FlotProm Help: “Icebreakers of type LC-60 are equipped with a nuclear steam-generating unit RITM-200 manufactured by Atomenergomash with a capacity of 60MW developed by OKBM named after I. I. Afrikantov. Three four-blade propellers of fixed pitch are used as a propulsion unit. The two-draft design of these vessels allows them to be located both in the Arctic waters and in the mouths of the polar rivers. The maximum thickness of solid ice, surmounted by an icebreaker with a continuous stroke, is 2,8 meters. The service life of the icebreaker will be 40 years, the life of the reactor - 320 thousands of hours. The main tasks of these icebreakers are to serve the Northern Sea Route and conduct various expeditions to the Arctic.
The main characteristics are: the longest is 173,3 meters, the width is 34 meters, the depth on the middle is 15,2 meters, the draft is 8,5-10,5 meters, the displacement is 33,5 thousand tons. ”
