The information about the completion of the loading process on the frigate "Admiral Golovko" of project 22350 of the domestic gas turbine power plant was confirmed. We are talking about work at the Severnaya Verf enterprise. The channel of the shipbuilding enterprise provided information that, in addition to the first gas turbine engines, gearboxes manufactured by the Russian Federation were loaded into the hold of the aft compartment of the frigate.

The main gas turbine power plant M90FR was created by the specialists of UEC-Saturn. Additional work had to be done to load it onto the ship. In particular, three decks were dismantled in the slipway shop. A special floating crane was used to load the gearboxes. The fact is that the gearboxes are much heavier than the turbines, so the lifting capacity of conventional cranes installed on the factory embankment is not enough for them.

Work has begun on the so-called alignment and installation of the gas turbine engine. This work, as noted, is designed for several months.

The installation of a Russian gas turbine power plant on the third frigate of Project 22350 is an important event. The fact is that the first frigates of this series (and these are "Admiral Gorshkov" and "Admiral Kasatonov") run on gas turbine engines of Ukrainian production. At one time, their deliveries to Russia were carried out by the Zorya-Mashproekt company. Now import substitution has been carried out.

M90FR engines from "Saturn" are afterburners. The cruise power plants are Kolomna 10D46 - diesel engines.

    What does "so-called" mean ?! On tanks, this kind of work requires a certain amount of effort, but here they are much more powerful and heavy units!

    Additional work had to be done to load it onto the ship. In particular, three decks were dismantled in the slipway shop.

    Just thinking out loud: since the loading of the units was expected, was it not logical to leave this place unassembled and covered? Or does the strength of the case drop dramatically?

      As a rule, schematic sheets are made in the decks for the installation (dismantling) of the main engine and the holes are not cut out, but several hundred nuts are unscrewed. We did this on the ship on our own, unscrewed and removed the sheets to replace the main engine, the work took a day, twisted everyone who got the key.

        On this, and many more projects, it is precisely cut out, the rigidity of the hull is higher, on Kuza, in general, five decks were cut out in order to replace the boilers))

      Greetings!
      Just thinking out loud: since the loading of the units was expected, was it not logical to leave this place unassembled and covered? Or does the strength of the case drop dramatically?


      It was impossible to leave it open, it was launched, so as not to waste time and continued work afloat on the installation of equipment (some of the work is done only after launching). This significantly accelerated the overall progress of the work.

      Just good fellows that they dared to do so.

      In general, according to the technology, it is impossible to mount a power plant afloat, since in addition to the main engines, it includes shaft lines and propellers, which are mounted after the DGTA. Let's go for tricks. When building the head. No. 923, a non-standard technological scheme was applied - propeller shafts were brought to it, propellers were installed and launched. DGTA will be mounted on order at the outfitting embankment and the shafting will be centered (the final alignment according to the rules should be done afloat).

              Even the construction of corvettes and frigates was called by many as irrepressible fantasies. Are you talking about a cruiser ...

              cruisers are not built because it is inefficient. If we compare a destroyer and a cruiser, then the cruiser is 1) large - you can shove a lot of missiles. 2) expensive in construction; 3) expensive to maintain. 4) build for a long time.
              a destroyer, or better a frigate 1) less - we'll shove fewer missiles 2) cheaper to build 3) cheaper to maintain 4) build quickly.
              Well, it turns out that in modern missile combat, while one cruiser is firing off its missiles, 3-4 frigates of commensurate cost will have time to send a missile salvo of higher density. When 1-2 missiles hit the cruiser, it will be incapacitated / combatted with a high chance. A missile hit on a frigate will also put it out of action, but the rest of the frigates continue to fight.
              Plus, in peacetime, when you send a cruiser for repair, your fleet's combat readiness significantly sags. When the frigate is sent for repair, the potential does not sink so much. Likewise, the loss of a cruiser is very significant, in contrast to the loss of a frigate.

      Well, there are no engines. Can the electrical assembly shop walk? You don't need to saturate the compartments and combat posts?

      This is a normal practice, when some key and voluminous components fly away into the unknown, and the task is to work on the order and minimize the completion time after receiving the necessary components.

      Usually, either temporary structures or capital structures are initially installed, but not along the full profile or with a basic calculation for removal. Also, if for installation it will be necessary to open something (which is not provided for by the project), then this can be entered through the KB into the CD / RD. For example, a number of switch boxes or valves, so that during installation and dismantling, only the interfering section of communications and systems can be removed.

      I am a "specialist" in this area, just like you. I have never even been on a warship - a "television expert". However, I think that those who design the ships have come up with something so that when replacing the engine, the entire upper deck does not have to be cut off.

      No, it's not okay. And there everything is noticeably more fun. From the very beginning, the messages about the propulsion system for him were very contradictory and confusing, and now the theories have been fully confirmed by this message - he was launched without an installed power plant, and now they will install and center it afloat, this is not usual. there were still speculations that apparently they had already ditched something trying to set afloat. (otherwise, according to reports, it turns out that the units for installation have already been delivered to him 2 times)

        You yourself answered))))
        These three carved decks provided the hull with the necessary torsional and shear stiffness.
        If you leave the "holes" for mounting for a long time, then the ship's hull can "lead" and it will lose the required rigidity.
        True, all this can be calculated even at the design stage, but it will be more expensive.

        The entire hull is assembled from sheets and welded, they used to be riveted, the icebreaker Krasin is in St. Petersburg, so its hull is riveted, and the ship is more than 100 years old)))
        When designing, places are always meant for technological cutouts for replacing the power plant, either in the board, decks, or pipes of the water intake (exhaust), the cables are taken to the side, some of the systems are removed and have quick-disconnect connections in this place)))
