Siberia-the 2nd 22220 series nuclear icebreaker will go on sea trials in November. They will be shorter than those conducted on Arktika-the first nuclear icebreaker of the same series. Therefore, it is planned that the new icebreaker will enter the home port in December 2021. At the same time, the icebreaker Arktika is still under repair at the Baltic plant. The first icebreaker of the 22220 series risks going to sea together with the icebreaker Siberia. In addition to the engine that burned during sea trials on the Arktika icebreaker, many other flaws were revealed. So the St. Petersburg residents and tourists will be able to admire not only the icebreakers Arktika and Siberia standing at the same berth, but also their simultaneous access to the sea.
