ST. PETERSBURG, October 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attended a keel-laying ceremony of the diesel-powered icebreaker LK-25 for the federal state unitary enterprise Rosmorport here on Wednesday.
For the first time in the last 30 years in Russia the Baltic shipbuilding plant has developed and is implementing the project of a state-of-the-art diesel-powered icebreaker LK-25 of ice class Icebreaker 8 with the capacity of 25 MW that should replace the old icebreakers, which Finland had built in the 70s-80s of the previous century. The keel of the first ship of this class – the icebreaker St. Petersburg - was laid at the Baltic shipbuilding plant.
The LK-25 is designed for a separate convoying of the ships and the operation of an auxiliary ship in the composite convoys on the Northern Sea Route. According to many parameters and functional capabilities the icebreaker differs greatly from the ships of the previous generation.
