“How to follow the Russians?”: Norwegian largest ship banned from going to sea


The construction of the largest ship of the Norwegian Navy required more than 10 years and approximately $ 250 million. However, after five months of service, its operation was banned.


According to Aftenposten, the latest integrated supply ship KMN Maud with a displacement of 27,5 thousand tons is capable of transporting 9,3 million liters of fuel, as well as 400 tons of cargo, including ammunition; It has its own workshop, a hangar for two helicopters, an operating room and a hospital with 44 beds.

In May, he was baptized. But now it will not be able to go to sea at least until the second quarter of 2020, until malfunctions and shortcomings are eliminated.

The Norwegian certification organization DNV GL banned the use of the ship due to the fact that it poses a danger to the crew. The inspectors found the unsatisfactory condition of the material and technical base and the lack of proper maintenance.

Experts believe that this was caused by a two-year downtime at the pier of the South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering shipyard, which barely survived bankruptcy. During this time, the ship was not given proper “care”.

It’s very disappointing that the ship should be moored in just five months

- said the head of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and defense Anniken Whitfeldt, who had already become his godmother.

In her words, this promises problems for combat potential. fleet amid the loss of the frigate Helge Ingstad, which will go to scrap after a collision with a tanker.

As Stole Ulriksen of the Naval Academy notes, the temporary loss of KMN Maud is a blow to “Norway’s great ambitions to contribute to NATO forces.” According to him, more frigates cannot do without a supply ship, and a smaller number is unacceptable, because you need to "monitor what the Russians are doing":

We never know when the Russians will sail, and then the frigates must be ready.

    Well done. It is better to spend money than to pay with the blood of sailors for the mistakes of shipbuilders.

      It is better not to make mistakes during the operation of the ship, which lead to similar consequences, colleague. But the main emphasis in the article is not on caring for personnel, but on the fact that the condition of the ship prevented its owners from once again bending to the owners! hi

    Well done, at least - everything is honest and open. This is not something to swim into the sea on Chinese tractor diesels and break off in the open sea, so that later the tugboats drag the pride of the Navy for repairs under the laughter and hooting.

      The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) is included in the IACS, as well as the DNV GL.

        right, but that is not the answer. as far as I know, our “civil register” has nothing to do with the Navy — other requirements and criteria for ships than for ships. or also has and can prohibit access to the sea by Potkova on the basis of an insufficient number of symbols? that is the question.

          Well ... as far as I understand in sausage scraps, this Norwegian vessel is not just a warship :) it is a tanker, etc., of "integrated supply". From here and dance.

      Yes, our auxiliary fleet ships are also built under the register of RMRS, accepted by the register, and only then military. before Direct analogy with the tacker of integrated supply pr.23130 Academician Pashin. The same with tugs for the Navy. In fact, this was done because of the understanding of the failure in the competence of military representatives (where should it come from if the ships were almost not built for the fleet), and also for the possibility of auxiliary vessels entering the foreign ports (it must meet the requirements of the IACS), therefore the contract for the construction and specifications originally laid down compliance, including the RMRS rules and the contract for technical supervision of the construction by the inspectors of the Register. But, frankly, the qualifications of inspectors of classification societies (here that DNV, that RMRS, that Bureau Veritas, etc.) leaves much to be desired. To know how it should be - you need to have experience in designing construction, otherwise all these volumes of rules are "dead reading", it becomes "alive" when you use it and are interested in it, that is. during design and construction, and inspectors are often deprived of this experience.
      In general, there is not a single steamboat of serious displacement without errors. There are simply “errors” and there are “Errors”.

    Fontastishen! Ships fuel л fuel, not т? 9,3 million liters of fuel = 9,3 thousand tons of fuel, more modest. 9300 tons of fuel / 400 tons of supply cargo +2 helicopters with a hangar. So this is a tanker with an enema chamber. An interesting decision by the Norwegians, combining a tanker with a hospital at 27 thousand tons. Brad about stability in ocean operations. Clinic. After all, for 250 lyam they could build faster, but 2 ships in less.

    "the head of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and defense Anniken Whitfeldt" - directly Enikey Skovorodker laughing
    "In her words, this bodes down to problems for the combat potential of the fleet amid the loss of the frigate Helge Ingstad, which will go to scrap after a collision with a tanker."
    We need a supply vessel, after a collision with which the destroyer will survive laughing
    And by the way, who is in the know, 9.3 mln l of fuel is about 7 440 tons of fuel (if we take a density of 0,8). It's a lot? Something does not inspire)
