4 Flying Around an Ice Breaker

Flying Around an Ice Breaker

Posted on June 10, 2014 by tim

Russian blogger Sergey went on an ice breaker journey through the Arctic. He says that there is a helicopter on board the vessel. It is a Russian KA-32C copter and he took a trip on it around the ice breaking ship while deep into the ice of the Arctic. Photos are inside.

That’s Sergey on the ground.

And now he is taking photos from the copter. He says that it is interesting to be a part of such a great team undertaking scientific research in the Arctic. He is sure that it’s only Russia who has an atomic ice breaking fleet such as this. 

Equipment being unloaded on to the ice for conducting the research.

The small dot on the left is the human, this might help to get an idea of the boat’s size.

What is the research he talks about? He says they explore the ice and he promises to talk about it in a separate posting.

    Russia had the first nuclear-powered icebreaker with the “Lenin” in 1959.

      russia is the only country in the world to have nuclear icebreakers, no other country has ever had them nor will.

    I would think they must always leave the ship engines running. cold engine with cold thick oil would not start if it did have to shut down for whatever reason.

      Ummm….. nuclear.
      Generates it’s own heat, that’s the whole process of “nuclear”.
      Their problem is they can generate TOO much heat.
