Zio-Podolsk, a subsidiary of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, has dispatched four hydroaccumulators for the Ural nuclear-powered icebreaker under construction at the Baltic Shipyard in Saint Petersburg, Rosatom says in a press release.
Ural is one of three vessels of Project 22220 - featuring RITM-200 reactors - that will be able to break through ice 3 metres thick as they escort vessels across the Arctic Ocean.
Saint-Petersburg based Baltiysky Zavod shipyard is building three duel-draft 60MW icebreakers of Project 22220 (Arktika, Sibir, Ural). LK-60 icebreakers will be able to escort convoys of ships in the Arctic, breaking through ice of up to 3 meters thick. General characteristics of 22220 Project vessels: capacity - 60 MW, operational speed - 22 knots (clean water), length - 173.3 m (160 m, DWL), beam - 34 m (33 m, DWL), depth - 15.2 m; draft (DWL) - 10.5 m; minimum draft - 8.55 m, maximum icebreaking capability - 2.8-meter-thick ice (at full capacity and speed of 1.5-2 knots); full displacement – 33,540 tonnes; designated service life - 40 years, crew - 75.
