Prospects for Russia with a broken icebreaker: Romanian media about the "Arctic"


The new Putin’s icebreaker has already broken, but modernizing the Russian Arctic fleet is a priority for the Kremlin. The task was set to increase transportation along the Northern Sea Route to 80 million tons by 2025, says journalist Valery Daniil from the Romanian portal OVZ.


Tests of electric motors of the new nuclear icebreaker "Arctic" in the Baltic were unsuccessful. For Russian President Vladimir Putin, this is a “red light”. A short circuit disabled one of the ship's three electric motors. No tests were carried out with a nuclear power plant.

Now the engineers have to do in the hull technological hole and replace the broken motor. This operation may delay the commissioning of the most powerful icebreaker in the world for a year.

After the failure of the specified unit, the tests continued with two engines running. As a result, some experts had doubts that in May 2020 this icebreaker will be able to go on the planned route from St. Petersburg to Murmansk.

In Russia itself, the appearance of a new icebreaker was criticized. So, the head of Bellona Environmental Law Center LLC in Murmansk (the former NPO Bellona-Murmansk, recognized in 2015 as a foreign agent) Andrei Zolotkov said that the planned tests of the vessel “will not lead to anything good”, without specifying what danger they can carry.

Mr. Zolotkov apparently forgot that the icebreaker is experiencing problems with the electric motor, and not with the nuclear power plant, and there can be no question of any environmental damage to the environment.

    Well, if Zolotkov himself (which is not Serebrennikov) says, then it’s true. That the electric motor has burned is significant. The reception is again on top. Let them check the bolts at the same time, maybe they also overkill. KZ to arrange, that's cool. Revenge from Siemens?

    Let the hosts write better about the Zumvelts, and we will deal with our largest icebreaking fleet in the world.

    Some kind of biased title for the article. Perspectives of Russia with a broken icebreaker. Firstly, this is an unfinished icebreaker, Prefabricated at the factory test. Secondly, Russia has about four dozen icebreakers, of which seven are nuclear units. In addition, Russia has ice class vessels. In short, the prospects for Russia in the Arctic are excellent.

    Ravings of a madman. All in a bunch! - horses, people, electric motors. And not one of three. And one of the six engines (two on each of the three propeller shafts of the icebreaker) could not even see))) Replacing the electric motor is not such a difficult procedure.

    The opinion of the gentlemen of the Romanians is very important to us.

    It’s only with amers that the electric lines on the ship during the tests are covered and kapets. Allegedly the entire fleet is grieving at the pier.

    And we have temporary difficulties.

    Oh yeah! The reasoning of "experts" from a country that does not have a single sea-class icebreaker at all is very important and instructive. Yeah.
    Even connoisseurs are found.

    Well, actually, tests exist for that, to identify problems, if that.

    But the Romanians do not want to talk about their Navy ?! Two troughs built during the Soviet era, without air defense systems, with Termit anti-ship missiles and two self-propelled guns bought in England, armed only with artillery, and that is not a lot ... The army still uses the T-55 ... but they climb to speculate about the Russian Federation .. Solve your problems in your gypsy state ...

    Is a short circuit causing the motor to fail? It’s immediately clear that it’s not a techie who writes. The author does not understand anything in electricity at all. Hence the assessment of the article, you yourself understand which one.

      Well, how would you be right. More likely, a defective electric motor will cause a short circuit, and not vice versa. But on the other hand .. a short circuit can cause a fire and damage the electric motor. Well, electronics starting an electric motor short circuit can damage this or that way.

    The author is like a flea sitting on a horn of a bull and plowing a field with it. Thinking thoughtfully in the nose, discussing the fate of the Russian icebreaking fleet. Interestingly, had he ever seen this icebreaker, even from the pier? Specialist......
    1. The comment was deleted.
    2. If this is an installation error - to put all the fitters in, and if they burst in the design bureau - there all clean.

    But if your television was received by two military tricks, 5 and 9 (specialists know what it is), but your lustful pens turned it on and on and on, and it burned out, then what about the reception? A piece of shit to throw a desire? Well, then to the working youth school, courses, and university. Finish, pass the exams and then knock here. May be allowed to attend.

    Poor Romania. Well, how will she survive this now? After all, the Russians broke an electric motor on an icebreaker under construction. Probably, corn will not grow this year. Poor Romanians, how they survive it.

    Romanian media nothing more to write about? Where is Romania and where is the Arctic? Lost, what?

    But then the cow did not even get sick, but simply stumbled. It would be better if they became interested in the problems of their coal producers.

    And what about the Romanians, what about our icebreakers and the Arctic as a whole? Let them not deal with their affairs and do not stick their smelly nose into our affairs. Also for me, there were experts on atomic icebreakers !!!

    Romanian "specialist" in the field of nuclear icebreaker fleet !? Surprisingly (but a completely different word is asked), I thought they only know about stolen horses.
