Kalashnikov ordered the construction of new ships Kometa

30
The budget 1,2 billion rubles, added to the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) for preferential leasing, will be used to build new passenger Komets on the order of the Kalashnikov concern, reports Kommersant.




As Boris Kabakov, director of the shipbuilding and marine engineering department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, explained, “2,4 billion rubles, which additionally allocates the budget to the authorized capital of USC for preferential leasing, will go to the corporation in the near future,” of which 1,24 billion rubles. go to passenger ships, the rest - to transport.

Passenger - these are three “Comets” on hydrofoils, which are being built by the “Kalashnikov” concern at the Vympel shipbuilding plant in Rybinsk. The first new "Comet" is launched this October. Perhaps the order will be transferred to the Feodosia shipyard "Sea".

According to Kabakov, from 2018, as part of an instruction from the president, to resume the Azov-Black Sea high-speed passenger lines, the experienced Kometa will start on the route Yalta-Sevastopol, the route of two more ships is being specified. Kalashnikov plans to build three more Comets in order to connect Krasnodar Krai with the Crimea.

We count on the transport and tourist component. It is planned to extend the route to Feodosia, Kerch and Anapa, possibly to Sochi. We are interested in the program, since the “More” shipyard in Feodosia works in cooperation with Vimpel (“The Sea is transferred to Kalashnikov’s management) and the completion of subsequent ships, and the construction of two fully Komets is already planned at the Feodosia shipyard.” , - said the Minister of Industrial Policy of Crimea Andriy Vasuta.

According to Andrey Vasyuta, “Kalashnikov” is the customer of the ships and organizes the operators.

Now it is decided who will be the participant of the operator, perhaps the regions will enter there - Crimea, Sevastopol, Krasnodar Territory, perhaps there will be a private company. There is no final decision.
he said.

The region is counting on the popularity of routes, citing high demand in the USSR.

A newspaper source in the industry reported that the cost of the lead ship 600 million rubles. Vympel had no competence on comets, so it was built quite a long time (from 2013 onwards), he noted, so the transfer of the order to the experienced “Sea” looks logical (up to 1981 on, Comet was built on the Feodosia Shipbuilding Plant ).

      I think that the comparison with the USSR will not roll. Ticket prices are likely to be sky-high.

        Samara-Tolyatti 400 rubles ... 72 km. travel time is two hours ... two intermediate stops .... For comparison, the bus ... the same two hours ticket from 273 rubles ...

        Yes, and the boat, although beautiful, but thinner! In the USSR, the "Comet" was more powerful (another project, what was strange to her?), And could work in the coastal zone.But thanks anyway for starting to climb!

            ...Yes. Exactly recourse
            A source in the industry says that the cost of the lead vessel is 600 million rubles. Vympel did not have the competencies for “Comets”, which is why it was built quite a long time (since 2013), he notes, and transferring an order to the experienced Sea looks logical. The head of the Infoline Analytics agency, Mikhail Burmistrov, notes that during the construction of the first Comet Vympel faced ruble devaluation, a sharp increase in component prices, and the need to purchase equipment. As a result, he said, both the budget and the project timeline (initially a little over 200 million rubles and about a year) were exceeded. The expert believes that the budget of the three "Comets" (an average of just over 400 million rubles per vessel) is adequate to the actual costs of the first vessel, taking into account optimization when placing it in series.

            ... and I really wanted to ride fellow drinks

    In childhood, my dad rode on such wink the truth is I was still very small and I don’t remember that) But in general the news is good. Fast transport and plus everything is very interesting to ride such a boat! In the USSR, they were very popular, including by tourists

    I think that these ships are promising of course. A ticket is certainly cheaper than a cruise ship. About thirty-five years ago it happened on the Comet along the Danube and the Black Sea. It was just wonderful on the river, but there was a wave and not much sea feeling.

      It’s too lazy to find the difference between the modern “Comet” and the old project. The ICE energy economy is primarily changed.

    I think that the comparison with the USSR will not roll. Ticket prices are likely to be sky-high.

    Such "Comets" (or "Meteor" etc) were scrapped on almost all rivers where there were no subsidies for river passenger transport. And he sailed through Pechora - now not. I don’t know how much the ticket will cost, but I suspect that its price will be comparable to the airfare. For example, passenger ferries (barge with a tugboat) go today from Pechora from Naryan-Mar to Ust-Tsilma. Passengers carry for 2000 r. one way. In 2011, Pomnitsa, there was a passenger boat for 5000 p. one way. How much the Comet will cost today in Pechora - I don’t even dare to predict. By plane it’s obviously cheaper.

      After the collapse of the Union, comets, Colchids, etc., were sold abroad in large numbers (I don’t know where - how it was, but when they sawed the NWP, many boats were sold to Greece / Spain / the Caribbean). And the Meteors ran mainly along the rivers.

    "The region counts on the popularity of routes, citing the high demand in the Soviet Union," this is correct, so count. Only you gentlemen and correctly calculate the price of tickets! There will be reasonable prices, there will be demand, otherwise ....

      Right. If I want to ride from Anapa to Feodosia, and the tickets for this Meteor will be equal to the plane ticket, then what will I choose?

    If everything is well counted and they come up with how to reduce the price of a ticket or add a service so that you don’t mind paying money to fly over water, then it’s a ride. Purely transferring Soviet experience is too naive a decision. So I was a student in the session every day I went to the pool for 50 kopecks and it was easy and simple for me, but now .. now I have such prices and such opportunities that I was not in the pool for 8 years)))

    during the USSR, the comet Sevastopol-Yalta-Novorossiysk the price of the ticket is like a plane ...... at 6,00 departure from Sevastopol-15,00 arrival in Novorossiysk ... 9 hours on the way !!!! after 1,5 hours of travel I want to jump overboard, stuff, pitching, the roar of engines ..... after a trip 2 days, shakes, and buzzes in my ears ......

    Everything is certainly wonderful, but it is worth considering the quick commissioning of the Crimean bridge at the current high level of motorization. No matter how you configure extra ships.

    yes, guys! you’ve remembered the Soviet era, well, I’ll add my penny: I somehow drove one vessel from the Baltic to the Black Sea and in Rostov got a little stuck waiting for a pilot and bridge layout. They went and one sailor lagged behind (toli beer, toli Don wine shibanulo into my head), but I was not at a loss even with the help of colleagues on the “meteors” on the Rostov-Taganrog-Kerch-Anapa route ... etc. I got to Poti. This is how passenger traffic was developed by high-speed ships. well, so about the fact that the people of Petrodvorets preferred to visit the sea in summer I generally keep quiet.

    Cool boat. I remember in Soviet times, there were a dozen or four of them running along the Black Sea. Like trams: Odessa - Koblevo-Kherson-Yalta. They even reached Novorossiysk. At the end of the 80's there were more and more Albatross and Cyclone. I remember, once I got into it in a storm (we came out with a storm warning), an unforgettable feeling)))

      So, at that time ordinary passenger boats as minibuses sailed along the Crimean coast by sea. Yalta, Alushta, Frunzenskoye, Alupka, Swallow's Nest, Botanical Garden, and so on - every hour and a half on a boat. I wonder where they are all now. Most of these boats were brand new.

    "Perhaps the order will be transferred to the Feodosia shipyard" Sea ".
    Keyword is possible. Apart from the first workshop, the SZ “More” does not have space today. Actually, they used to be assembled in it, but the workshop is in a deplorable state. That is, first you need to restore it, and only then ... And this is a long business (tea does not repair the kitchen) and expensive. And the second question is who will do it? All the main workers went over to Pella, aware of all these issues.
