The order for the Arctic platform can be transferred to the Admiralty Shipyards

13
The Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation proposed to entrust the construction of the North Pole platform to study the Arctic by the Admiralty Shipyards company, reports RIA News.




It is proposed to define JSC "Admiralty Shipyards" as the sole contractor for the design and construction of an ice-resistant platform. The shipyard, on its own initiative, produced a mock-up of a variant of the platform, which was presented to the country's leadership during a visit to Franz Josef Land in March 2017,
said the head of the Ministry of Environment Sergei Donskoy.

According to him, "United Shipbuilding Corporation notes the high level of technological equipment" Admiralty Shipyards ", the presence of highly skilled workers and engineers, sustainable financial condition of the company."

The final decision on the contractor will be made by the Russian government.

Earlier, the minister said that the construction of the North Pole platform, intended for year-round expeditions in the Arctic, should begin in the 2019 year, and its design - until July 2018.

“The all-season research and development platform will have a high hull strength, autonomy for fuel reserves of at least two to three years and a lifetime of about 25 years. Its appearance will allow the study of the Arctic and Antarctic to be transferred to a qualitatively new level and create the most favorable and safe working conditions for researchers, ”the article says.

According to Donskoy, “global climate change processes, including gradually decreasing ice thickness, have led to objective difficulties for the organization of the North Pole ice stations”. At the same time, such projects are “the most important factor in ensuring the Russian presence in the high-latitude Arctic, securing Russia's priority in the field of research”.

    “The all-weather research platform will have high strength of the hull, autonomy in fuel reserves of at least two to three years and a service life of about 25 years.

    I guess this one iron an ice floe that does not melt and does not prick.

      An interesting statement, as well as nothing about monitoring the Arctic oil and gas fields, says nothing, and monitoring the ice situation on the Northern Sea Route would not hurt fellow

      There is experience in building Arctic ships at this shipyard. No wonder they were assigned.

      I believe this is such an iron floe that does not melt and does not prick.

      better Arctic skeg type hovercraft platform, such as Bison:

      for one, we are forcing the construction of the Bison and ships more ...

      hi The North Pole drifting stations are used to study sea ice, the atmosphere and ecology of the Arctic, including to support the tasks of the Navy, aviation flights, issue weather forecasts, etc. Kommersant explained to Roshydromet that due to climate warming, The Arctic has reduced the number of perennial ice with a thickness of 2-3 m, the probability of breaking ice suitable for organizing drifting stations has increased. The platform should solve this problem, since it will be able to move in the ice without involving an icebreaker, it will have autonomy in fuel reserves of two to three years, built-in equipment, a helipad and a service life of 25 years.

    And acre of all science, of course naturally needed, to place sonar equipment there for tracking submarines.

      I think everything will be. It would be foolish not to seize the opportunity.

    When trying to crack the ice, the American submarine was stormed by a squad of penguin special forces from among the ice crew

      Colleague hi The penguin special forces will “swear” in Antarctica, here the special forces of polar bears and walruses are more likely to try. soldier hi
