The minesweeper "Yakov Balyaev" that passed the Northern Sea Route for the Pacific Fleet arrived in Vladivostok

The Pacific Fleet will be replenished with a new Project 12700 minesweeper by the end of the year. According to the Pacific Fleet's press service, the Yakov Balyaev mine-sweeping ship, which passed the Northern Sea Route, arrived in Vladivostok to undergo factory and state tests.


The newest minesweeper Yakov Balyaev, after crossing the Northern Sea Route and entering Kamchatka, arrived in Vladivostok. The minesweeper was escorted to the capital of Primorsky Krai by the sea tug Antey. On the way from St. Petersburg, the ship and the tug passed about 14 thousand nautical miles

- 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.

Upon arrival in Vladivostok, the minesweeper was delivered to the pier of the outfitting base of the Amur shipyard in the Golden Horn Bay. After passing sea and state tests, the ship will become part of the Pacific Fleet and will serve in Kamchatka.

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". Laid down on December 26, 2017, launched on January 29, 2020. Named in honor of the Hero of the Soviet Union, sailor, light machine gunner of the 355th separate battalion of the Pacific Marine Corps fleet Yakov Illarionovich Balyaev.

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 minesweeper is wonderful. But it is even more remarkable that such ships pass the NSR "at once" ... Practically our inner path. Besides the Bering Strait. Need to strengthen the defenses of this place? And then the shifts will definitely try to screw something up ...

        The ship has not yet been accepted into the Navy. He is not a drone, he is now preparing to move the crew. Explain further?

          But what do you want to explain to us, that in Kamchatka there is nowhere to repair a boat - SRV does not repair such a thing, MILL and MECHZAVOD, even more so .... THE MINER will not take it either ..... So everyone knows this .... But Whether the boat from Vladik will reach Kamchatka on its own is a question ..... They will pull the nostril again, well if not a fishing vessel ..... hi

      Back in 1932, the Northern Sea Route was first completed in one navigation - this was done under the direction of Otto Yulievich Schmidt on the icebreaking steamer "Alexander Sibiryakov". hi

      So it has not yet been accepted, a tug is required
      At certain times of the year without an icebreaker, the rest with icebreakers. But with such a hull, the minesweeper really won't pass through the ice, and it shouldn't))

    So at the Pacific Fleet they began to update the PMO. There is still a lot of work to do.
