The volume of loading of Sevmash for the construction of nuclear submarines was called comparable to the Soviet period

The volume of loading of Sevmash for the construction of nuclear submarines was called comparable to the Soviet period

Over the past 10 years, the Northern Machine-Building Enterprise (Sevmash) has transferred to the Naval fleet 9 nuclear submarines, the enterprise's workload is quite comparable to the Soviet period. Mikhail Budnichenko, General Director of the enterprise, spoke about this.

To date, Sevmash is building a series of Borey-A nuclear submarine missile carriers and Yasen-M project multi-purpose nuclear submarines for the Navy, and is also modernizing a project 11442M ship. Last year, the enterprise handed over to the fleet three nuclear submarines at once: two Yasenya-M and one Borei-A. We are talking about the nuclear submarine "Kazan" and "Novosibirsk" and APRKSN "Prince Oleg". This year, the fleet received the Project 09852 Belgorod Poseidons launch vehicle, the Generalissimo Suvorov submarine missile carrier and the Krasnoyarsk multi-purpose nuclear submarine are preparing for transfer. Over the past 10 years, the company has handed over to the customer 9 nuclear submarines, such production volumes were in the Soviet Union.

The enterprise has a serious shipbuilding program. The download volume is quite comparable with the Soviet period. The tasks are huge, however, they are on the shoulder of the team, in whose professionalism I am sure

- leads TASS words Budnichenko.

Sevmash is a Russian machine-building enterprise of the military-industrial complex of Russia, located in the city of Severodvinsk. Production was launched in 1939, on December 21 the battleship S-102 "Sovetskaya Belorussia" was laid down according to project 23. The press service of Sevmash reported that during its existence the enterprise built and transferred 137 nuclear submarines to the fleets of the USSR and Russia various projects, 40 diesel-electric submarines and 45 surface ships. In addition, the company also produces civilian products, including for oil and gas companies.

    Due to the high workload of the enterprise, there is a problem of a shortage of highly qualified hull welders, even with a very good salary, it is difficult to train specialists of this level under the high requirements of the State Inspection Committee.

        I saw a picture from an American shipyard, they assemble the submarine hull - manual welding. The robot is justified in welding relatively small, mass parts, for example, car body parts.

          Perhaps due to the fact that the existing models are stationary, while the submarine is large. We need to improve.

            The movement of the welding manipulator is programmed by coordinates. The body is huge, move the manipulator and reprogram, how do you imagine it? And the welding seam is specific there. I am not a welding specialist, but I think that it should be well warmed up.

Or do you think that there are no unnecessary comrades in working professions? Let's not discuss, Sergey. All Employees are needed, not fictitious positions (working professions) for show. In any staffing of enterprises, organizations, institutions there are inefficient (unnecessary) staff units. And it's not about education (profession). Don't generalize!

        Even if now they have increased vigilance and protection of such an important object !!! Sabotage groups can also visit there, as in other matters, sea / air drones ...
        Yesterday there was information about the Pskov explosions at a helicopter repair base - today a video came from Saloreikha showing the work of a sabotage group at this facility ... and 600 km from the border with Saloreikha !!! To inform the heads of all enterprises, especially the military-industrial complex, that sabotage is possible even beyond the Urals and in the Far East, energy, military-industrial complex, transport facilities can be subject to terrorist attack - be vigilant, strengthen security, increase the measure of responsibility! Is it really necessary to explain this on the pages of mass communications? (I proceed from the video about the explosion of helicopters - they went in, planted explosives in helicopters, filming everything on video, without hiding !!!! - full out !!! Shock from our laxity in the army !!!)

          So far, the best indicators in the economy and in military power have been shown by the rulers of the "cook". One failed high school student, the other failed clergyman. Both are essentially uneducated. The leader must first of all be a good organizer with high authority and be honest. Everything else can be done by his deputies and research institutes. For fools of the level of cooks, this saying was just invented. To show at least in words their importance. It used to be said under kings that God's anointed one could only sit on the throne. Now that only a person with 2-5 purchased higher education and with a Ph.D. Also bought

            Let me explain. I know firsthand and see how "hard workers" work. There is no need to drag Sevmash and other high-level enterprises here by the ears. There are also a lot of questions. How about building a famous spaceport? So. One "hard worker" works, and five "hard workers" dance around him. So who is there to raise the salary? A lot of things are artificially created. Including workplaces. And I am the only lawyer at the enterprise and there is no one around me to lead round dances. I alone pull all the legal support of the enterprise. And enough to generalize all the lawyers and economists. There are also "elite hard workers" who get high salaries for nothing.

