Rosatomflot and the Zvezda coastal shipbuilding complex signed a contract for the construction of the Leader nuclear-powered icebreaker. The signing ceremony was held remotely.

According to the press service of the state corporation, the construction of the atomic icebreaker of project 10510 will be implemented on the basis of a government decree. Commissioning of the vessel is planned in 2027.

The Leader will be equipped with two RITM-400 type nuclear reactors developed by Rosatom specialists. The total capacity of the icebreaker will be 120 MW. This will allow him to overcome ice more than four meters thick.

The Russian government will allocate in 2020-2027 127,5 billion for the construction of the "Leader". The decision on this before leaving the post of prime minister was signed by Dmitry Medvedev. An icebreaker is needed to ensure year-round pilotage of cargo ships along the Severmorput. Project 10510 nuclear powered vehicles are conceived as the most powerful in the world. To develop the Arctic will require three such icebreakers. The marginal cost of the first without VAT and additional costs will be 98,6 billion.
