Atomenergomash has manufactured a reactor facility for the Arktika icebreaker

37
Atomenergomash JSC (engineering division of Rosatom) completed the manufacture of the RITM-200 reactor installation for the Arktika icebreaker, launched on June 16 in St. Petersburg. June 26 2 reactor was sent to the Baltic plant, the first was shipped X on May, reports press office company.



"RITM-200 the latest reactor installation for icebreaking fleetdeveloped by JSC "Afrikantov OKBM". It is part of the main power plant of the icebreaker and includes two reactors with a thermal capacity of 175 MW each, ”the release says.

“RHYTHM-200 is a new generation of reactor facilities, therefore, non-standard engineering solutions and very well-coordinated teamwork were required for the production of equipment. Several companies of the division took part in the project implementation: Afrikantov OKBM, as a designer and complete supplier, ZiO-Podolsk, as a manufacturer of case equipment, and EMSS, TsNIITMASH. In the course of production operations, the specialists of the division developed several new technologies and tools that were not previously used not only in Russia, but also in the world. Among them, the new technology of ultra-precise drilling of deep holes, new types of cutting tools, etc. Therefore, the successful shipment of RHYTHM-200 is an important event not only for the division, but also for the nuclear industry and domestic engineering, ”the Atomenergomash CEO reports. Andrei Nikipelov.

“The construction of an atomic icebreaker is an extremely complex process, in which close coordination between manufacturers of various components and elements is very important. The timely delivery of the reactor facility allows us to move in the schedule in order to transfer the icebreaker to the customer in strict accordance with the approved deadlines, ”said Sergey Chernogubovsky, project manager at Baltiysky Zavod.

“The main advantage of the new power plant is its compactness and efficiency. It has a unique energy-efficient integrated layout, which provides placement of the main equipment directly inside the housing of the steam generating unit. Due to this, it is two times lighter, one and a half times more compact, and on 25 MW it is more powerful than currently used reactor installations for icebreaking fleet of type KLT. In particular, this allowed the icebreaker to be a two-pack icebreaker and provides improved technical characteristics of the vessel in terms of the icebreaking speed, etc., ”the message says.

The service life of the reactor 40 years. “As a nuclear fuel, an active cluster zone with low enrichment of uranium-235 is used. Nuclear fuel is reloaded once every seven years. For example, during this time a diesel icebreaker would have to spend 540 thousand tons of Arctic diesel for work. And one CHP of the same capacity would have consumed 1 a million tons of coal to provide the 30-thousand city with energy, ”the company said.



It is noted that "for the transportation of the icebreaking reactor, AEM specialists produced a special transport package made of metal, and since the reactor is an oversized cargo, it is delivered to the customer on a special railway conveyor of articulated type with a load capacity of 240 tons."

Help of the press service: "The Arctic nuclear-powered multi-engined nuclear-powered icebreaker will be the largest and most powerful nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world. Its length will be 173 meters, width - 34 meters, minimum working draft - 8,5 meters, displacement - 33,5 thousand tons. The construction of the icebreaker is carried out at the shipyards of the Baltic Shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) in St. Petersburg. An atomic-powered vessel will be able to conduct caravans of ships in arctic conditions, punching ice up to 3 meters along the way. ”

        That would not tear at exorbitant prices for electricity from us.
        That will be the competitive advantage of our manufacturers !!!

          Do you seriously think that nuclear energy is much cheaper than traditional energy? Not much. An entire branch of industry works only for the extraction and enrichment of uranium. Loading the reactor once every seven years is certainly good, but it does not solve the whole complex of problems associated with nuclear energy. For such "convenience", you also have to pay, and not a little.

            The nuclear industry is not a cheap industry! But if you thought about it a bit, and even read the article, then it gives more profit even more with modern technologies, although judging by the flag you are better off without it, and without industry at all!

            Nuclear energy is really cheaper than traditional, with its own problems and difficulties. At the expense of nuclear reactor waste, soon this waste will become more necessary than uranium of high concentration, the BN 800 reactor operating on this waste is already in operation in Russia.

        it is pleasant to realize that progress in the energy sector does not stand still in our country. Over time, such facilities will become more and more powerful and smaller, which should radically change the structure of not only the Russian energy sector, but also the economy as a whole, by reducing the cost of the energy component.

    they shout that even Finland has more patents than Russia, I want to ask - can Finns build nuclear power plants? and the fifth generation airplane? they don’t even do helicopters.
    and a patent can be made for a new grip of a mallet. by the number of reworkings of the saw, you can make so many patents that you will overtake any institute of nuclear physics that rarely makes patents, but what ones.

      Ekspl, I do not argue with you, the nuclear reactor looks just super, but why should Finland deal with fifth-generation military fighters?

        Yes, recently the states wrote that Russia is unfinished which is simply bloated, and so a complete zilch. Like, and Ikanomeke, we have less than South Korea (it turned out to be a lie. Our economy is 2 times more) and we have less patents than Finns, and so on.
        so I gave an example, since a patent can also be made on a new handle, only the intellectual potential 10 patents for saw or paper are not worth one patent for nuclear physics.

      For reference. Helsinki shipyards Arctech Helsinki Shipyard for about 2 years completely owned by our United Shipbuilding Corporation. Now one of the built-in diesel icebreakers is being built there. So what number of these patents is available to us now? Xs.
      In general, I always believed that the Russian Federation had to redeem Nokia, when it began to have problems. THERE WOULD WE HAVE READY TECHNOLOGIES, BRAND AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRODUCE OWN PHONES and related products, regardless of import. And with Russian money, resources, a huge market and the possibility of promoting nokia, they could raise an entire industry in a short time. And abroad, it was possible to tear part of the market. Personally, my IMHO. hi

      As for the Finns, I’ll say frankly, Their business is paper. toilet bowls, maybe still NOKIA. And by the way, to create (design and build) a helicopter is much more difficult than a plane. This is not to mention the power plants (engines).

    RHYTHM-200 is made according to a dual circuit. A distinctive feature of the reactor is the 4 steam generator integrated into the core body. Traditionally, steam generators are made in a separate housing connected to the core housing by primary coolant pipelines. The integrated layout reduces the material consumption and dimensions of the installation, reduces the risk of leaks from the primary reactor loop, and facilitates installation and dismantling of the installation. 4 main circulation pumps are located around the reactor vessel. The reactor will have a thermal capacity of 175 MW. In order to comply with the principle of non-proliferation, uranium enrichment is limited to 20%. Fuel reloading every 7 years, with the planned life of 40 years [.

    So, atomic scientists have long thought about the need for such reactors for ships of this class.

We have already begun to address environmental issues even with the rise of the economy
