On the completion of the repair of the Admiral Kuznetsov Tavkr: why the deadlines are being delayed

79

Repair of the only Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov is being delayed. This is due to certain reasons, among which technical difficulties are not the least.


Back in early April 2020, it became known that the repair of an aircraft carrier would not last until the summer, but until the end of 2022. This was reported to the press by the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov. The approximate figures of the damage that the ship suffered as a result of the fire also became known.

Problems and Amounts


It is at least about 500 million rubles. At the same time, the head of USC said that such money, despite its unconditional impressiveness, is much lower than the total cost of an aircraft carrier, so the question of the existence of a ship is not worth it. It will be repaired, it may be necessary to pay extra somewhere, they can save some money, and at the same time they will carry out certain modernization works.

Recall that the fire on the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov occurred in December 2019. Even then, the ship was under repair in Murmansk. According to some reports, safety violations during welding work could lead to a fire. As a result of these violations, fire covered 500 square meters. m. area. After eliminating the fire and assessing the damage, it turned out that he had damaged electrical cables laid along the side of the ship. However, even so, these cables were subject to replacement.



If we talk about time costs, the time to repair the damage, the representatives of the USC were estimated at about 8 months. However, why then did it come to the extension of repair work right up to the end of 2022? Moreover, we all perfectly understand: usually the most optimistic forecasts are officially voiced, so if they talk about the end of 2022, it is possible that the repair work may be delayed for some more time. Indeed, the economic situation in the country is not very good, and the pandemic is making adjustments to the work of entire sectors of the economy.

Repair of Admiral Kuznetsov should be carried out at the 35th shipyard in Murmansk, however, repair work is still ongoing here not on the ship itself, but on the dock, where the ship should be repaired. In addition, there were problems with the contractor company, which carries out these same repairs in the Murmansk dock.

The United Shipbuilding Corporation a year ago, in July 2019, signed a contract for 20 billion rubles with the company “Investments. Engineering Building". The contractor was supposed to complete the dock repair in 2020, while repair work was also ongoing on the ship. Then there was a fire.

As a result, the United Shipbuilding Corporation has claims against the contractor. After all, then the deadline for repairing the dock moved to 2021, respectively, and it was possible to repair the ship no earlier than in 2022. Now, given that the repair work on two docks at the 35th shipyard is seriously delayed, the question arises of the possibility completion of repair work at Admiral Kuznetsov, even by the announced date - by the end of 2022.

But what if the project for repairing the docks of the 35th plant was ready even before the fire at Admiral Kuznetsov. The length of the north dock is 187 m, the south - 236 m. The project proposed dismantling the wall between the docks and lengthening the north dock. The result would be a room of 236 × 63 m. This area is sufficient for docking large ships, such as cruisers, destroyers, nuclear submarines. But for the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, a length of 305 meters is required, and if we talk about the stock, then 335 meters.

It is believed that repair work on the ship will be completed at best by 2023. At worst, repairs can last for many years. And then the only Russian aircraft carrier fleet will be able to get into operation only in the mid-2020s. And the reasons for this state of affairs are the lack of coordination of actions even in such a serious, strategically important area as the shipbuilding industry. All these issues could be solved much more quickly if there was greater centralization and tighter control over the solution of the tasks. After all, they were in the not-so-so-old domestic stories examples where in a few years it wasn’t that the ships were reanimated after the fire, and entire cities were restored after incredible destruction ...

    It would be interesting to know how much the construction of such a ship could cost ... And it is also interesting how much money was spent on these endless repairs ...

        Surprisingly, it came to the point that they could not make out the wall between the docks and lengthen them. Well, trifling matter, standard construction work. The Chinese would have built it ten times already. But they could not cope with this either. In other areas, in such cases, they usually refer to a problem with imports, etc. But this does not work here. And the problem is clear to every sane person - this is the existing rotten system, which is controlled by the country. Take even this particular object. Why did the contractor fail? Didn’t want to? Sabotage? Of course not. Just to win this tender, he made a commitment to return not a small part of the amount of the contract to the official who decided who would get the contract. This is called a rollback. The average rollback amount is 25% of the estimate. Add to this the costs in the process of work on kickbacks to any testers, technical supervision, etc. In total, costs not directly related to construction reach tremendous value. The contractor cannot stretch them despite the minimum payments to workers, the use of cheap materials, etc. As a result, failure to meet deadlines, filing a lawsuit against him, a new tender, and still again in a new circle. During this time, officials manage to build palaces for themselves with this corrupt money and buy hotels abroad. And so in all areas where construction is carried out at the expense of budget money. In general, a paradise for those who sit in this system.

