The Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg in northwest Russia on Friday glided out the Sibir atomic fueled icebreaker of Project 22220, which is intended for transporting loads by means of the Northern Sea Route, a TASS journalist detailed.

“Much obliged to you for your diligent work and for the resurrection of the segment. Sibir has its forerunner – the icebreaker that was charged in 1977 and has just observed long administration. Its supreme record was set in May when it achieved the North Pole. I wish the present Sibir to likewise break the record,” Director General of the Rosatom state organization, Alexei Likhachev, said.
Leader of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov said the Arctic investigation is a testing mission, yet the plant’s representatives have been buckling down. “I’m certain that today we will influence another progression to forward for building up the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route,” he said.
The primary serial-created Project 22220 atomic fueled icebreaker Sibir was set down in May 2015 and is set to be conveyed in 2020.
Under an agreement with Rosatomflot, the national administrator of the atomic controlled armada, the Baltic Shipyard is building three atomic icebreakers of this Project: the Arktika, the Sibir and the Ural. The specialized plan of these atomic fueled icebreakers has been created by the Iceberg Central Design Bureau.

General Project 22220 atomic fueled icebreakers are intended to lead vessels in the Arctic and ships in the shallow waters of the Yenisei River and the Gulf of Ob and render help to vessels and do save works in ice conditions and without ice waters.
Undertaking 22220 atomic fueled icebreakers will be fitted out with a two-reactor control plant with a fundamental steam source from the 175MW RITM reactor establishment. They will end up being the world’s biggest and most capable atomic fueled icebreakers.
Rosatom prior said that the United Shipbuilding Corporation had made a request to defer the Arktika’s entering in benefit from 2017 to a later date. Rosatom said this would not influence the conveyance of freights by means of the Northern Sea Route.
