Eighth Project 12700 minesweeper Lev Chernavin was laid down at Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard

The eighth Project 12700 mine defense ship (code Alexandrite), named Lev Chernavin, was laid down in St. Petersburg. The laying ceremony took place at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard.


As previously reported, the formation of the hull of the new minesweeper began on July 10. In a hermetically mounted matrix, repeating the contours of the hull of the future ship, under the influence of negative pressure, the binder was impregnated with a binder in a special way laid layers of fiberglass. The impregnation process took about two days. The official groundbreaking ceremony was scheduled for 24 July.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Navy for Armaments Igor Mukhametshin, Chief Advisor to the General Director of USC Viktor Chirkov and Chief Designer of Project 12700 minesweepers Alexander Kalinin.

The new ship received the name of Lev Davydovich Chernavin - a Soviet submarine officer, Rear Admiral, who commanded submarine formations of the Northern fleet.

The new minesweeper will be the eighth ship in the line of Project 12700 Alexandrite, laid down at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard and the last one built in the first series. Starting from the ninth, the minesweepers of this project will be built taking into account the changes made to the project during the operation of the first ships. The changes will mainly affect the automation of mine action weapons.

Minesweepers of the 12700 project are able to use the latest hydroacoustic stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and they have an automated mine action control system. Able to use traditional and traditional weapons. The ships of the Alexandrite series have a unique hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion.

The 12700 project was developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau for the Russian Navy. These mine defense ships have a displacement of about 890 tons, the length is 62 meters and the width of 10 meters, the crew has 44 man.

      Why strange? According to your logic, in honor of Admiral Ushakov the sailing ship should have been named, not a destroyer? So what? And in honor of Askold a punt, not an RTO?

      The strange thing is that our admirals have gone of two kinds turns out.
      That is why the frigate is called ADMIRAL GORSHKOV or ADMIRAL KASATONOV, and minesweepers in honor of Rear Admiral Chernavin, for example, or Vice Admiral Shlemov for some reason Name Surname. Why is this so?

        Yes, this figure was announced as the minimum necessary. It is necessary to remember the lessons of the Second World War, in principle, and in particular the Tallinn Passage - when most of the ships and vessels were killed by mines.

    Periodically, the theme comes up that our fleet has serious problems with minesweepers. Who follows this topic, tell me please, the minesweepers of this project are not suitable for all purposes, or are they not of high quality? Or, on the contrary, excellent, but the problem is in small quantities? Or is this project in perspective and solves this problem? Thank you in advance!

    The Baltic is in flight (including due to the departure of the Outskirts) - it will take several years to equalize the situation, increasing the fleet there ... again there will be no 7x70 tons Will you cry over the Baltic aircraft carriers? ha ha.

        There will not be those conditions necessary for normal glue setting. "Dry, clean surface" - where to get it, when even through a properly applied plaster, filtration water flows? Only traditional damage control remedies come to my mind.

      Outside, start a plaster; a padded mat with a sliding stop from the inside; and run to the nearest dock. For cracks in the hull, the cement box helps well, but I doubt the fiberglass and cement will have good adhesion ...

        You are greatly mistaken. Repairing a fiberglass hull is a VERY big problem. Due to the fact that the monolithic structure of the case is violated, due to the fact that the patch cannot be fully integrated into it, you will not completely restore the case. With minor damage, the loss of strength properties will be small, you can accept, and the larger the hole, the greater the loss of strength, and the less sense from the repair.
        This is also the reason for the limited life of the composite body. It is impossible to repair it.
        Another disadvantage is the non-recyclability of the housing materials. In 40 years this minesweeper will represent a hundred tons of environmentally hazardous waste, with which no one now knows what to do.
        Metal cases are quietly, and even with some benefit, sawn for ferrous or nonferrous metal.

          Fiberglass for hulls of boats has been used for a very long time. Starting from two-veselgo Tuzik and to ships of tens of tons. The hole is glued without problems.

              Several times I saw how yachts in a couple of tons were repaired. High-speed. The place of the patch is not even visible. If they come off, then they glued it like this. I think the military vessel will be able to provide proper care and maintenance.

                A couple of tons is a small boat, 6 meters.
                I drove a yacht that year. After several thousand kilometers at full speed, the bow thruster fairing fell off. Not a patch, of course, but also glued to the case. The yacht is new, from the shipyard, everything is certainly done there according to technology.

                  Nobody canceled the marriage. As a resident of the Black Sea coast, I can say for sure. A patch made by half-handed "workers" from cheap materials can be easily worn for several years with intensive exploitation. I think a correctly made patch will be almost forever.

          recycling fiberglass is not a problem, just burial, repair is also quite possible, if you observe the temperature regime and use high-quality material with a sufficiently rough high-quality surface treatment, layer by layer fiberglass, glass mats or fabrics are removed, a ladder is obtained, and it is not glued anyhow, then everything will be durable