      Under Soviet rule, nuclear submarines were built at 5 shipyards. All 5 went to Russia during the collapse of the USSR. Now, after 30 years of "reforms" and "getting up off your knees", Russia has only one left ... It is better to build yachts over the hill ...

              Come on? This is complete nonsense and an excuse for betrayal, these boats are unique to the conditions of the North and the Americans feared these boats the most. It would be possible to carry out their modernization under the Bulava along with a medium repair, and they could freely serve until the 2040s, and all Boreas under construction could be sent to the Pacific Fleet. It would be much more efficient for the state.

    Over the past 10 years, the company has handed over to the customer 9 nuclear submarines, such production volumes were in the Soviet Union.
    They frankly lie. For in the first two years, out of these 10, 4 submarines were transferred - 3 Boreas and 1 Ash, which had been under construction for more than 10 years before. That is, it was also possible to "overtake" the Soviet Union - like 2 were transferred in 4 years!

    Sevmash is one of the rarest enterprises that resisted the devastation for a long time and stubbornly. According to the information that reached me, they managed to maintain the Soviet way of life even in the early XNUMXs, which was very difficult in the face of the uncertainty of flawed Russian capitalism. Somehow they got out in the conditions of the collapse of internal cooperation. Somehow they switched to the outside. Now new tests in connection with the blockade (officially - sanctions). Good luck northerners! Not much, but hang on!

    Budnichenko achieved his goal, at the Board of Directors of Sevmash, which took place in St. Petersburg, he was reappointed director for another 5 years. For joy, why not blurt out! And the representative of the second oldest profession, although he works at TASS, without checking, squeezed the words into the message. It is very similar to the truth, but there are nuances ...
    As they say in Odessa - for the sake of interest, a journalist WOULD climb into the great and terrible Wikipedia, open an article about SEVMASH .. I WOULD take 1957 as an example: diesel-electric submarines pr. after 611 years in 10: nuclear submarine project 627 - 1; project 5 - 1962; pr. 627 - 2. If we compare with the worst year of 658 - yes, 3 nuclear submarines of pr. But how they mastered the "Azuhi" - in 675 they handed over 1 of them ...
    Shifts to the right at Sevmash - constantly and at Budnichenko. Much does not depend on him, because. Sevmash - collects everything from all over the Russian Federation and its environs. The plant did not send the device from Siberia, it was not delivered on time in the compartment - the order to the sea does not go for testing on time.
    There is no need to make a saint from Budnichenko. The whole city knows how he got involved in the construction of a cottage near the cooling pond of CHPP No. 2 in Severodvinsk in the "village" "Northern Crimea". And as his closest friend, the former head of the FSB Directorate for. Severodvinsk, then squeezed out business from the company that built houses in the "Northern Crimea" - the whole city knows the same. The journalists walked around the construction site with television cameras turned on - the city saw on the city's STV channel how the guards behaved and told on camera who and why they installed them, what orders they received from the director of the private security company, how the guards prevented the builders from taking away equipment and materials. The Internet remembers everything...
    What Budnichenko can and should be praised for is the fact that he kicked the personnel officers out of the "Red House" and they went to various universities and colleges of the Russian Federation. Many students from different cities of the Russian Federation come to practice, get acquainted with the city and the plant and come, some of them to work permanently ... They attached a wing to the factory museum. Organized excursions for children from cadet schools from different cities of Russia. The burning eyes of the boys on the pier, and in the SEVMASH museum you must see! Under Budnichenko, a research and production company began to work. Former graduates of former vocational school No. 1 (workers for Sevmash), vocational school No. 28 (workers for Zvezdochka), TU No. 3 (workers for Arktika) do not go to the border to serve or for it - they serve in Severodvinsk. By this, the shortcomings of the workers could at least slightly stabilize the failure. Budnichenko organized, we can already say in the system, housing construction and a system of preferential mortgages. This really works. About target students in the same St. Petersburg "Voenmekh" - nothing new has been invented here since the times of the USSR at Sevmash.
    And since the times of the USSR, SEVMASH has almost lost the production of furniture, completely lost the production of dishes, collapsible garages and crystal. But a large order for the foundation for an ice-resistant platform for the Kamennomysskoye-Sea field, together with the Zvyozdochka, was done with high quality and on time.

