Thanks to specialists from the Spetstyazhavtotrans Group of Companies, the second serial nuclear icebreaker of the project 22220 “Ural” now got a “heart”. In this case – even two. Complicated work on the installation of two nuclear reactors RITM-200 weighing 200 tons has been completed.
The operation performed is considered unique. For the first time in the history of nuclear icebreaking, the loading of such equipment was carried out in the conditions of an inclined slipway.
The installation of the RHYTHM-200 was carried out with the help of a modern rigging portal, which allows you to set the load in the design position with an accuracy of 1 mm, – says Pavel Gorokhov, the project manager. – We managed to mount and configure the portal in record time – 14 working shifts, despite the fact that in this modification the design has not been used before.
