The Russian Federation can not build the nuclear icebreaker "Arktika" in due time because of the lack of parts produced in Ukraine, the Russian edition of Kommersant informed.
Reportedly, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to postpone the deadline for the delivery of the LK-60YA nuclear icebreaker "Arktika" from 2017 to 2019. But the source of the publication, close to the construction of the icebreaker, believes that even in these terms will not hard to meet.
The main problem is in turbines. Initially, according to the plan, they were to be tested by the Kharkiv turbine plant in Ukraine, but after the Russian attack on Ukraine in 2014, a decision was made to build the stand at the Kirov-Energomash enterprise.
The Shipbuilding Corporation complained about staffing problems, a large time gap in the implementation of similar projects, the loss of competencies, the alteration of the technical design and documentation.
It should be noted that the construction of the two-reactor icebreaker "Arktika" began in November 2013 and cost the Russian budget 37 billion rubles.
