The company "Kronstadt" is building a new plant: expansion of production and benefits for the army

61

This will be the new plant


There are a number of enterprises in Russia that produce unmanned aerial vehicles of various classes and types. By the end of the year, it is planned to launch another plant, the products of which will be heavy reconnaissance and strike UAVs. The new production site is being built by the Kronshtadt company in Dubna.

As soon as possible


On April 16, the press service of Kronstadt announced the start of the construction of the new enterprise. The official announcement revealed some details of this project, and in addition, photos from the construction site and a general view of the future plant were published.

The construction of the plant is being carried out in the city of Dubna near Moscow, and such a place was chosen taking into account objective factors. Dubna is a science city with many industrial enterprises from different industries. Probably, the location of the UAV plant will make it possible to establish cooperation with local organizations with the receipt of certain advantages.


While the site looks like this

According to the project, a plant with a total area of ​​45 thousand square meters will be built. Silent and environmentally friendly production has been developed. Attention is paid to the comfort of workplaces and the design of areas between workshops. The new plant will create 1500 jobs. Investments in construction will exceed 4 billion rubles. At the same time, according to calculations, the plant will pay annually approx. RUB 900 million taxes.

Of particular interest are the declared construction timeframes. According to the published photographs, earthworks are currently underway at the site of the future enterprise, preceding the actual construction. In the coming months, all the necessary measures will be carried out, and the launch of production will take place in November.

The press release about the start of construction cites the words of the general director of the company "Kronshtadt" Sergei Bogatikov. He pointed out that the builders are facing very tough deadlines, but at the same time, he expressed his readiness to do "everything possible and impossible" to fulfill them.

Production expansion


The headquarters of the Kronstadt company is located in St. Petersburg. The company's plant operates in Moscow. It has already established a full production cycle of several types of unmanned aerial vehicles. In addition, the Moscow enterprise is engaged in the manufacture of experimental equipment for promising projects. At the end of February, the Moscow plant received a delegation from the Ministry of Defense and the press. Then, both well-known and new developments of interest to the army were shown.


At the same time it was announced that this year "Kronstadt" will build and transfer to the armed forces 6-7 newest unmanned systems "Pacer" with three UAVs "Orion" each. At the same time, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu demanded to increase the pace of production. In response, the company's CEO revealed plans to build a new plant that will be commissioned this year.

Thus, the main task of the new plant in Dubna will be to help the existing Moscow enterprise in the production of unmanned vehicles. Apparently, the existing facilities of "Kronstadt" can no longer cope with all the tasks of experimental and serial production. As a result, the company needs a new site.

The quantitative indicators of the expected growth have not yet been specified. Judging by the orders available, the existing Moscow plant is capable of producing several dozen UAVs annually, including heavy vehicles. A new plant in Dubna may have a similar or higher potential. Thus, one can count on a significant increase in indicators, perhaps even several times.

Current production


The Kronshtadt group works in several directions, and the main ones are the development and production of unmanned aviation complexes, as well as the target load for them. In the field of UAVs, the company is engaged in the most complex projects - heavy-class vehicles with reconnaissance and strike capabilities. In addition, fundamentally new concepts and techniques are being worked out.


At the moment, the main project of "Kronstadt" is the complex "Walker" / "Orion". It was brought to mass production and operation in the troops, incl. with combat use in a real conflict zone. A fairly large order for the assembly and delivery of such equipment to the Russian army is currently being carried out.

Interesting information about the production of "Orions" is given by RIA News with reference to their sources. It is argued that the new plant will cover the needs for such UAVs of both the Russian army and other customers. What structures are mentioned as the latter is not specified, but this information may hint at very interesting processes.

Kronstadt is developing another heavy-class UAV. A mock-up of the promising Sirius product was demonstrated at Army-2020. According to the latest reports, an experimental device of this type will be built and will be released for testing next year. Probably, in the future, the plant in Dubna will master its serial production.


