A vessel leaving the port of Nakhodka capable of completing the construction of Nord Stream 2


Last night, the Akademik Chersky crane-assembly-pipe-laying vessel set sail from the port of Nakhodka. It is heading to Singapore, where it should arrive by midnight from February 21 to February 22.


This information appeared on the monitoring resource Vesselfinder.

Last year, Energy Minister Alexander Novak announced that Akademik Chersky was the only vessel capable of completing pipe laying for the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. He said that to start work he needed additional preparation, which would take some time.

The pipe-laying vessel was built in 2015. It is owned by Gazprom and in 2016 entered the operational management of Gazprom Fleet. The length of the "Academician Chersky" is 150 meters, and the width is 37. Its draft is 6,5 meters.

In all likelihood, the ship is heading to the Baltic Sea to begin laying the Nord Stream 2 pipes.

Prior to this, the pipe-laying work was carried out by the Swiss company Allseas, but it had to curtail its activities due to the threat of American sanctions. Sanctions measures against the builders of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline are provided for by the US defense budget, which Donald Trump signed at the end of last year.

        Sergey agrees. It’s not close, but the striped can give a damn about it. There are many ships in Gazprom. They can put an arrest on them, they can just detain them under some Ukrainian lawsuit. Until then they will figure it out until ours are “taken care of,” and time passes.

          You might think that whether this next pipe will be built or not for ordinary Russians gas and utility bills will decreaseU.S. so much some patriots are worried about how the former national heritage is flowing.
          Most likely that communal will increase, because it will be necessary to somehow compensate for the increased construction costs of the next political pipe.

          How do you worry about us, poor little ones !!!!!!! No, we’ll somehow figure out what to build and what to finish.

          Aha. The USSR did not sell gas and did not sell oil. And the forest did not sell. In general, I did not trade with anyone. And the weapon was generally distributed for nothing. They used everything themselves

            Only here the revenues from the sales of all this in the USSR went to the treasury of the state, and not to the personal pockets of individuals. So it is not entirely correct to compare the situation in the USSR and modern Russia. However, this is not only in Russia, but in all the former republics.

        In this regard, I still have one thing that is not clear. If the ship arrived in Singapore, then go a long way? Our Northern Sea Route at this time does not pass even with our capabilities? Or will they only prepare the ship in Singapore?

          In order to pass the Northern Sea Route an ice class vessel is necessary, and now (in winter) it is also with an icebreaker in front.

            Suppose, however, with a high degree of probability that this vessel is not of an ice class, for it was built by order of those who do not need it.
            But we have icebreakers! Again it turned out that it is now in Singapore, where it was built. It is possible for competent preparation about the need for which it was announced. So we’ll also see how it turns out to be in the Baltic.

              This vessel is NOT an ice class. And to build this type of vessel with ice protection is the same as building a bicycle from tank armor. It is impractical. And Singapore is just a place where you will get supplies, fuel, oil and everything necessary for the further transition. . Singapore is geographically favorably located, with a developed supply structure. There, only 600 vessels are laden daily on the internal roads, and there is also an external raid

                Singapore is also the shipyard where this ship was built. And he, as stated in the article, needs additional preparation. That is where the best competencies are for this. Coincidence? We will see.

                  There is no coincidence, the vessel needs re-equipment, but not for SP-2, but for the construction of gas pipelines on Sakhalin and the Amur gas processing plant

          Novel! It is strange to me too. Personally, I am guided on these matters by the blogs of Aslan Nakhrushev, who positions himself immersed in the issue. I am inclined to believe him because of his reports even before the sanctions that look professional. So, the main one. if not the only voiced problem of substitution by the Academician Chersky is the discrepancy between the diameters of the SP2 pipes and the diameters of the gas pipelines in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk that Chersky laid. Then they decided not to distract Akademik from his affairs in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, so as not to disrupt contracts. Therefore, I personally think that the “Academician” is going to Singapore on issues not related to SP2. Too big a risk. You understand what.

          Most likely in Singapore there will be a modernization or retrofitting of the ship. And the Northern Sea Route in February March is a dubious prospect.

        In general, it is not known for what purpose the pipelayer left Nakhodka. Everything is just a rumor. But in any case, the Americans can arrange a trick, and the protection of the box does not hurt.

        Against the background of the contractor’s, this is a dwarf vessel from the last century. There were floating factories in essence. So the gasket will go slower by an order of magnitude.

      Hello Victor soldier
      Everyone expected something like that, or rather this.
      It will come in the spring, when it can work normally.
      The ship, all the same, lower class than Allseas. For those guys on the court, these are “monsters,” factories afloat.

        some gossip that was occupied by another contract in Okhotsk, others half a year ago, it was already in Nakhodka ... of course it was necessary to sniff out earlier.
        identity too - the bunker is available everywhere. in Vanino they always take the bunker when the northern delivery is done. another thing in the winter through the top is very tough. a head-legs in the open and an icebreaker for ice - the gold wiring will turn out to be despite all the laudatory slogans for the Northern Sea Route.
        5 years old ship is new. Before making a decision on paper they fixed with the Danes what kind of modernization with this geo-positioning - the same shipyard does - God forbid, without docking. although 5 years this register is docking .... although Miller has to make sure 10 times, and then again a bunch in the water.

        At the time of January 1, 2020, the vessel is not ready for operation as a pipe layer, since it does not have the necessary welding and installation equipment.

        At the end of December 2019, Gazprom Fleet announced an open tender for the retrofitting of KMTUS with welding and technological equipment. Estimated cost of work - 873,5 million rubles. The tender results were to be announced on January 22, 2020 [12], however, the deadlines for receiving proposals were postponed to January 30, 2020. [13]

    Prior to this, the pipe-laying work was carried out by the Swiss company Allseas, but it had to curtail its activities due to the threat of American sanctions.


