    Flag-raising ceremony for the icebreaker Ilya Muromets (Project 21180) built for RF Navy has taken place today, 30 November 2017, at the Admiralteiskie Verfi shipyard in St. Petersburg. 

    According to the shipyard’s press release, the ceremony has been attended by
    Vice Admiral Victor Bursuk, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of RF Navy;  Viktor Chirkov, Chief Advisor to the USC President; Aleksandr Buzakov, Director General of Admiralteiskie Verfi JSC. 

    When speaking at the ceremony, Aleksandr Buzakov emphasized that it took only three years to build a ship of the new generation which kicked off the participation of Admiralteiskie Verfi in the development of RF Navy’s Arctic group. 

    “The Navy has not been ordering any vessels of this class for more than 40 years and today we get a ship with functions going beyond those of a conventional icebreaker, – said Vice Admiral Victor Bursuk. – The Northern Fleet is looking forward to welcoming the Ilya Muromets. I would like to emphasize that Admiralteiskie Verfi has once again built a wonderful ship in strict compliance with the contract. I am sure the new icebreaker will demonstrate its high performance in the nearest time.” 

    The Ilya Muromets is a multi-purpose single-deck vessel of project 21180, designed for deployment and activation of the forces in ice conditions. It was laid down on April 23, 2015, and was launched on June 10, 2016. The acceptance/delivery certificate was signed on November 27, 2017. The ship is capable to perform functions of a tugboat, an icebreaker and a patrol boat at the same time, and it will be used for support of the Artic group of the Russian Navy.

    High maneuverability has been achieved by fully revolving mechanic twin-screw pod drives and a bow thruster, thereby increasing maneuvering performance of the vessel in ice conditions.
    The vessel control system has a high scale integration and automation. The icebreaker is equipped with advanced navigation system, electronic mapping navigation data system. The ship has been built with observance of the international conventions – International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).
     
    For the first time in the history of domestic shipbuilding the constructing company also acted as a designer. The icebreaker is a unique innovative scientific vessel fully complying with the global standards. 

    The main characteristics of the vessel are the following: displacement is 6,000 tons; length is 85 meters; width is 20 meters; freeboard is 9.2 meters; draft is 6.8 meters; sea endurance is up to 60 days; cruising range is up to 3,000 nautical miles; icebreaking capability – an ice field with a thickness up to 1,5 m; propulsion type is diesel power generator with pod drives with capacity 3,5 MW each; crew -  39; speed – 15 knots.
