The ship repair complex of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation will begin work in Syrian Tartus

22
The implementation of a project to create a new infrastructure facility for the Russian Navy in the Syrian port of Tartus is reported. Recall that in Tartus there is a logistics point for Russian ships. Two years ago, Moscow and Damascus signed an agreement that the Russian Navy's MTO point in Tartus will be deployed for 49 years with the possibility of extending the lease term.


The ship repair complex of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation will begin work in Syrian Tartus


TASS News Agency, citing its own informed source, today reports that in Tartus in the coming weeks (until the end of August) the Black Sea repair complex will enter operational readiness fleet Russian Navy.

It is noted that the new complex will allow minor repairs of both surface ships and submarines that are part of a permanent operational connection in the Mediterranean.

Source TASS adds that the necessary equipment, including modern machine tools, has already been sent to Syria to create a ship repair complex.

For reference: to date, Russian ships in the Mediterranean Sea have been repaired with the help of floating workshops of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, if necessary. The floating workshops, like the warships themselves, were replaced on a rotational basis. The average shift time for a floating workshop is about six months.

    Yeah, over time, we’ll create a shipyard there, and build our own wind carriers on it. ..

      This ship repair complex now allows the Black Sea Fleet boats to be brought out to the Mediterranean Sea for "repair", which means formally fulfill the paragraphs of the Straits Treaty

          I do not think that there is a benefit. But let's see.

            Sergei hi -first of all, the benefit of the place itself is the new shipyard, and secondly, the lack of restrictions on the construction of ships with nuclear power plants. ..

              I will not argue with the first, but do not forget that Syria is under severe sanctions.

              It’s just impossible to build them there ... Words God already has enough shipyards in Russia. You just imagine how many years it takes to build such ships, and during this time it can happen there that mother does not grieve, and the proximity of Israel should not be reset

                The removal of minor ship repair to the Mediterranean Sea is necessary both from an economic point of view and so that the Black Sea Fleet can be more actively present outside the Black Sea.

        And there will be no need to drive ships to Novorossiysk and Sevastopol if it can be repaired in Tartus. If we are entrenched in the Eastern Mediterranean, is it time to think about another point, for example, in Libya? Maybe not now, but you need to think about it.

            If you have everywhere it is very expensive. In Venezuela, it would be ideal to have a naval base and a shipyard / pier.

        It is also necessary to put a floating dock there, for ships up to 10-15KT, then it will be possible to dock without leaving the Mediterranean Sea Squadron, or, as it is customary to say today, an Operational Connection. Yes, and docking is not as long about time as nav. repair - only 7-10 days, and again at sea.

          I think over time we will dig in Syria seriously and for a long time. Especially since we are welcome there.

          A thought about the floating dock was taken directly from the tongue. I think there will be one along with the shipyard \ ship repair center.

    Of course, a solution was found, but on earth it is still better. Now the main protection is on, above, and below.

    There was only one floating workshop in Tartus for a long time, now, it turns out, there will be several of them, and on land, probably, only warehouses?
