Media: Helicopter construction to begin at Severnaya Verf in 2020

The Russian Ministry of Defense and the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) have agreed that the construction of domestic helicopter carriers will begin in 2020 at the shipyard “Severnaya Verf”, reports TASS, citing a source in the Russian military-industrial complex.

The Russian Defense Ministry and USC came to the agreement that the contractor for the helicopter carriers and destroyers Leader would be the Severnaya Verf enterprise, which is already conducting a large-scale reconstruction of production facilities for this, including the erection of a workshop to build ships of these classes.

Media: Helicopter construction to begin at Severnaya Verf in 2020

It is planned that first the plant will build two helicopter carriers, and then proceed with the construction of destroyers. Development work on helicopter carriers will begin in 2018, in 2020 it is planned to begin construction of the lead ship with its delivery the fleet in the year 2024. The production of the first and only serial helicopter carrier is scheduled to begin in 2022 with delivery in 2026
- clarified the source.

There is currently no official confirmation of this information.

Earlier, Military Survey reported that at the end of November 2017, the construction of a new slipway with a height of 75 meters began at the Severnaya Verf shipbuilding plant in St. Petersburg. After the construction is completed, the shipyard will be able to build ships of the first and second rank for the Russian Navy. The construction of the boathouse is designed for two construction sites in which it will be possible to build ships of the type Leader destroyer, icebreakers, and any large-capacity civilian ships. The construction of a new shipbuilding complex is expected to be completed by 2020 year.

    It would be nice if this news comes true. The first helicopter carrier would be very useful for the Mediterranean.

      In any case it will come true, there should be no doubt, the main thing is that no one let us down with the deadlines. And what interesting plans do they plan to install EU?

        Ships old in the navy. Recently, in addition, the BDK Yamal of the Black Sea Fleet was damaged.

            As regards this, the Defense Ministry is silent as usual. Meanwhile, the BDK "Orsk" and "Yamal" carried out in December 2017 firing off the coast of Crimea. 20 December, the crews of the large landing ships "Orsk" and "Yamal" performed artillery fire on sea, coastal and air targets. This was reported in the press service of the Black Sea Fleet. A photo for January 2018 from A. Balabin.

            recourse ... It seems that someone bowed the bow and the deck (with rafts) forwards (nose), the main gangway also suffered:

        Yes, today it was reported that Putin GPV has not yet signed.
        2 helicopter carrier IMHO a little. 4 necessary. As they were going along the Mistrals.
        It’s interesting what kind of project they will build, like the Japanese (with F-35)? hi

      It is only interesting that I am interested in the construction of a merchant fleet. As well as new cruise ships. The information is extremely scarce and it seems that we have very few ships under construction for new projects - and the merchant and cruise fleet are dilapidated and extremely outdated. Can anyone share the links?

      On this topic. Do we need helicopter carriers? What are the tasks for them in our fleet? We need KDK, it’s a fact, but helicopter carriers in the modern world ... Well, we would have had a project or ready-made development of a vertical take-off and landing airplane .. Aircraft AWACS. Another thing is that such a boathouse is an extremely necessary thing all the more so in St. Petersburg where a large industrial hub of the country is concentrated. And this is important in economic terms.

        I can’t send you links - I can say from the words of the shipowners and captains: The merchant fleet in the Russian Federation is updated today with new ships from Japan (2016 or 17 were purchased in 4-6, of which 2 are wagons and 1 tanker) and South Korea (3 or 4 of which 1 gas carrier)! Cruisers (2 units) are laid and are being built in Finland. Was it infa that a couple of small cruisers are being built in Croatia? So something like this - about 500 - 000 are being built abroad!

            Yes, indeed - Since December 2014, the 100% stake in Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has been owned by the Russian United Shipbuilding Corporation.
            Thanks - KudrevKN and Muvka. There will be something to dig in the internet.

        Basically build a river-sea. Tankers and dry container carriers. Lot. The projects are quite progressive. Consumer goods sea - not a single enterprise with Hyundai / Deu / Samsung / Sumitomo / Chinese can compete with the Chinese. It’s faster, cheaper and even more reliable, plus no problems with the project, registration and design. Narrow specialist - no competencies, so the same flagship gas carrier Yamalmakh ordered DSME.

        Similarly with passengers, they mostly build a trifle. Like the same new Comets / Meteors.

