Worlds Largest Nuclear Icebreaker

75 000 h.p. The Biggest Nuclear Icebreaker \\ 75 000 л.с. Атомный Ледокол Ямал

For 7 days the film crew passed through the Barents Sea to Karsky around the Novaya Zemlya
archipelago on the nuclear icebreaker Yamal – we saw the northern lights and polar bears,
watched the ships stuck in the ice being towed and were very cold.

In the video you can see two Russian icebreakers – “50 Years of Victory” and “Yamal” with a
capacity of 75,000 horsepower and a distinctive shark mouth, which appeared on it in 1994
during one of the children’s humanitarian programs.

According to legend, someone suggested
drawing a smiling shark mouth on the nose to make it more fun for children. At present,
Russia has the only nuclear-powered icebreaker fleet in the world. They are used to provide
wiring ships in the waters of the Northern Sea Route in the freezing ports of the
Russian Federation, research expeditions, rescue operations and tourist cruises.

In addition to the extreme weather conditions, the shooting was complicated by the fact that
the icebreaker was always in motion. And if the quadrocopter DJI Inspire 2 was flying over the
radar tower, the recording file was damaged.
