    Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has visited the St. Petersburg based Baltiysky Shipyard to inspect the progress of the construction of the nuclear-powered icebreakers, the shipbuilder said in a press release.

    Dmitry Rogozin inspected with the construction of the flagship of the nuclear-powered icebreaker of project 22220, and Floating Nuclear Thermal Power Plant (FNTTP) "Akademik Lomonosov". Both projects are designed to ensure the development of Russian northern territories.

    General Director of Baltiysky Shipyard Alexei Kadilov told the official about the order execution phase. "As of today, the lead nuclear-powered icebreaker of Project 22220 is completed by 14%, the FNTPP – by 85%, the contract works are on-budget and on-time," Kadilov was quoted as saying.

    Dmitry Rogozin said the project is very important for the development of the Northern Sea Route. “This is a priority for the Russian Goverment to develop the Arctic," the official added.

    Baltiysky Zavod Shipbuilding (Baltiysky Shipyard) is part of United Shipbuilding Corporation and is executing the largest in Russia contracts for the construction of the flagship and two serial nuclear-powered icebreakers LK-60.

    The lead universal nuclear-powered icebreaker of Project 22220 was laid down on November 5, 2013. The LK-60 "Arctica" will be powered by two RITM-200 reactors of 175 MWt, which together deliver 60 MW at the three propellers via twin turbine-generators and three motors and will be the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the world. Ship's specifications: LOA - 173.3 m, beam - 34 m, draft at DWL- 10.5 m, minimum loaded draft - 8,55 m, displacement - 33.54 tonnes. Under the terms of contract the flagship is scheduled for completion in in December 2017. Two serial nuclear-powered icebreakers of project 22220 are scheduled for delivery in December 2019 and December 2020, respectively.

    The 8 class icebreaker will be able to sail in the 3-meter-thick ice. The LK-60 features advanced dual-draft capability, which makes it suitable for operations both in the Arctic waters, and in the mouths of the northern rivers. The icebreaker will be operating in the western region of the Arctic, the Barents, Pechora and Kara Seas and in shallow waters of the mouth of the Yenisei and the Ob Bay.
