Conflict with contractors will not affect delivery deadlines for Ural nuclear-powered icebreaker

14

The Baltic Shipyard has not yet received steam turbines, which will then be installed on the Ural nuclear-powered icebreaker. The steam turbine installation (PTU) was to be delivered by the Kirov Plant.


This is stated in an article prepared by Jana Wojciechowska and published in the newspaper Kommersant.

Ural is the third icebreaker of Project 22220. It was expected that it would be transferred to Rosatom Corporation in 2022.

The Baltic Plant was waiting for the steam turbine plant in October 2019, but has not received it yet. In this regard, the company filed a lawsuit against three contractors that are part of the Kirovsky Zavod Group of Companies. The amount of the claim is 199,96 million rubles. The direct supplier of vocational schools is the Kirov-Energomash plant. The other two enterprises of the Kirovsky Zavod Group of Companies act as their joint guarantors.

Kirovsky Zavod disputed the lawsuit, noting the delay in financing by the customer and the delay in the supply of components for turbines.

At the same time, the management of the Baltic Shipyard assures Rosatom that, despite everything, the deadlines for the delivery of the Ural nuclear-powered icebreaker will not change.

The delay in the delivery of the steam turbine unit for the icebreaker was known back in December last year, which was then announced by Aleksey Kadilov, Director General of the plant.

    “The Baltic Plant was waiting for the steam turbine plant back in October 2022, but has not received it yet,” so the conflict has not come yet.

        Most likely a typo, but if this will work in the future, then what kind of modernization can be said.

        There was a typo, corrected.

      Everything is complicated there in general:

      The turbines were to be tested by the Ukrainian Kharkov Turbine Plantbut after 2014 the stand had to be built at KEM. The customer also demanded that the contractor pay a fine in the amount of 160 million rubles to the head “Arctic”, KEM challenged the decision of the court of first instance on appeal, but to no avail. The Kirov Plant, in turn, demanded to amend the contracts with the Baltic Plant and relieve it of liability for violation of the delivery time by winning in courts in three instances.

      At the Baltic factory, the installation was waiting in October 2019. But contractor notes that did not receive timely financing from the customer, as well as turbine componentsTherefore, it will dispute a lawsuit filed earlier by the Baltic Shipyard for 200 million rubles. Despite the delay in installation, the plant assures that it will not affect the delivery dates of the Urals, unlike the Arctic icebreaker.

      At the Kirov plant it was reported that agreed on the delivery time of vocational schools to the Ural in June 2020. The customer and the contractor did not comment on the new delivery dates yesterday..

        That is, the Customer requested 160 million from the Contractor for what the Kharkovites had to do? Well, I didn’t pay on time, of course. What a familiar picture ... including the price of a steam-powered installation of a nuclear icebreaker. Very, very interesting amount. Less than 200 million rubles ?! For the icebreaker’s energy machine ?! Awesome ...

    As always, someone didn’t share with someone and there are no perpetrators.
    And most importantly, there is no one to punch the table with his fist and make him do it right.

    It’s strange with dates
    The Baltic Plant was waiting for the steam turbine plant in October 2022, but has not received it yet.

    But apparently just a typo and the deadlines already ... come out.
    And now the question is how is the load capacity of the Baltic Plant normalized if the facility under construction does not receive the most important components on time, and this does not affect the completion time of the facility? Or have they never planned to hand over the Ural nuclear-powered icebreaker at the Baltic Shipyard? Then really it makes no difference whether vocational schools or not ... request

    Absurd. There are no major turbines, and this will not affect the timing. Who is this blizzard designed for?
    The construction time of all icebreakers of this project due to turbines has been shifted for years.

    If this factor “does not affect the deadlines”, then there is a more weighty reason to postpone the deadline .. they just are not in a hurry to voice it ..

      There is an analogy with the housing-house RENT. But the keys to the apartment were not issued. Ie the house was not accepted for use.

      For a long time I have not heard about the commissioning of the most powerful nuclear icebreaker in the world "Arctic",

      In his tests, one GED burned out. So if GED is put on it from the Urals, then this is a more serious reason for the postponement of time.

    I’m at a loss! Turbines, what from the other end of the world? Within the boundaries of one city! The Chinese would have done faster if not for “import substitution”!
