Dry dock shutter installed at Zvezda shipyard

The dry dock being built at the Zvezda shipbuilding complex in Bolshoy Kamen in Primorye, for building ships, got a waterproof shutter (bootport). This was reported by the press service of the enterprise.


According to the report, the installation of a waterproof shutter 114 meters long and 12 meters high took place at the enterprise last week. The design will separate the dock chamber, the bottom of which is located below the water level, from the water area.

The hull of the batoport is made of shipbuilding high-strength steel, it has a continuous waterproof lining and is divided by decks and bulkheads into air, ballast and open compartments. The shutter includes ballast systems, drainage, ventilation systems, dry dock filling valves, as well as a local fire extinguishing system and fire alarm. The shutter is controlled from the central console or local posts if necessary. To install the shutter, the dock was flooded, and a temporary dam bridge was removed to separate the dock from the water area.


As noted, a feature of the bootport installed on the Star is the presence of a carriageway on the upper deck of the structure, which greatly simplifies the passage of vehicles to the other side of the dry dock.


The dry dock under construction itself is one of the largest structures of this type in the world. Its dimensions are 485 meters long, 114 wide and a depth of 14 meters. A Goliath-type crane with a lifting capacity of 1200 tons was installed on it, and pumping equipment was mounted. The dimensions of the dock allow you to build ships and ships without limiting the tonnage and launch weight of the hulls.

This dry dock is a key element in the second phase of the construction of the Zvezda shipyard. Its commissioning is scheduled for this year.

    Good luck to the latest shipbuilding complex!
    The icebreaker "Russia" will be the first in this dock.
    Water is pumped out and, apparently, an icebreaker will be laid.

      What Russia are you talking about? Aframax class oil tankers to be major orders for 10 years
      Production program SSK "Star" for the period until 2035 totals 178 units of ships and marine equipment of various types. The pilot loading of the complex is provided by Rosneft, which has placed an order for 28 vessels at the shipyard. In particular, Rosneft ordered ten Aframaxes out of 12, Sovcomflot ordered two more.
      The Zvezda product line will include vessels with a displacement of up to 350 thousand tons, elements of offshore platforms, ice-class vessels, commercial vessels for the transportation of goods, special vessels and other types of marine equipment of any complexity, characteristics and purposes, including equipment that previously in Russia it was not produced due to the lack of the necessary launching and hydraulic structures. The pilot loading of the complex is provided by Rosneft, which has entered into an exclusive agreement with DCSS to place all orders for the construction of new marine equipment and vessels at its facilities.
      Aframaks ordered by Rosneft are intended for transportation of oil and oil products. The tanker is 250 meters long and 44 meters wide. Aframax deadweight ranges from 80 to 120 thousand tons.

    A little more time will pass and all the Nikolaev shipyards will be pulled away for scrap, and in the former docks they will breed fish.
    A good thing is being mastered in the Far East, but it’s a shame for Nikolaev. Such a wonderful place (land and city) for creating any fleet was given to a misunderstanding, called "Ukraine".
    I would like to hope that the glorious Nikolaev will be returned to our homeland someday.

      In Ukraine, the dry dock is even 3 meters deeper (17 meters).
      https://ocean-shipyard.com/ru/napravlenyya/sudoremont/
      The depth of the dry dock of the Star is indicated at 14 meters, while the space will take more kilblocks. The maximum that can be lowered from the dock under construction at Zvezda is 8.5 M. And then, for this you need to make dock supports of a lower height. In general, a dry dock on the Star was built for tankers.

        The ships leave the dock unloaded. Add four meters to the count.

        Draft of a fully equipped Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is 11,3 meters. Remove all the stuffing from it, the superstructures that are already mounted outside the dock and 4-5 meters will decrease.

      Well, the Chinese did it, they (well, another company - Jan De Nul Group) were entrusted with dredging work = they delivered everything ahead of time and invested in the budget. Even the world's largest digger (born in 2017) was brought in.




      But this bathoport was brought from China in April.

            It is possible to build with us, here it is necessary to use effectively again, learning, while the methods of teaching / accustoming must be used completely draconian !!! Otherwise, now there is no way. Too many people think that the money allocated for a particular business does not mean that the work must be done on time and with proper quality !!! And some believe that it is not necessary to perform at all?!?!?!

    The dry dock under construction is one of the largest structures of this type in the world. Its dimensions are 485 meters in length
    There are many such docks in the world in China, Japan, South Korea, USA, France. There are docks and at 900 meters - Saint-Nazaire (Chantiers de l'Atlantique). But in Russia they were able to build and quickly. "Down and Out trouble started".
