Krylov Center commences designing 110-MWt icebreaker-leader

FSUE Krylov State Research Center commences the designing of 110-MWt icebreaker-leader which is to become the largest icebreaker in the world and to ensure regular shipping along the Northern Sea Route, IAA PortNews journalist cites Evgeny Appolonov, Deputy Director General of FSUE Krylov State Research Center as saying at RAO/CIS Offshore 2013.

According to him, the icebreaker will probably feature a multihulled structure and make a broad canal beyond the possibilities of the existing icebreakers.

On November 1, 2012 St. Petersburg-based Baltic Shipyard held a steel-cutting ceremony for a new generation nuclear-powered 60MW icebreaker of Project 22220. On August 23 2012, Rosatom Corporation’s Atomflot and Baltic Shipyard (Baltiysky Zavod-Shipbuilding) signed a contract for the construction of the RS class icebreaker of new generation of Project 22220. Rosatom is the state customer and investor of the contract while Atomflot FSUE is the construction customer.
