TimeLab, a media-based Russian Company, was filming for a week the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker Yamal conducting Arctic operations along the Northern Sea Route. The time-lapse presents ice-breaking operations in the Northern Sea Route.
According to TimeLab, the crew passed through the Barents Sea to Karsky around the Novaya Zemlya archipelago on the nuclear icebreaker Yamal.
The video presents the two Russian icebreakers ’50 Years of Victory’ and ‘Yamal’ with a capacity of 75,000 horsepower and a distinctive shark mouth, which appeared on it in 1994 during one of the children’s humanitarian programs.
At present, Russia has the only nuclear-powered icebreaker fleet in the world. They are used to provide wiring ships in the waters of the Northern Sea Route in the freezing ports of the Russian Federation, research expeditions, rescue operations and tourist cruises.
In addition to the extreme weather conditions, the shooting was complicated by the fact that the icebreaker was always in motion. And if the quadrocopter DJI Inspire 2 was flying over the radar tower, the recording file was damaged.
