In 2018, Atomflot’s nuclear icebreakers steered 331 ships of a complete gross capability 12.7 mln tons. As in comparison with 2017, the capability of steered ships elevated by 5 million tons.
With that, the variety of steering operations decreased (final 12 months it was 493 ships) as a consequence of completion of the energetic section of development within the port of Sabetta and discount of circulation of vessels carrying cargoes for development. Besides, as liquefied pure gasoline shipments from Sabetta began by LNG tankers of Yamalmax class, the gross capability of ships steered by icebreakers has elevated.
In 2018 the corporate has began work within the framework of the export contract below the challenge “Yamal LNG”. The work has been began on the second pure gasoline challenge in Gydan Peninsula. These key occasions decide workload of Rosatomflot for the approaching 30-40 years.
Atomflot has efficiently carried out the challenge on creation of a port fleet to render companies within the Gulf of Ob. In June 2018 the icebreaking tow boat Nadym (ice class Arc 6) was accepted into service. Vyborg Shipyard (Vyborg, Leningrad Region) completes constructing the port icebreaker Ob (launched on June 21, 2018); the ship commissioning is ready for 2019.
Late December 2018 the dock fitted with trendy tools was accomplished. This tools contains machines to course of pulling gears, shafts, propellers of icebreakers and over vessels in addition to their restore. The allow to place the dock in operation was acquired. “All works may be fulfilled within the new dock; the works associated to the dock restore of common nuclear icebreakers. The new machine processes the shaft of as much as 70 tons,” Oleg Darbinyan, Director for Fleet Technical Operation at FSUE Atomflot, famous. (Source and picture: Atomflot)
