Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) estimates technical readiness of icebreaker Victor Chernomyrdin at 39.2%. This has been announced at the joint meeting of the Board and the Public Council of Rosmorrechflot.
The launching of the icebreaker is scheduled for October 2016 with the delivery of LK-25 expected in late 2017.
Icebreaker of project 22600 is a powerful diesel-electric icebreaker (25 MW) with a wide range of functional capabilities. It is being built under the programme on renovation of the national icebreaking fleet. The icebreaker named Victor Chernomyrdin was laid down in Saint-Petersburg on October 10, 2012.
The ship is to be used as an auxiliary vessel for escorting convoys in challenging ice conditions at the Northern Sea Route or for independent assistance to vessels in shallow Arctic areas, and in estuaries of rivers, for helping to unload cargo on land-fast ice, for towing ships and other floating constructions in ice and in plain water, for expeditor voyages, firefighting at vessels and oil-extracting platforms.
