agreement “On bilateral cooperation on the disposal of Russian nuclear submarines withdrawn from the combat operations of the Russian Navy and the processing of nuclear waste and spent nuclear fuel” concluded in 2003

The money for the construction of Rossita (Russia-Italy), about € 70 million, was allocated by the Italian side as a contribution to the G8 global partnership.

The Rossita is an ice-class vessel, its displacement is 4 thousand tons, intended for the transport of spent nuclear fuel. It has 2 insulated cargo compartments (holds), the total capacity of which is 720 tons. Vessel length - 84 m, width - 14 m, speed - up to 12 nodes.

            Especially the Italians will come in handy such a quality as the ability to walk in ice conditions, and this ship will also be indispensable when disposing of the Italian nuclear fleet laughing . It is said after all:
            The money for the construction of Rossita (Russia-Italy), about € 70 million, was allocated by the Italian side as a contribution to the G8 global partnership.

            It was just that the Italians were inclined to allocate money within the framework of the then "Zh8", their turn was to share with babos.

      This is a good help for the safe movement of radioactive materials, and therefore for human health. Science and technology in these areas need to be forced, otherwise humanity has not yet advanced much.

      It’s not a bad thing from such a partnership of Russia, but it was in 2003, when we were believed that Russia was a pantry of the West. Oh, how the West miscalculated, but now, however, the creatures recoup. Well, Nitsche, we will take our own, if only we were lucky for the rulers. GO RUSSIA!!!

      Is this what the Italians gave us for free? Chet can not believe it ...

      In all likelihood, it is primarily a garbage truck for the delivery of radioactive waste from Western European nuclear power plants to the Russian Arctic.

      A good boat and the right one ... But his name is kag-be, not quite in my exclusively subjective opinion ... No, I certainly understand that "Rossita" is encrypted "Rossand I-Italia ", but in the convolutions, albeit vulgar, but funny rhyme pops up ...

      Rossita sleeps and does not feel,
      That a sailor sleeps on her ...
      Rossita will be awakened
      And drive away the parasite ...

      But let's hope that this name becomes happy for the ship. For as the sea captain Christopher Banifatievich Vrungel used to say -
      "whatever you call a yacht, so it will float" ...