    bukhach (oleg), dear, here, like any medal, there are 2 sides. The very stringent requirements of the FMBA of the Russian Federation for the health of an employee inside an order cut off many applicants at the stage of passing a medical examination. Plus, those who have worked for 10-20 years and their health is no longer very good could be transferred from the compartment from the reactor to the assembly of the same garages. Furniture is also an opportunity to load a woodworking specialist with work. In Soviet times, a young distribution specialist came to work with iron, his or her half, can work with wood - and the whole family will work at Sevmash. Ship furniture that does not burn in fire and almost does not sink in water, both Sevmash and Zvezdochka make, even Zvezda of the RF Ministry of Defense filmed .... Today Severodvinsk supports the economy of the Republic of Belarus - the furniture store "Pinskdrev", as well as departments with Belarusian milk, there is in the city. Specialists in microelectronics, mostly women, had to be gathered - under Gorbachev they built the "Polar Star" and the microdistrict near it, with a school, 3 kindergartens, a sports complex with 2 halls. She barely survived under EBN, now, as the "Northern raid" lives, both workers and engineers are required. You can remember a lot of unflattering things about Nikolai Yakovlevich Kalistratov and during his years as a director at Zvyozdochka and Sevmash, but it was he who ensured that a diamond cutting workshop appeared at Zvyozdochka and our vocational school No. 28 trained cutters. Diamond cutters began with raw materials from Yakutia , and today from the fields to them. Lomonosov and them. Grib is carrying diamonds. Production diversification...

    Considering that this is the main city-forming enterprise of the not at all small, almost 200-strong wonderful city of shipbuilders of Severodvinsk-Molotovsk, this is sincerely pleasing.
    In the early 90s, when there was neither work nor money, the wonderful management of SEVMASH set up field kitchens at the plant and fed the workers as much as they could and gave them food for their families. They searched and found any, but profile work - and the repair of an Indian aircraft carrier, bought from us for three kopecks, and the construction of oil platforms, etc.
    But the plant and the people, and their VTUZ, were preserved in the Soviet way.

    Passed with galoshes, or just like that? How will they be without galoshes in such a wet place? It will be difficult for the crew to walk in it with wet boots. Galoshes do not slip on the water and the boats will not take on water. Everything, of course, is approximate, depending on the type of galoshes. It was exactly the same with the rest of the equipment, and it turned out that uniforms and other things, without normal galoshes, were washed away by water from all the bases. Probably only what was made in the temporary USSR, when everything was equipped with top-grade galoshes, remained. One prince had a scribe who began his service under the pharaohs. So after he looked at the battle through a suspicious pipe, he thought and wrote - do not brag about going to the army, but brag about going with the army. Apparently he meant a latrine that was not ready to receive a large number of winners.

That's from the opinions that you spread here. And if something happens, run to us, lawyers. Oh, something happened. Give advice. I always send such "freeloaders" to legal advice.

    Only the pace of production, alas, is not there, and there are problems with the timing of the delivery of products to the customer in general for shipbuilding, even worse than for the aircraft industry, it turned out that engineers, skilled workers were needed, but they were not prepared in the quantity necessary for the industry, and no one really wanted to go to these specialties, because it seemed that a career in these industries would be unpromising and low-paid, but here it is how it turned out, in the fat zero years we were friends with our "partners", we could buy everything from them, and officials from large offices said that there were never wars there won’t be, because there is no communism, and military-industrial complex enterprises financially survived due to exports, but now they suddenly sobered up, I wonder for how long. How many of our ships and submarines did not go through zero necessary scheduled repairs, how many ships were decommissioned before they ran out of their resource, these optimizers are still held in high esteem, and many in their positions, and they did not bear any responsibility for their harm