        As for UDC / DKVD - this is the most popular class of ships in the world now. UDC builds Turkey. Australia has already received. China is building immediately the 2 UDC of the 075 project in parallel in addition to the 4 (and another 2 is being built - only 6 has been ordered) DKVD 071. Smaller fleets - also order to buy. Brazil - Ocean in England. Peru - 2 Makasara in Indonesia. Philippines - 2 Tarlaka is also in Indonesia. Algeria - San Jorge in Italy. Chile - Fudr in France. Taiwan - Endurance in Singapore.

        This class is unique in its need. Need to drive the pirates? There is nothing better. Need to show the flag in the Papuans? High% availability (200-280 days a year), a large resource, an impressive appearance and a lot of different things that can be put up for demonstration. It is necessary to transfer equipment - elementary. Even if you take Syria - it is trite as a transport of turntables, it will already be justified and more profitable than driving Ruslans and Ila. Need help? It’s so easy to set up a hospital, load humanitarian aid, pick up refugees / their citizens and danger zones. Plus, for its intended purpose (amphibious operations), it is much more flexible than a regular BDK.

      Terms are unrealistic. By 2020, they can lay it in time, although the question is whether they will manage to modernize the shipyards by this time. And before the end of modernization, there is nowhere to build a ship of such a displacement as the udk of the Northern Shipyard. Now, as far as I remember, there is a restriction of about 11k.
      But even if they suddenly manage to modernize the shipyards and lay the lead ship, they won’t build it in 4 years. It will be built at least 8-9 years. For a period of 4 years, only a ship from the fifth can leave if they are ordered so much. request

      something I did not quite understand why helicopter carrier so needed by the Mediterranean
      universal landing ship with helicopters and ample opportunities to support the group from transporting personnel and equipment to the headquarters and floating base yes, it is needed, but why a helicopter carrier? This sea has become quite crowded. And many functions of a helicopter carrier can be performed by other forces. Was it not clear from the experience of Minsk that it was not so necessary?

    This decision was to be expected, I just hope that future projects: destroyers, helicopter carriers, updated frigates, will initially be designed for Russian components. That these ships would not become such protracted as 11356, 22350, and the like.
    And as a whole, the plant is not bad, I would like to remind you that in due time it built about 50-rather large ships of the projects 1154 / 55, pr 56, pr 956, pr 58, pr 61, pr 1134. So the company has competencies and experience.

    Crimean Shipyard - Shipyard "wagons" attached to the "train" - a large shipyard OSK! What is correct, in general! It would be correct to attach a trailer to the Severnaya Verf shipyard - the Kerch Shipyard Zaliv! And it is precisely on the "Gulf" to build 2-4 UBDK - a helicopter carrier !? And do not occupy the construction sites in the "SV" boathouse, which are necessary for EM? All the best to you, Friends! By the way, does anyone know - the creator (general designer) of armaments and his relatives, after his death, have the right to AUTHOR REWARDS as writers or composers?

        You can't harness a cow and a trembling doe in one cart, Colleague! With all RESPECT for HUNTERS (and they really are the best in Russia who can quickly and efficiently build ships!), But the production capacities of these plants are comparable as David and Goliath? Tankers were built at the Gulf with a deadweight of up to 150 tons, and at the ZSSZ 000 tons were built !?

          The bay is half killed from the Ukrainian devastation, it needs to be restored and equipment modernized, personnel that are not needed, and all this is necessary for at least 10 years ....... so for him now and 5000 tons of cable ship is the ceiling and a celebration! !!

        I did not say anything about boathouse. But it is not a fact that it will be helicopters that begin to build in it, and not destroyers and icebreakers. The article with reference to the "source" refers specifically to their construction.

    Most importantly, the technology of modular construction will be mastered.
    That is, modules are built and then connected to the ship.
    There will be no single array starting from the bookmark.

    The next not smart unfounded statements ... What kind of helicopter carriers can we talk about if the Russian fleet does not have escort ships for them ?! The Russian fleet has only three new frigates 11356 and nothing else that could at least to some extent become an escort for a helicopter carrier .. You should build at least 4 destroyers before announcing the construction of helicopter carriers or aircraft carriers ...

    The lead helicopter carrier will begin to be built in 2020, in 2024 it will be transferred to the fleet.
    The only helicopter carrier will begin to be built in 2022, the fleet will be surrendered in 2026.
    It seems to me alone or will they build one ship twice? Is the author of the quote all right with his head?

    God grant! The main thing is that they finally deal with power plants and start mass production of their own. And taking into account the mistakes of past years, they did not build 10-12 years, what can be built in 3-4 years.