    The threat of US sanctions scared the Swiss company. Interestingly, did Gazprom invoice them for the failure of the contract in accordance with the Work Contract? Or was it not provided for in the Treaty, which is unlikely?

    In vain worry. Americans do not need to fuss. Americans know that there are no changes, replacements and so on. Gazprom will not be part of the manager’s team, so no matter how much fuss, these managers will do all the tricks themselves.

    You might think that whether this next pipe will be built or not for ordinary Russians gas and utility bills will decreaseU.S. so much some patriots are worried about how the former national heritage is flowing.
    Most likely that communal will increase, because it will be necessary to somehow compensate for the increased construction costs of the next political pipe.


    There are premature ones who do not understand that the lower the price inside the country, the less of that remains in this country.
    In the USSR, the gas price was 4 kopecks per cubic meter. Hence the almost complete absence of it in cities and towns. A dozen cities such as Moscow and Novosibirsk do not correct the picture. There was also no way to drag the pipe through the taiga to somewhere in Krasnozaborsk in order to make 1000 inhabitants happy. All that could go to countries that respect themselves and pay not 4 copecks, but 4 dollars. What is needed is not a price reduction, but a wage increase. Then, with the equality of prices, what is inside, what is behind the fence, everything will be sold primarily here. And no customs will be needed, with the protection of resources, bribe-takers and bribe-takers who break through any obstacles in export bans will disappear, even by methods of undermining buildings with officials who observe the interests of the motherland. As it was not once. Think of the assassination of a border officer in the Far East. Together with a 12-storey building. And this applies not only to gas, but to everything. They will not barbarously cut down Russian forests, they will not export coal, oil, metals. Everything should remain primarily for their own. But this is, above all, prices equal to the district.

      The reason is completely different. There is Kuzbass with huge reserves (and production) of coal, and all of Siberia in the planned economy of the Union was heated by this coal. It just didn’t make sense to pull the pipes, refusing at the same time the existing production (which then there was no where to put it) and infrastructure.

    It is not a matter of temperature, but of the sea. What a floating fctball stadium could do is hardly a ship. Here, sooner in size, it’s not a pipelayer but something like a large lifeguard in the northern seas. For example, like "Muraman" or "Bering Strait" (google for fun). The larger the vessel, the better its stability + I'm sure that import vessels have more advanced roll compensators. It used to be that ships swayed in the waves, and now they either have gyroscopes or pneumatic pumping fluid from side to side to compensate.

    Did you live in Kuzbass? Can you tell me why there was gas in the 400 thousandth Novokuznetsk, and there wasn’t 360 thousandth in Prokopyevsk? Although there was a huge amount of coal both here and there? There was no gas in the Altai Territory, although there too ..... Do you know what it is like to mine coal, did you compare the risks of working on the surface at the drilling site and below, at a kilometer depth? In a super-category mine with methane emission of more than 25 cubic meters per ton of coal? Do you know about the statistics of the traumatic work in the mine, in any way, not reduced by all efforts during the entire Soviet period, when one human life was given for every million tons, not counting cripples and minor injuries? Do you know how much coal was mined in those days, and can you multiply 600 million per unit to find out how many miners were buried per year? Arithmetic, your mother.

    Judging by the tender, the vessel has not yet been equipped to work as a pipe layer, and perhaps this will be done in the shipyards of Singapore, where it was completed. About the Nord Stream -2, by the way, there is no question, at least officially.

        And there is such an opinion:
        The Russian authorities do not specifically indicate the Baltic Sea as the endpoint for the ship, so that the US leadership could not introduce the Academician Chersky in advance under sanctions, creating problems for using the vessel at the Nord Stream 2 construction sites, a leading expert of the National Energy Security Fund believes Igor Yushkov.

        In Singapore, the ship can complete any modernization. On the one hand, he ["Academician Chersky"] is able to carry out the work that is needed to complete the Nord Stream 2, ”said Yushkov. - On the other hand, the vessel has recently been operating on the Sakhalin shelf and laid pipes of smaller diameter. During the time that he is standing, "Academician Chersky" has already passed a certain readjustment.

    hi
    The laying itself - 163 km is nothing compared to what was done, but lost time is a pity. No wonder the saying is "time is money."

    Time is not lost. Colossal work has been done to split unity on the gas issue. German money suffers mainly, because the lion's share in this project is theirs. The countries that built themselves terminals for liquefied gas were supplied by cancer. Which will become a burden, with further cheaper gas, due to the disadvantage, more and more increasing with lower prices. Germany, which closed all nuclear power plants. going crazy with the pressure of the greens and the people who don’t understand that burning methane is the greenest way to produce electricity. The amount of this most greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is reduced, because it still leaves the underground and underwater pantries, and no natural phenomena contribute to its conservation there.

    I really want to believe that the plan for the transfer of the vessel was not developed alone by the "effective managers of Gazprom" (many of whom will sell their mother for green candy wrappers), but agreed with the competent law enforcement agencies and departments. Otherwise, they will simply arrest him in any foreign port at the request of the United States in connection with the “possible failure to comply with US sanctions against SP-2.” Yes, and a lot of unexplained things can happen along the way. In this case, our country will suffer huge reputation damage, and we can do absolutely nothing, it will be too late. I want to believe that the route is thoroughly thought out.

    There is Poland with their coal reserves. There is Germany .... There is England, which closed all coal mines. And there is the USSR, which burns millions of tons of brown coal in Krasnoyarsk thermal power plants, poisoning the whole of Siberia up to the tundra with sulfur rains, and sending pure purified energy, without color, odor and other things, through wires to the native Sevsk brotherly countries that have crap all our past history.
