As reported by ITAR-TASS, Rosatom can become a customer of icebreakers of the “Leader” type. This was stated at the VEF-2018 head of the state corporation Alexei Likhachev.

As he said, in the near future it is necessary to be defined, who will be the state customer of icebreakers “Leader”.

“Here options are possible. Maybe it will be the Ministry of Industry, maybe we will. For those icebreakers that are currently being built at the Baltic plant, we are state customers, so we are not afraid of this, “Likhachev said.

At the same time, he stressed that at present there is no ready-made plant capable of building such icebreakers as the “Leader”: “Any plant, whatever it takes, must build up its competence and production capacities.”
