Baltic Shipyard to build two new icebreakers for the Northern Sea Route
Two universal nuclear-powered icebreakers will build the Baltic Shipyard for the Northern Sea Route. The corresponding contract was signed with the leadership of Rosatom. They promise to finish the first ice vessel by the 2024 year, the second - by the 2026 year.
As the Interfax, the cost of icebreakers is more than 100 billion rubles. They will be equipped with a new type of nuclear power plant and will become the largest and most powerful icebreakers in the world. The special design of the vessels will make it possible to use them both in the waters of the Arctic and in the mouths of the polar rivers.
In addition to these icebreakers, three more ice vessels are being built at the Baltic Shipyard. The Arctic will be the very first to finish - at the beginning of the 2020 of the year. Giants are necessary for the development of the Northern Sea Route. They will make it possible to provide year-round sea wiring, which will also provide communications with the port of Pevek, where the Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear power station will be based.
