The "50 years of Victory" is the Ships name, after 50 years that has transpired since the end of World War II.

'50 Years of Victory' (50 лет Победы / 50 Let Pobedy) is the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the world. She is an engineering marvel and is powered by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower giving her the ability to break through ice up to 2.8 meters thick or nearly 10 feet of ice.

2 Steam Turbines generate electricity to run the motors that turn the screws. Refueling of uranium takes place once every 4-5 years.
