Additional funds will be allocated for the completion of the Viktor Chernomyrdin icebreaker

By the end of the year, United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) will receive from the budget another 870 million rubles. for the completion of the diesel-electric icebreaker LC-25 "Viktor Chernomyrdin", reports Kommersant.

The money will be transferred to the authorized capital of the USC and subsequently will be transferred to the accounts of the first Baltic plant, which originally built the icebreaker, and then the Admiralty Shipyards, which began its completion in the summer.

The funds will be transferred “to pay off losses incurred in connection with the completion of construction,” explained the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

According to the newspaper’s source, “the losses are connected with the influence of external and internal negative factors of the economy, currency fluctuations and the need to attract loans.”

“Contract in 7,9 billion rubles. on LK-25 FSUE "Rosmorport" and USC concluded in 2011 year. The customer was supposed to get an icebreaker in 2015, but Baltzavod had problems with the project: the designer was changed several times, as a result, the development was transferred to Nizhny Novgorod Vympel Design Bureau, which is part of the USC. Because of this, the ship had to be reworked already “in metal”, which took a lot of time and effort. In the year 2014, with the devaluation of the ruble, imported equipment went up in price, which led to an increase in construction costs, ”the material says.

In the summer, USC transferred LC-25 to the construction of the Admiralty Shipyards.

In September, a tender appeared on the state procurement site that revealed the legal mechanism of the transfer: Baltzavod attracted Admiralty Shipyards to construction as a contractor. “The main issues were caused by the price and terms of work specified in the tender:“ Admiralty Shipyards ”pledged to complete the construction of an icebreaker for 3,7 billion rubles. by June 2019 of the year (30 of September 2018 of the year is to be officially surrendered), the publication notes.

Meanwhile, USC says that 3,7 billion rubles. - expert review.

“It includes not yet selected funds under the contract. Materials are currently being prepared for price examination based on the results of the development of the ship’s project documentation in the final construction and taking into account the actual costs of equipment, materials and other factors. Only according to the results of the examination, it will be possible to talk about the size of the missing funds, taking into account the allocated support, ”the corporation explained.

Currently, the readiness of the icebreaker is estimated at 55%.

        We already have 40 icebreakers ... here the question is stupidly for future superprofits for the development of hydrocarbons in the Arctic.
        But do we really need less destroyers and cruisers, the construction of which is not even spelled out in the new military rearmament program until the age of 27?

    They say what you call a ship, so it will sail. BLACK MYRDIN! How does it sound! Song! Probably will swim in the same way as Victor said? How did the bull piss? And is the tongue-tied Vitya worthy of such honor? He brought the country to default and dumped everything on the kinsurprise. Scoundrel. For this they want to perpetuate it? Can't you find a more worthy person in Russia? What kind of mockery?

      Well, thank you for not calling Anatoly Chubais ... Are there really no other names for the icebreaker, even among the same Arctic explorers, famous navigators? Here, really, "as you call a yacht, so it will float."

      Because it will swim, and not walk on oceans. Yes, and swim near the mooring wall .....
      I would not be surprised if, after its transfer to the fleet, some troubles with mechanisms, a set of hulls, etc. begin.

      And then “Viktor Chernomyrdin” ... what is famous and what to expect from the ship named after him ... apparently the result will be the same ..

      The customer was supposed to receive an icebreaker in 2015, but Baltzavod had problems with the project: the designer was changed several times, as a result, the development was transferred to the Vympel design bureau in Nizhny Novgorod, which is part of the USC.

      LK-25 did not have a change in the project, but an adjustment of the huge jamb of the first designer - an overload of the ICE, a project mismatching the customer’s task and the impossibility of using the ICE according to the task. ICH, it turned out already during the construction of the ICE - at the stage when it was no longer possible to solve the problem with little blood.
      ... several scientific and technical advices were held, on which the disadvantages of the CPAP and the discrepancy between the characteristics of the LK-25 and the specified TP were identified, independent designation of Iceberg Central Design Bureau LK-25 precipitation in the developed MPAP (in some documents submitted to RMRS the maximum siege was 10,2 m, in others - 10,5 m), as well as the fact the lack of agreement by the Developer and the State Customer on changes made to the main dimensions and characteristics of the icebreaker;
      - in the iceberg designed by the Central Design Bureau “Iceberg”, the LK-25 overweight of project 22600 reached 2500 tons;
      - the main reason for the inevitability, in full, of the advantage gained - in the development of the ICP TsKB “Iceberg”, the concept of the hull structure was changed with respect to the technical decisions adopted in the TS;
      - Considering the hull structures already manufactured at the BPS, it is not possible to return to the hull structure in the TP concept in full. Compensation for a constructive increase in weight loads and ensuring a maximum draft of 9,7 meters, with a specified value of 9,5 meters in the transformer substation, are possible when implementing additional design decisions and processing on the basis of them the entire MPC, which will lead to a decrease in the weight of the vessel when empty and to ensure the specified characteristics of the vessel ;
      In this situation, the BSS was terminated the contract with the Iceberg Central Design Bureau for the development of the DSP and a new contract was signed with the Vympel Design Bureau (the developer of the DSP icebreaker with a capacity of about 16 MW of the 21900M project), and a roadmap was developed to ensure that, as far as possible, the basic functional and technical characteristics of the LK-25 required by the State Contract, the development of decisions to minimize the possible overweight of the vessel and to achieve maximum draft of the icebreaker - 9,65 - 9,7 meters.

It’s time for Putin to think more about his actions and their consequences ... I also found a name for ship ... Kuram laughing ...

      As they called it, it “floats”. I won’t be surprised if, after completion, instead of the Arctic, he goes to serve in the tropics.