          There the problem is actually not in the "docks", but in expediency.
          And the last rehearsals only added crap.
          Years of operation in the north have made themselves felt, as well as poor quality service and use.

        I got the impression that the article is somehow justifiable. Here, they say, one reason, here is another, here is a third.
        And in general, doesn’t it seem to you that too often in our shipyards fires occur during welding, which occurred due to non-compliance with the rules?
        This is very similar to the standard excuse. How long has it been a long time since a fire broke out at the Kerch shipbuilding complex during repairs, which led to the decommissioning of the ship? The nuclear submarines burn regularly. And everything is attributed to rule violations. And when will the conclusions be drawn, and when will the measures be taken?
        And on dry dock, so it's generally a song. The Chinese, Koreans, Japanese in this situation have long been not something that would have built it, but already 27.3 times would have forgotten about it.
        The only consolation is that we have the best ministers in the world. crying

        -The topic will continue- The goal is to create a financial industry group, like raw-material exporters.

        And the reasons for this state of affairs are the lack of coordination of actions even in such a serious, strategically important area as the shipbuilding industry. All these issues could be solved much more quickly if there was greater centralization and tighter control over the solution of the assigned tasks.

        - chush as one famous leader said. The struggle of the Kremlin towers is moving from under the carpet to "who can hang a lot of assets in grams" - the advanced countries have a certain economic structure and raw materials are part of it, headed by the financial group (with the centers of the banks).

      I always said that it’s high time to write off Kuzyu, a stupid waste of money and effort. 5 years will be repaired and as a result will receive a morally obsolete nedavik, without escort ships (for a full-fledged AUG), with a half-winged wing on board, without experienced pilots.

        He is now thirty years old, if it is released in 2025, it will be 35, it will not make any sense to really upgrade and completely repair it.
        There is still a problem with the wing
        If there will be no orders from abroad, the design and creation of a couple of dozen aircraft for one ship will fly a pretty penny

      More or less serious repair of a similar ship for India took 10 years and cost $ 2,3 billion.
      What they are doing now is not a full-fledged repair, it's just maintaining the ability to at least somehow stay afloat and have a move

      That's for sure. Sometimes it’s cheaper to build a new ship than to constantly spend on repairs. But it is clear to someone it is beneficial to engage in constant repair.

          Why a failure? Remember, it was never built as a full-fledged AB. It was an evolutionary strike of the Soviet aircraft-carrying ships of the ocean zone, and if it were not for Gad Humpback, who broke the country, we would have already had full-fledged, at least atomic AB with normal catapults and aircraft. And Brezhnev was a TAVKR. We began to deal with it, converting it into a light aircraft carrier Kuznetsov only after 1991. It is clear that he is in trouble. But our fleet needs it for another 20 years. Though as a stand for testing new aviation technologies and weapons. Only it should be transferred to the Black Sea Fleet, here there is a THREAD and the weather is warmer. In addition, if you still aim to bring it to a "combat" state, you need to give up a lot. And since "a fleet without wings is a dead man." It is necessary to make an air defense aircraft carrier out of it. Just don’t, and all at once, to modernize, it can drag on for another 10 years ... There should be a program of annual step-by-step Fashion. Type M-1, M-2, M-3. Moscow was also not built immediately. First, of course, the power plant, so that it gives 20 knots. A regiment of 24 MiG-29Ks, as it were. The AB will not be able to carry out strike missions, so the Su-33s are pointless there, since they will not take off the Onyx anti-ship missiles from such a deck, but they will be able to carry the cast iron and Migi. But the MiG-29K with four explosive missiles takes off even at 10 knots of Kuznetsov's course. Thus, we get an air defense umbrella with a radius of up to 1000 km. And let him go to the BS for 3-6 months every year, even in this composition. After all, the escort is already there! As an option: cruiser Project 1164, or 1144, frigate Project 22350, BOD Project 1155, corvettes Project 20380. And after BS again, M-X, add something to remove.

