Boosting the efficiency is the all-new automated digital control system. The ship, designed with a stainless steel ice belt 5 meters (18 feet) wide, breaks through ice up to 2.5 meters (9.2 feet) thick. The icebreaker is driven by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower. In open water, top speed can be as much as 21.4 knots.

The 50 Years of Victory's two nuclear reactors are encased in 160 tons of steel, high density concrete and water. The system's double vacuum stills produce five tons of fresh water per hour. The reactors direct steam to two turbines, which in turn power six generators driving three massive propellers, each with four seven-ton blades. The Yamal's high-efficiency propulsion system meets all international environmental and safety standards.
