MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Russia will get three new generation nuclear icebreakers by 2020, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said during the Voskresny Vecher (Sunday Night) program on Russian television.
"Now the service life of the current icebreaker fleet is coming to an end. In 2017, there’ll be the first vessel, then 2019 and 2020. We are on schedule, and Russia will have a new icebreaker fleet, which will ensure escort of convoys and vessels along the Northern Sea Route, by 2020," Rogozin said.
He said that on Tuesday he plans to visit the Baltiyskiy Zavod (Baltic Shipyard) in St. Petersburg to lay the foundation of the first serial nuclear icebreaker of the new generation.
"The head icebreaker has been some 60% assembled. Serial production will start after the head icebreaker," Rogozin said.
