Taymyr, the nuclear-powered icebreaker operated by FSUE Atomflot, has successfully escorted a convoy of seven vessels (Kumpula, Vladimir Rusanov, Severniy Project, RZK Constanta, Turukhan, Grigoriy Shelikhov and Mechanic Pustoshny) along the Northern Sea Route . From the western ice edge of the Kara Sea, the ships independently continued their journey out of the NSR area.On 22 November 2021, another nuclear-powered icebreaker – Vaygach – escorted RZK Constanta, Turukhan and Grigoriy Shelikhov from the port of Pevek. The convoy then began to move westwards. On 25 November, Kumpula, Selenga, Vladimir Rusanov, Severniy Project and Mechanic Pustoshny joined the convoy. On 5 December Selenga left the convoy in the area of the Taymyr Peninsula and independently made its way to the Sever Bay.On 6 December, the Taymyr icebreaker took over the convoy while Vaygach headed to the Gulf of Ob. Once Taymyr had finished escorting this convoy, she went on to escort two more ships Teriberka and Tambein from the western ice edge of the Kara Sea to the Yenisey Gulf. There are now no vessels in the NSR area in need of urgent icebreaker assistance.
