4 Sateges of the Nuclear Icebreaker Fleet Development till Year 2030 Stage 1. Years: 2010 -2015 Stage 2. Years: 2015 -2020 Stage 3. Years: 2020 -2025 Stage 4. Years: 2025 -2030 10
Stage 1. Years: 2010 -2015 Brief Characteristics of Stage 1 Measures to be Implemented The annual total freight traffic along the NSR may exceed 5 million ton in year 2012 and 20 million ton in 2015. 1. Bringing the number of nuclear icebreakers in line with the existing demand for services and performance of public duties. Staff restructuring. Stage 1 is characterized by: 1) 2) 3) stabilization of commercial demand for nuclear icebreaker fleet services at a relatively low level, growth of commercial demand for nuclear icebreaker fleet services is possible by the end of the period. services volume growth for state needs. 2. Construction of 1 universal new series nuclear icebreaker with the overall power of 60 MW will be launched in 2012 and will be completed in 2016. 3. Activities deployment on utilization of the decommissioned nuclear icebreakers. 4. Remedial maintenance base modernization launch, primarily, the security equipment modernization (operations with radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel). 5. Relationship restructuring between the nuclear icebreaker fleet operator – Rosatomflot – and the State. 6. Start of work on the formation of PPPs to enhance the major customers’ products logistics 11 effectiveness.
Stage 2. Years: 2015 -2020 Brief Characteristics of Stage 2 Measures to be Implemented The annual total freight traffic along the NSR may reach 45 million ton by year 2020. 1.

7. Conclusions intensity of transportation has a decisive impact on where northern cities and Arctic regions will prosper ü construction of 3 new universal nuclear icebreakers is of paramount importance in accordance with the projected freight traffic on the NSR ü 75 million ton in 2020, 90 million ton in 2025, > 100 million ton in 2030 the resource extraction companies (e. g. Norilsk Nickel) outline the importance of nuclear icebrekers on the NSR for rescue operations and safety provision ü not only safety, but also regulation and fee structures are crucial for economical use of the NSR, particularly by foreign cargo and ship owners ü ü to base at least one nuclear icebreaker in the Eastern Arctic 15
