10 January 2022

The nuclear-powered Arktika icebreaker accompanied the Polar King motor ship with cargo for the Baimsky mining and processing plant to the Chukotka port of Pevek, Chukotka Governor Roman Kopin said.

“This is the third ship accompanied by the world’s most powerful nuclear icebreaker to the northernmost city of Russia. Polar King delivered equipment and materials for the key development project of the region – Baimsky mining and processing plant. There are 4,000 tons of general cargo and containers of individual entrepreneurs on board.” – Kopin said on Monday in his official social network account

The Pevek administration reported that the Yury Arshenevsky ship and the Engineer Trubin motor ship, accompanied by the nuclear-powered icebreaker Arktika and the diesel-electric icebreaker Kapitan Dranitsyn, arrived in Pevek in early January, but strong winds prevented the ships from unloading quickly.
