Innovative approach to the further development of infrastructure facilities in the Arctic and the Arctic zone

In the article authors consider the prospects for the intensification of the development of the Arctic and the Arctic zone due to the use of various objects built on floating structures and delivered to the Arctic as the end product. Authors analyzed in general the problems of these boats associated with the Arctic conditions and also their solutions which use the unique experimental facilities of the Krylov state research centre and the best practices of scientific research

Keywords: floating objects, experimental facilities, intensification of the Arctic development , ice conditions
