  • Oblique Icebreaker Baltika - Ice trials on 19 March - 10 April 2015

    Developed by Aker Arctic, the icebreaking rescue vessel Baltika is the first ship ever built with an asymmetric hull that allows her to break ice not only ahead and astern, but also sideways. In this way, the relatively small oblique icebreaker is capable of opening a wide channel in ice. Completed in 2014, the new icebreaker was scheduled to undergo full scale ice trials this winter in order to confirm the vessel´s performance. Baltika departed from Murmansk on 20 March 2015 with the Aker Arctic team on board and sailed around the northern tip of Novaya Zemlya and across the Kara Sea to the Gulf of Ob, close to the Sabetta terminal area, to carry out the ice trials. The testing program consisted of performance tests in two distinct ice thicknesses in ahead and astern directions as well a...

  • Arctic Cruise Ships Threaten Inuit Communities (HBO)

    This segment originally aired Oct. 20, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO. The Crystal Serenity in August became the largest cruise liner to ever traverse the Northwest Passage. More than 1,700 passengers and crew toured the Canadian Arctic and visited Pond Inlet, disrupting the lifestyle of its local community, comprising about 1,300 residents. "They're in our hunting zone. There's hardly any narwhals coming by," community health worker Ena Maktar said. "If the marine mammals are not there any more, that means we're going to have to travel further to go hunt for our food." Since the 1980s, Northwest Passage transits have quadrupled. Increased rates of Arctic tourism are threatening the food security of local communities. "Before the [outsiders] arrived, Inuit fended for themselves by u...

In this way, the relatively small oblique icebreaker is capable of opening a wide channel in ice. Completed in 2014, the new icebreaker was scheduled to undergo full scale ice trials this winter in order to confirm the vessel´s performance. Baltika departed from Murmansk on 20 March 2015 with the Aker Arctic team on board and sailed around the northern tip of Novaya Zemlya and across the Kara Sea to the Gulf of Ob, close to the Sabetta terminal area, to carry out the ice trials. The testing program consisted of performance tests in two distinct ice thicknesses in ahead and astern directions as well as in the oblique mode. Various operational tests were also carried out in order to determine the maneuverability and operational capability of the vessel. The thickness and strength of the ice was measured in the areas where tests were carried out. An automatic measurement system was set up to record ice loads on the ship’s hull through the whole three-week voyage which concluded in Murmansk on 10 April 2015. Although the ice conditions in the area were on the upper end of the vessel’s designed icebreaking capability and the ice in the Gulf of Ob was considerably stronger than typical sea ice, Baltika exceeded expectations and the required performance targets were passed with a clear margin. The vessel could break 1.2-metre level ice in continuous motion when proceeding bow first and could achieve a speed exceeding 3 knots in astern direction. The oblique mode, which had never been tested before in real life, also worked extremely well and the vessel fulfilled all the design requirements. During operational tests, Baltika also demonstrated excellent maneuverability and rubble clearing capability in the port of Sabetta as well as ability to penetrate heavy compressive ice ridges in the Kara Sea without ramming. According to Project Manager Mika Hovilainen who was on board the vessel during the ice trials, “Baltika’s voyage to the Gulf of Ob proves the exceptional operational capability of the oblique icebreaker concept in very difficult ice conditions. The vessel could operate in ice conditions that exceeded the design criteria used as the basis of the vessel concept. Baltika could carry out the same operations as conventional icebreakers with just half of the propulsion power as well as perform maneuvers which are not possible for any other vessel currently in service.” Baltika (IMO number 9649237) was built by Arctech Helsinki Shipyard (Helsinki, Finland) in co-operation with Shipyard Yantar JSC (Kaliningrad, Russia) based on Aker Arctic’s oblique icebreaker design , Aker ARC 100. The vessel is 76.4 metres long and has a beam of 20.5 metres, and has a diesel-electric power plant consisting of three Wärtsilä 9L26 generating sets with a combined output of 9 MW. Baltika is propelled by three 2.5 MW Steerprop azimuth thrusters, two in the stern and one in the bow of the vessel. The dynamic positioning system, which also includes the oblique icebreaking mode, has been developed by Navis Engineering. The vessel is classified by the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and its ice class is Icebreaker6. In addition to icebreaking duties, the vessel is also fitted with a built-in oil recovery system. Baltika is owned by the Federal Agency for Maritime and River Transport of Russia (Rosmorrechflot) and operated by the Russian Marine Emergency Rescue Service (FGI Gosmorspassluzhba). * * * Music by zero-project (www.zero-project.gr); used under Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) 3.0 Unported License.

