Russia already dominates the World in Nuclear Powered Ice-Breakers now they are building a new ship nearly 600 feet long; 100 feet wide; approximately 25,000 tons and can generate 60 Megawatts of power.

It will be capable of towing vessels over 70,000 gross tonnes.

Russia is the only country in the world currently building nuclear icebreakers, and has a fleet of about half a dozen in operation, along with a larger fleet of less powerful, diesel-powered icebreakers.

While Russia’s new-generation nuclear icebreaker is budgeted at 1.1 billion dollars, the US this year has been relying on a Russian diesel icebreaker to deliver supplies to its main base in Antarctica due to our own shrinking fleet of the cold-water, diesel-fueled vessels, reports Stars and Stripes.