Two more interesting projects have reached the assembly of models. A heavy UAV "Thunder" is being developed, capable of operating independently or in conjunction with manned aircraft. Work is also underway on the Molniya group-use unmanned complex. How soon the design will be completed, whether it will be possible to solve all the tasks, and whether the Ministry of Defense will be interested in such products - it will become known over the next few years.

Thus, the Kronstadt group not only produces already developed samples, but also designs completely new complexes. In just a few years, the range of UAVs produced will expand, and the production capacity must match it.

Army benefits


It should be recalled that Kronstadt is not the only domestic developer and manufacturer of military UAVs. Devices of different classes and types are produced by ENIKS, Zala Aero, etc. It is their products, in quantitative terms, that now form the basis of unmanned army aviation. However, in this case, we are talking only about light or middle class equipment, which does not cover all the needs of the armed forces.


The first domestic project of a heavy reconnaissance and strike UAV was developed and brought to operation by the forces of the Kronstadt company. In the foreseeable future, we should expect the emergence of new complexes of this class. This will completely close the previously empty niche and organize in the troops full-fledged unmanned forces with all the required capabilities and functions.

It is obvious that the quality indicators of such an air fleet directly related to the number of manufactured and operated equipment. The number of UAVs, in turn, directly depends on the financial capabilities of the army and on the production potential. The construction and launch of a new production site at Kronstadt will increase the rate of production of heavy Orions, and then master the assembly of new samples of different types.

The benefits and benefits for the Russian army are obvious. The long-awaited heavy UAVs will appear in the units, and in the required quantities. In addition, there is an opportunity to enter the international market with high chances of obtaining lucrative contracts.

Thus, the development of unmanned aircraft in the Russian army continues and will receive a new impetus in the near future. It is assumed that the new plant will start working in November this year, and to solve this problem it is planned to do everything possible and impossible. Whether it will be possible to meet the deadline will become clear this fall. However, it is not the launch date of the enterprise that is decisive, but the very fact of its existence and production capabilities.

              The Turks did the same (Factory) 7 years ago. And their components are all responsible - Western. OLS and satellite receiver - American. And so I agree. It was possible to do all this at the time of purchase from the Sercher Jews.

                  I'm talking about building a plant. It should have been built yesterday, in parallel. Using the absence or minimum of sanctions on purchased machines and equipment. As a result, now we could already produce UAVs on a large scale.

                    The company could not build a plant without clear orders. They are private traders and know how to count money. A couple of years ago, they immediately said that there will be orders for a new plant.

                      And now they are unlikely to build. For this, there is a state that must look further. For a private trader, in general, it is most profitable to build a plant in the UAE in an offshore location, where you will be given all the connections, credit and tax incentives, and all the components nearby from all over the world. Do it - I don't want to.

          Both the UAC and the Kronstadt group are working for public money and on state contracts for MO. If they cooperated for similar tasks, then public funds would be spent more moderately. The state budget would only benefit from this, but private traders and capitalists have different priorities. Kronshtadt is part of AFK Sistema, owned by billionaire Yevtushenkov.

      what is "war production"? This concept does not exist in nature. There is a concept of "legal entity". A company - a legal entity produces products (even for military purposes), sells them to the Ministry of Defense and makes a profit. He pays tax accordingly.

                I have a slightly different opinion .. I think you will not argue that the growth rates under the socialist structure of the economy have greater potential.

                it is fiction. This system is only good for a self-contained economic system. What the socialist economy was like.

                The military-industrial complex is generally a closed economic system. Profit only from sales abroad. I don’t mind profits from overseas sales! I AM FOR!!! and for taxes "And the socialist economy was good at times and places.

                  I think you will not argue that the growth rates under the socialist structure of the economy have greater potential.

                  hmmm ... surely the socialist economy has shown excellent growth rates. But only at the very beginning, when the social conditions of life and work were sacrificed to industrial growth. And then the main incentives fizzled out, and with them growth. And already in the 80s, we entered the indicators for economic markers 2,5 times lower than those that were in the 50-60s !!! So the socialist system was heading towards a natural crisis.

                  if you look at the entire history of our country, then this problem has stood in all centuries. The ruler (king, leader, general secretary, president) is active and wise - the country is moving forward. No - confusion, disorder, mess. And we hate everyone, either during the reign or after. Regardless of the results of the board. Isn't it strange?

