The Baltiysky Zavod suspended the installation work in the engine room of the nuclear-powered vessel until the delivery of the unit, which is currently on the test bench of the short circuit. According to the schedule, the vessel must be fully prepared in the summer of next year. At the same time, newspaper sources claim that “it will take about one and a half years to unite the State Tretyakov Gallery with the supporting systems of an icebreaker.”
The supplier of both units with a total value of 2,7 billion rubles is Kirov-Energomash (KEM), which is part of the St. Petersburg Kirov Plant.
“During the tests of the low pressure cylinder (low pressure cylinder, one of the turbogenerator units) a number of technical deviations were revealed. At CEM, tests were suspended and representatives of a subcontractor were called in (the Ural Turbine Works, part of the Renova group) to eliminate deviations, ”said representatives of CEM.
It is reported that "Kirov-Energomash" plans to pass the TG to the beginning of March. However, the publication interlocutors at the Baltic Shipyard are skeptical about these terms.
Are they wizards there? It would be nice to get the unit by the end of March. It's not even the number of technical problems, but their "quality",said one of the sources.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade asserts that the issue of manufacturing the State Tretyakov Gallery is under the constant control of the federal ministry and the State Corporation Rosatom. In the very "Rosatom" refused to comment on the difficulties in the construction of the icebreaker.