The Russian Navy sends message to us navy (Russian: Военно-морской Флот Российской Федерации (ВМФ России), tr. Voyenno-morskoy Flot Rossiyskoy Federatsii (VMF Rossii), lit. Military-Maritime Fleet of the Russian Federation) is the naval arm of the Russian military. The present Russian Navy was formed in January 1992, succeeding the Navy of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which had itself succeeded the Soviet Navy following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991. The first Russian Navy was established by Peter the Great (Peter I) in October 1696. Ascribed to Peter I is the oft quoted statement: "A ruler that has but an army has one hand, but he who has a navy has both." The symbols of the Russian Navy, the St. Andrew's flag and ensign (seen to the right), and most of its traditions were established personally by Peter I. Neither Jane's Fighting Ships or the International Institute for Strategic Studies list any standard ship prefixs for the vessels of the Russian Navy. For official U.S. Navy photographs, they are sometimes referred to as "RFS" — "Russian Federation Ship". However, the Russian Navy does not use this convention for itself. The Russian Navy possesses the vast majority of the former Soviet naval forces, and currently comprises the Northern Fleet, the Russian Pacific Fleet, the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the Russian Baltic Fleet, the Russian Caspian Flotilla, Naval Aviation, and the coastal troops (consisting of the naval infantry and the coastal missile and artillery troops). Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The Arctic (/ˈɑrktɪk/ or /ˈɑrtɪk/) is a polar region located at the northernmost part of the Earth. The Arctic consists of the Arctic Ocean and parts of Canada, Russia, the United States (Alaska), Denmark (Greenland), Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland. The Arctic region consists of a vast, ice-covered ocean, surrounded by treeless permafrost. The area can be defined as north of the Arctic Circle (66° 33'N), the approximate limit of the midnight sun and the polar night. Alternatively, it can be defined as the region where the average temperature for the warmest month (July) is below 10 °C (50 °F); the northernmost tree line roughly follows the isotherm at the boundary of this region.[1][2] The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. It is larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in terms of battle fleet tonnage, according to one estimate.[5][6] The U.S. Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 10 in service, one under construction (two planned), and two in reserve. The service has 317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It operates 285 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.[3] The United States of America (USA or U.S.A.), commonly referred to as the United States (US or U.S.), America, or simply the States, is a federal republic[10][11] consisting of 50 states and a federal district. The 48 contiguous states and the federal district of Washington, D.C. are in central North America between Canada and Mexico. The state of Alaska is the northwestern part of North America, west of Canada and east of Russia which is across the Bering Strait in Asia, and the state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-North Pacific. The country also has five populated and nine unpopulated territories in the Pacific and the Caribbean. The US exercises full international defense authority and responsibility for three states through Compact of Free Association with Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Palau. A warship is a ship that is built and primarily intended for combat.

