The oldest Russian dry dock restored in Kronstadt

In Kronstadt, the dry dock, which was being mothballed, was restored at the marine plant. According to the press service of the enterprise, the dock has already accepted the first vessels for service.


Kronstadt dry dock named after Surgin restored after 25 years of conservation. He is able to accept small vessels and ships with little draft: tugs, boats, diesel submarines, as well as civilian vessels of small displacement. Two fire-fighting and one diving boat from the Leningrad Naval Base were the first to be docked in the dry dock.

In 2018, the dock was taken out of conservation and conducted a survey. During 2019, the shipyard specialists repaired the main communications, butt port, and the bottom of the dock. Repair was carried out at the expense of the plant’s own funds.

- said in a statement.

Note that the Sumgin dock is the oldest active dry dock in Russia. It was built in 1830-1846 during the reign of Emperor Nicholas I even before the construction of the Kronstadt Marine (ship) plant. Until 1919 it was called Nikolayevsky, after it was renamed in honor of Mikhail Andreevich Sumgin (1900-1919) - a worker of the Kronstadt ship factory, who died in the struggle for the establishment of Soviet power on October 19, 1919 near the village of Ust-Ruditsa (Lomonosov district).

      Such a dock is a dream for a mosquito fleet.

    1830 g dock 190 years Yes, an achievement. One can only guess about the degree of its mechanization, automation, labor productivity, and other scientific and technological progress.

      Are you offering to destroy the old stuff? The plant restored it at its own expense, which means they saw the commercial sense. The year of construction does not say anything about it, as you put it, "NTRakh"

        Not at all. But if they reported levels of mechanization, etc., it would be cooler.
        Maybe they’ll inform.

      The dock is a trough. It can be equipped with any equipment. The main thing is that he does not let water pass.

        If so, then why is everyone so worn then with them? Dug a little canal, concreted, and order.

          In Kronstadt, you won’t be able to run especially far from the canals.

          Well, in general, yes. All you have to do is find enough space, prepare the foundation to withstand the load from the dock itself, and from a standing vessel. Concreted with dividing into sections by thermal seams, ensure water resistance. To equip the pumping station and crane equipment, the necessary communications (electricity, water, steam, compressed air), to bring roads. So the little things at all.

      Probably, in it only the shell is the same, and I doubt it, but the filling is modern: "repaired the main communications, butoport" this implies electronic equipment

      What kind of automation can be on the dock? Batoport was installed, and then one pump switch "on / off".
      Bathoport is a stupidly iron pontoon with rubber bands along the contour for compaction. There is also nothing to automate.

    And the containers on the deck, painted in a ball color, by chance, not with "Gauges"?

    The Chinese also use the former Russian dry dock in Port Arthur, where the cruiser Varyag was still stationed. This dock is already 120 years old soon.

      In Vladivostok, the Nikolaev dry dock has been in operation since 1897. There are still docking ships and ships.

    Actually, the oldest dock, for that matter, is the Petrovsky Dock - 1752.

      Yes, but unfortunately it is not valid. Now there is a museum. But not so long ago took large ships, until the 1144s

        and our "Sword" in 1975. there (in Petrovsky) I did it. What was there ... anecdote after anecdote, but we are about Surgin's dock. And I was not there.

        So until recently, and this dock was not operational. And if desired, the Petrovsky dock can serve well.
        And the dock itself was closed recently in 2008.

          For me, it’s a mystery why it wasn’t restored to working condition. Why all this fuss with a museum? I don’t think that the restoration needs more funds than the museum, the more they want to make it underwater! Those. to the bottom of the dock lay ships raised from the bottom of the Baltic and lay galleries for the passage of visitors! And fill the dock itself with water. IMHO someone pushed this project, but this venture will not be realized and the dock will be restored as a dock.

    Until 1919 it was called Nikolaev
    Until 1855, it was called the New Dock of Peter the Great, then Nikolaevsky.

    Well done artisans, the dock didn’t seem to be taken off conservation, but judging by the photo, they restored

    Good news. We’ll hope that the Petrovsky Dock will be allowed to work as well, turning it into a museum is a dubious undertaking.

    That's good, small vessels also need to be repaired somewhere.