                    Since 1968, the USSR began intensively, contrary to Stalin's precepts, to trade in oil. And resource trade is always beneficial to the buyer and corrupts the Seller.
                    The present is the result of the past .... We are invited to trade resources further, and not develop the good that we had. Instead of revising the concept of development, where development is considered an increase in consumption, to the concept of increasing our own production, we continue to entangle the country with pipes. That is, another fall is inevitable

                      there is one "but" here. There are two ways of development - intensive and extensive. The first is associated with the modernization of production (by improving production, we increase productivity), the second - with its simple expansion (through the construction of new plants, factories, etc.). Economic growth in the 50s was mainly associated with extensive development. Those. the economy developed due to an increase in production - the construction of new plants, factories, an increase in the park of machine tools, etc. But as soon as the reserves for growth were exhausted, the growth ended. Therefore, since the 70s, the economy of the USSR has been steadily declining. There was no intensive growth (productivity growth due to modernization). They tried to compensate for the fall by increasing investments, but this led to the fact that the funds went through the consumer system. Against the backdrop of falling productivity, this led to a massive shortage of everything. These are basically the roots of the social problem. economy. She ate herself

                        From my point of view development is measured by the level of implementation of scientific achievements in production. From this position, Leninskoe "Learning .. learning .. learning ..." is relevant, to make your own better than someone else's !!!

                        yes, everything was possible even with a socialist form of economy. It's just that the planned economy itself set us up. If the planning would take into account such factors as:
                        1. Development through the expansion of production will sooner or later face a shortage of personnel. With the same machine park in the USSR and the USA, 20% of us idle stupidly due to staff shortages.
                        2. The stake on the shaft did not even allow to think about the modernization of production. As a result, the obsolescence of technical means in our country was 1,5 times higher than in the United States. As a result of the obsolescence of funds, productivity fell, they tried to compensate for this drop with what? .... right - by expanding production (see item 1)
                        If these moments were taken into account (and they are not so difficult even for the socialist system), then everything would be much better. And instead of falling, in the 80s, we would have received economic growth similar to Chinese or Thai.

      How soon will the design be completed, will it be possible to solve all the tasks, and whether the Ministry of Defense will be interested in such products - it will become known over the next few years.
      But, there is also an interesting statement from the manufacturer in the article, about taxes to the local budget at the level of: 900 million rubles per year, and with the required investments ?, at whose expense - this will be done if the guys have an investment portfolio of 4 billion here and now for construction, plus finance for commissioning and other costs that are needed to produce a new one ... then you can believe, and if only due to state participation, then again, as in the song: "... everything is ghostly, in this world ..

        the main thing is that: 1) jobs were created, 2) the army received new UAVs ... In fact, the construction of a new plant is a logical decision, because it is not so difficult to hand over 21 UAVs a year, but simultaneously work on 4 more projects and prepare them the production line is already more complicated .. of course, the same Sirius will supplant Orion, but when will it be ..

    A plant for marine engines and units would not hurt, even if (it would be even better) with a foreign design and engineering staff. If we can afford a football player for a few million in the absence of football as such, then for less money we could afford a design bureau in full force from the same Pielstik or MAN, Norwegians or Finns. For the money for Abramovich's yacht, it would be possible, for example, to provide the same fishing fleet of the region with trawlers, etc.

    In general, it's sad, these drones could have riveted for a long time and put pressure on their policy around the world, taking into account our (Soviet) developments in the radio sphere and nearby, it was possible to harness the MiG, otherwise it would bend at such a pace, and without it Su completely degrades, and now it is still fluttering somehow. We are 10-20 years late, if they didn’t steal, but they wisely approached and sold to anyone who needed drones complete with a spyamt, there would be no Syria, Karabakh 2.0 on duty, these round dances with the Turks.
