The new nuclear-powered icebreaker Arctic series 22220 started working in October last year, 2020. Since then, the Arctic nuclear icebreaker has been tested for information security. The audit results will be announced at the end of this year. While working in the Gulf of Ob, a technical problem was discovered in the oil vapor suction system in low-pressure cylinders. So the nuclear-powered icebreaker Arktika went to the port of Murmansk for repairs. After the repair, the nuclear-powered vessel «somehow» worked out the season. And now it will have to get up for repair again. In August, the icebreaker will replace the electric motor that burned during sea trials.
