SovComFlot: Participates in Rosatomflot’s anniversary voyage to North Pole




SovComFlot participates in Rosatomflot’s anniversary voyage to North Pole

Rosatomflot’s nuclear-powered icebreaker 50 Let Pobedy returned to the port of Murmansk on 23 August 2017, successfully completing a voyage to the North Pole to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the icebreaker Arktika reaching the northernmost point of our planet.


On 17 August 1977, the icebreaker Arktika, commanded by the legendary Captain Yury Kuchiyev, became the world’s first surface ship to reach the North Pole. The expedition was led by the Soviet Minister of Merchant Marine Timofey Guzhenko (1918–2008), who would go on to co-found Sovcomflot. The company’s history is thus closely linked to that famous voyage.