For full Everest and other mountaineering documentaries, see my playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEq-_K2Ii0oGkxhq49Wl_gKI8fwHg-JVR The greatest geographical prize of its day was the search for the fabled Northwest Passage through the island maze of Arctic Canada. In 1845, Great Britain mounted an all-out assault with a lavishly equipped expedition that was never heard from again. Then in the early 1900s, a little-known Norwegian adventurer set forth in a secondhand fishing boat and succeeded beyond all expectation. This two-hour special answers the riddle of why one failed and the other made it. Hour one provides new details on the Franklin expedition, whose fate was one of the great mysteries of the 19th century. Even today, the manner of the expedition's demise is an ongoing detective story, with clues and new interpretations still emerging over 150 years after the explorers inexplicably disappeared. Hour two tells how Roald Amundsen rewrote the book on Arctic exploration by stressing simplicity and adaptability, and in the process completed the first crossing of the Northwest Passage exactly 100 years ago. (To follow the paths of both expeditions, see Tracing the Routes.) For centuries, explorers were convinced that a route could be found through the islands and ice floes of northern Canada that would cut months off the arduous sea voyage between Europe and the Pacific. But every time someone tried, ice blocked the way. Determined to succeed, the British Navy refitted two warships and assigned its most experienced Arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin, to command. The vessels were stocked with every convenience and a three-year supply of food, much of it canned—a relatively new technology. Departing England in 1845, the 129 men seemingly vanished off the face of the Earth. In 1848, the Navy dispatched the first of many search parties, which eventually found the site of Franklin's first wintering camp on Beechey Island in the High Arctic, including the graves of three seamen. Modern tests show that the sailors died of tuberculosis but were also suffering from lead poisoning, probably caused by the solder used to seal their tinned food. The finding suggests that the entire crew may have been affected to varying degrees by excessive lead, which causes fatigue, confusion, and paranoia. Over the years, more searching has turned up a strange collection of further clues (see, for one of the most telling, The Note in the Cairn). These point to an expedition trapped in the ice, slowly dying off, desperately devising strategies to escape, and finally resorting to cannibalism. Ironically, as Franklin's men were perishing, they had periodic contact with native Inuit, who subsisted quite well in the High Arctic thanks to their small numbers and highly evolved hunting and survival skills. There is no evidence that the Franklin party adopted any Inuit methods. This lesson was not lost on Roald Amundsen, a young Norwegian whose study of the Franklin disaster led him to an entirely different approach. Instead of treating Arctic exploration as a siege, in which a fully modern world is transported en masse to an unforgiving place, Amundsen determined to travel light and live like the Inuit as much as possible (see My Life as an Explorer). Where the Franklin expedition comprised over 100 men, Amundsen's consisted of only seven; where Franklin commanded deep-water ships, Amundsen piloted a battered, 30-year-old sealer that had proven its worth at moving nimbly though shallows and ice floes; where Franklin's men dragged a provision-filled lifeboat across the snow when they had to go overland, Amundsen used an Inuit-style sled and dogs. Success came in August 1905, after two years battling the ice and weather, when Amundsen encountered a whaling ship sailing from San Francisco. (He overwintered once more before completing the Passage in 1906.) Amundsen had proven that a path, albeit a difficult one, existed across the top of the world—for anyone bold enough to take it.

Like this and you might also enjoy my similar video about transiting the "Northeast Passage on an Icebreaker" (https://youtu.be/VQReGCLCUX8). An in-depth video of a voyage through the Arctic Ocean ice to the geographic North Pole on the nuclear powered icebreaker '50 Years of Victory'. Leaving the North Pole, we visited Franz Josef Land before sailing back to Murmansk. Along the way we saw polar bears, walruses, seals and birds. '50 Years of Victory' (50 лет Победы / 50 Let Pobedy) is the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the world. She is an engineering marvel and is powered by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower giving her the ability to break through ice up to 2.8 meters thick or nearly 10 feet of ice. The 50 Years of Victory has an endurance of 5 years before she needs refuelling with new uranium. The reactors eliminate greenhouse gas emissions that are characteristic of ships burning fossil fuels.

http://www.friends.ca/ Overpriced Arctic patrol ships? Irving announces layoffs at Halifax shipyard as renovations begin HALIFAX -- The Irving Shipyard in Halifax will begin laying off part of its workforce by the end of September as the site prepares for $300 million in renovations to start building a new fleet of navy ships. Scott Jamieson, vice-president of programs at the shipyard, says the move is necessary to proceed with the construction of new facilities. Jamieson couldn't give the number of employees to be laid off, but says a number of trades will be affected at the site, which employs about 900 shipyard workers. He says the company hopes some of those workers will be recalled when work on six to eight Arctic offshore patrol vessels begins in 2015. The company received a $260 million loan from the provincial government in March 2012 to help with the shipyard's upgrades, which will include the construction of an assembly hall and painting facilities. Irving has awarded $127.7 million in contracts since it won a $25-billion deal in October 2011 to build 21 combat vessels for the navy. The federal government was warned by advisers that the contract for Arctic patrol ships was overpriced, but signed it