When XNUMX more are brought in, everything taken together allows you to completely repair the entire power plant of the cruiser, dilute the steam, try and take the auxiliary mechanisms, it can also turn the turbines, they are also disconnected from the shaft lines that are pulled out and stand on the stubs. Then to the dry dock of the XNUMXth shipyard (when they finish building).

      New boilers from the first four. Old boilers ran out of life. They should be replaced by new high-pressure steam boilers KVG-4 of Russian production. The units were manufactured and delivered to the 35th shipyard in the spring and summer of 2018. The resource of eight KVG-4 boilers will be 25 years. KVG-4 was developed at least 30 years ago and to a certain degree is an anachronism, but it will be necessary to establish them, since small-scale (in the amount of 8 units) production of a fundamentally new boiler will not be justified.

    There is no practical reason to repair Kuznetsov except for the prestige of the state. Italy has Cavour and Garibaldi, the Spaniards Juan Carlos, the United Kingdom Elizabeth and Wales, and we are not talking about the US Navy, and the Russian Federation should be. Although in my opinion it’s already enough to torment this already elderly ship and it is necessary to lay down a new one or better to postpone this idea altogether until better times, given the situation in the country's economy.

    And aircraft carriers, why do we need them? Are you planning to fight in Africa? What did you forget there? I have nothing to do there. To protect our land, aircraft carriers are not needed. In World War II, we did not have a single one, but we won. Someone wants itch, show off limonti ?. Well, at his own expense, in front of and with the song.

        Or is it better to be friends than to fight? In World War II, we regained vast territories, and without aircraft carriers. And which countries began to possess such lands as we, possessing aircraft carriers.?

      But in fact I agree, I also always said that. Russia does not work as a "world gendarme", and we do not need to "project power in different parts of the world." Let the striped be spent on it. We really need the UDC.

        Timboley aircraft carriers will soon die out, as once battleships. Hypersonic PCRs will supplant them; it is only a matter of time.

    why then it is ... about the extension of repair work

    The principle of action of officials at all levels of all sectors - did not steal anything in a day - the day will be spent in vain. Therefore, the longer the construction or repair - the more you can cut off the budget for your own needs. Everything else insofar as. After all, there is no demand for the failure of the task and the deadlines.

    iouris (iouris), dear, maybe Russian footballers should have had their salaries cut for a long time and not have awarded them state awards for a "brilliant" game at the 2018 World Cup? Long ago there would have been enough money to build a closed dock in the Murmansk region, it would have been the first, indeed, that has no analogue in the world ...

    As a combat unit, this ship is not capable of anything, it is time to end the era of the "Forge of Heroes", and focus money and efforts on other projects. "Kuzyu" needs to be slightly patched up and used only for training purposes, as a platform for practicing takeoffs and landings.

    Damn people! This is an aircraft carrier, they are all repaired for a long time and expensive. Just because they are big. The only question is whether it is needed or not, and if it is needed, then it must be repaired, albeit expensive. For me - since there is, then it is necessary to repair, so that it does not work out as with hospitals during the coronavirus epidemic: at first they "optimized", and now at a frantic pace they are trying to build something from pre-fabricated structures and attract medical students. Because the situation "there is an aircraft carrier, but inferior" and "there is no aircraft carrier at all" are two very different situations, and not so much for us as for "partners".

      Everyone is being repaired, but in our country it’s just ruined. Two disasters, one by one. And inferior he will help us in case of something or just be a mass grave for the crew? And if only to demonstrate the flag, then this is just a shame.

        It will help (even without flying from the deck): it can transfer combat-ready aircraft and supplies for it (it will operate from normal airfields), it can be a mobile air defense complex (which was in Syria), but the main thing is that NATO admirals will have to constantly resolve the issue. " what if they include Kuznetsov in the KUG "and seek resources for this business or cancel the planned operation.

          They won’t seek for a long time, and if it comes to the matter, they will easily exchange any of their destroyers (our aircraft carrier will not be mastered, I think) for Kuznetsov. The king has a lot. And we have one and we can say a little old.

    More or less serious repair of a similar ship for India took 10 years and cost $ 2,3 billion.
    What they are doing now is not a full-fledged repair, it's just maintaining the ability to at least somehow stay afloat and have a move
    hi


    What they are doing now is called: throwing it inside the dump and putting in a new one. Control systems, all electrics, all cables are changed, propellers, weapons, radars, navigation, power plant boilers will be thrown out and put in others (and there is no reason to repair it without completely replacing the boilers).
