The nuclear icebreaker
Yamal was built in BALTIJSKIJ ZAVOD- LENINEGRADO, Russia in 1992 by Murmansk Shipping Company and is one of five ice-breakers in this
class. Not simply an ice-reinforced ship, the Yamal is a powerful and sophisticated icebreaker that has taken adventurous
passengers to the North Pole since 1993.
One of the world's most powerful and sophisticated ships.
With a displacement
of 23,460 tons, 75,000 total horsepower and an armour steel icebreaker hull no less than 48mm thick, the
Yamal is among the world's most powerful and sophisticated ships. The Yamal is equipped with a double hull. The outer
hull is 48 mm thick where ice is met and 25 mm elsewhere and there is water ballast between the inner and outer hulls. Icebreaking is assisted by an air bubbling system which can deliver 24 m³/s of water
from jets 9 m below the surface. Designed as a working vessel to keep shipping lanes open along Russia's Northern Sea Route, the Yamal is more
than capable of rising to the challenge of the heaviest ice. The ship is a model of technology - and of passenger comfort.
One of five icebreakers in this class operated by the Murmansk Shipping Company, the Yamal has taken adventurous travelers
to the North Pole since 1993.

Yamal ( Quark Expeditions) and others nuclear icebreakers like Sovietskiy Soyuz are not allowed to enter the coastal waters
of Spitsbergen. Norwegian authorities, sensitive to the ships twin hazards, says development of tourism in the area should
not include the use of nuclear powered vessels.
Built in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1992 by Murmansk Shipping Company, the nuclear icebreaker Yamal is one of five ice-breakers
in the Arktika class ("Sovetskiy Soyuz", "Arktika", "Sibir", "Rossija", "Yamal")
. This icebreaker has taken passengers to the North Pole since 1993.
The Yamal carries a maximum of 100 passengers. This icebreaker carries helicopters for reconnaissance and passenger excursions.
The Yamal and her sister ships must cruise in cold water, in order to cool their reactors. As a result, they cannot pass
through the tropics to undertake voyages in the Southern hemisphere.
