It is extremely impressive to see an icebreaker struggling through perpetual ice areas. Since 1989 the nuclear-powered icebreakers have also been used for tourist purposes carrying passengers to the North Pole.
Nuclear-powered icebreakers are much more powerful than their diesel-powered counterparts, and although nuclear propulsion is expensive to install and maintain, very heavy fuel demands and limitations on range can make diesel vessels less practical and economical overall for these ice-breaking duties.
