Russia is developing a new generation of civilian ships for Arctic voyages

The Russian United Shipbuilding Corporation announced that experts in Russia are working on a project to develop new civilian ships capable of sailing in the Arctic regions.

A statement issued by the company’s press service said: “Experts at the Russian Almaz Naval Design Center are working on designing new civilian ships capable of sailing in the Arctic regions.”

The statement added: “The new Konshire ships are upgraded versions of the icebreakers manufactured by Russia under Project 23550. They will be intended for sea voyages and passenger transport in polar seas. They will receive special equipment that will enable them to anchor in ice-covered waters or in water areas not equipped with ports. They will also be used for exploratory sea voyages or scientific and research trips.”

The statement indicated that the new "Conshire" ships will be equipped with platforms for carrying drones and platforms for carrying helicopters. These aircraft will help them survey their path and discover icebergs, and will be used in scientific research operations.

Each of these ships is 112 metres long, 20 metres wide, has a displacement of 9,000 tonnes, carries 74 passengers in addition to a crew of 55, sails at a speed of 12 knots, covers 800 nautical miles on each trip, and operates for 35 days in the water without the need to refuel or refuel.
