Today we’ll visit an atomic vehicle named 50 Years Of Victory and participate in a short excursion along its machinery department and other premises. All the pictures are represented below.
An atomic icebreaker is a plain steamer. The atomic reactor heats water that turns into steam that rotates turbines that activate generators that generate electricity that enters electric motors that set 3 marine propellers in motion.
The body depth at the place of ice breaking is 5 cm. Such a ship has a double bottom and won’t have to retreat in case of a hole.
The excursion started in the cabin of the engineer in chief. The 50 Years Of Victory vessel is provided with 2 nuclear reactors. They have enough power to supply with energy a city inhabited by 2 million people.
The nuclear rectors are thoroughly protected from accidents and external impacts. The icebreaker can stand a collision with a passenger airplane or similar icebreaker at the speed of 10 km an hour.
Fuel is changed every 5 years.
