The "Arktika" icebreaker has been at the Baltic Shipyard for the last five months, where work on warranty repairs was performed. They replaced the starboard propeller motor, revised the rudder complex, bottom-side fittings and painted the ship's hull, writes the Baltic Plant.
During the factory sea trials, which took place in the water area of the Gulf of Finland, the icebreaker fully confirmed its compliance with the design specifications. The atomic ship left the port of St. Petersburg a few days ago and today, as shown by the online map of the location of the ships, arrived at the port of Murmansk.
In the near future, it will take up its main duties - the implementation of pilotage along the Northern Sea Route.
