Sea minesweeper "Yakov Balyaev" sailed to the Far East by the Northern Sea Route

The new Project 12700 mine defense ship (minesweeper) Yakov Balyaev, performing an inter-fleet passage from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok, successfully crossed the Northern Sea Route. The press service of the Pacific Fleet reports.


The minesweeper left St. Petersburg at the end of July and began the transition to Vladivostok, where sea and state tests of the ship will take place, as a result of which Yakov Balyaev will join the Pacific Ocean fleet and will serve in Kamchatka. It is planned that the ship will arrive in Vladivostok in the first decade of October. Let us clarify that the minesweeper will travel all the way from the Baltic to its destination in tow. The towing is carried out by the sea tug "Antey".

The newest mine defense ship "Yakov Balyaev" of project 12700, which is moving from St. Petersburg to the Pacific Fleet, has completed the passage of the Northern Sea Route and will arrive in Vladivostok in the first decade of October

- said in a statement.

It is noted that the passage of "Yakov Balyaev" along the Northern Sea Route was the first in stories such a transition of a ship with a fiberglass hull.

Earlier, the Northern Sea Route carried out the sea tug of project 23470 "Andrey Stepanov", also intended for the Pacific Fleet.

Marine minesweeper "Yakov Balyaev" is the fourth serial (fifth in a row) ship, which was laid down on the stocks of the plant, however, due to a fire on the first serial minesweeper "Georgy Kurbatov", "Yakov Balyaev" became the fourth mine defense ship in the line of project 12700 "Alexandrite".

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.

    Perhaps this is the main good news of the day today! Interestingly - will it be shown in the all-Russian news?

      I agree that the news is good and promising for Russia ..! And in the news, as always, they talk about the newcomer and other nonsense .. For example, Russia this year threshed 120 million tons of wheat !!!!! Molchek about this .. It also breaks records in meat and dairy production ..
      And the Northern Sea Route is our independence (after all, they can block all transport routes, etc.) .. Note the more successes Russia has, the more they hound us and impose sanctions on us.
      We are restoring the Russian fleet, and the Northern Sea Route is very harsh, both for equipment and for sailors.

        Well, what more news they can. If about grain and meat, then people will start to think about it.

        For example, Russia this year threshed 120 million tons of wheat !!!!!

        So what? Firstly, agricultural production of mass crops is as little value for the state as the extraction of minerals. The economy does not develop, the added value is small, the people work a little, all the profits go into the pockets of certain oligarchs. The agricultural sector, in contrast to the oil sector, is also subsidized from the budget.
        Besides, these 120 megatons, what to do with them? Half of this is not needed for the domestic market. It remains to sell for export. Not everyone can sell, but according to quotas certain exporters. And in order to sell such volumes on world exchanges, one has to significantly dump. This can be done if a trader buys this wheat from the producer at a price well below the market price. After all, the merchant needs to drop the dough into his pocket, and not weak. And what's good about that? Last year the sugar industry suffered in this way. Several sugar factories have closed due to falling prices. This is not talked about in patriotic programs.

        Where is that meat, where is milk? And why were more than a million tons of palm oil imported?

    So the new mine defense ship reached the Pacific Ocean. Seven feet under the keel.

    Not passed, but dragged in tow, I wonder why, probably the power plant is not reliable, otherwise what is this card ballet for?

      There is simply nothing to do with a fiberglass body in the Arctic. Sea tug appropriate for the Arctic at this time of year as a "clearing" class.

      Popped out? With relief you, cotton! No matter how you work out the western pieces of silver here, our SevMorPut works. This is not your way from Odessa to Berdyansk, which for you, Svidomo lads, has become insurmountable, despite the absence of ice.

      It is the tradition of the Russian Navy to accompany all ships with tugs. You never know what, but here is help. Although nominal.

      I also noticed that the tug is in tow, now a minesweeper. Probably the engines are Chinese, not Ukrainian or sanctioned MTU

        He noticed something, but he wasn’t smart enough to analyze. You think that each boat on the NSR will be driven alone, unaccompanied among the ice, for which they are not designed to pass. Chances are you're just trying to dump your droppings here. Buy a car.

          Navigation is over on the NSR, the ice situation does not allow?
          Must be towed?

            Why waste motor resources and fuel on two ships?

      The tests have not yet been completed, but with a plastic case in the Arctic alone, there is nothing to do without an escort

      Because the power plant resource. Look, the Vietnamese submarines from St. Petersburg also did not drive on their own:

      In addition, at the time of the transition, the minesweeper had not yet passed the factory sea trials and State tests.

    in 1984, this was not possible (I personally went to the SA-15 beyond the Arctic), you can see a really powerful warming

    Judging by the photo, this tug somehow does not pull on the sea ...

      They write that the tug was bought in Panama and at first they wanted to drive on their own across the Atlantic. Only the coronavirus interfered.
      The Northern Alliance Company (Leningrad Region) has acquired another tug, and it has become the sixth in the company's fleet. The tug, whose new name is Antey, arrived at the port of St. Petersburg from Latin America, the correspondent of IAA PortNews reports. It will operate in the ports of the Baltic Sea, including inter-port towing.
      The vessel has a capacity of 5 thousand horsepower and can be operated in any water bodies. According to the general director of the Northern Alliance Vyacheslav Lobikov, it was originally planned to ferry the tug from Latin America to St. Petersburg on its own, but due to the pandemic, the Northern Alliance was unable to organize the maintenance of the vessel at the place of purchase and the flight of the crew to Panama, so the tug went to Russia on a cargo ship. After carrying out maintenance at the dock of the Kanonersky Plant (St. Petersburg), the vessel will go on its maiden voyage - it will be towed to the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

    Personal level of seafaring, -MS (small boats). Interests, friends in the real fleet will not count ...
    IMHO: it is quite rational (about towing), - fuel and lubricants, they save motor resources.
    I hope there is (yes, I am convinced) on this board there is an AIP (autonomous power source) - for the life support of the ship and the crew) Probably, even for the main task in special conditions ... As an example, imagine: a leak-type is given, such - the ship (minesweeper) follows from point A to point B for repairs, etc., etc. (even in tow!). restrictions ...)
    Let the graduates of the academies be cunning.
    The ship is seven feet, the crew is good luck, professionalism, stamina, well, and, well-being ...
