Russia has avoided a penalty for a puncture with an aircraft carrier for India thanks to the admiral VIP-salon

27
The Indian side will not demand compensation for a serious failure to meet the deadlines for the construction and delivery of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya (former Admiral Gorshkov), modernized at the Severodvinsk enterprise Sevmash. About this at the exhibition of arms LIMA-2013 on Thursday said the deputy director of Rosoboronexport OJSC Viktor Komardin. According to him, if everything goes according to plan, the transfer of the ship to the customer will take place on November 15 2013.


Answering the question of ITAR-TASS, whether India will impose fines for delays in deliveries, Komardin said: "The customer has a right to this, but I think that we will find a solution to this issue acceptable to each other." “In principle, we have already found them,” he noted.

Komardin did not disclose the reasons for Delhi’s benevolent attitude to the situation, but the media found out that, perhaps, the absence of complaints was affected by additional work to re-equip the cabin of the ship, undertaken by Russians on their own initiative. According to Nezavisimaya Gazeta, the St. Petersburg company Marine Complex Systems is currently performing deluxe finishing in the cabins of the aircraft carrier commander, compound commander and in the admiral cabin.

These VIP works were not covered by the contract. According to the sources of NG, the re-equipment became a kind of compensation for regular violations of the deadlines for the transfer of the ship, which was considered to be more profitable at costs than possible huge fines.

Commenting on the situation with an aircraft carrier on the eve, Viktor Komardin noted that he was surprised by the hype raised around this issue in the media. He recalled that an even more serious situation had arisen with the fulfillment by France of deliveries of India to non-nuclear submarines Scorpene. "There the deadlines were broken by 3-4 of the year, prices rose substantially. I was told that the boats are supplied separately from the control systems. There is a complete failure," said the deputy head of Rosoboronexport, noting that when the French pay fines, then it will be possible to demand the same.

Misadventures of "Admiral Gorshkov"

The contract for the modernization of the heavy aircraft carrier "Admiral Gorshkov" was concluded with India in 2004 year. The agreement provided for the allocation of 974 million dollars for the restoration and restructuring of the aircraft carrier, as well as 530 million dollars for the supply of 16 MiG-29K fighters and sea anti-submarine helicopters Ka-31 and Ka-27. The ship should have been handed over to the customer back in 2008, then it was a question of 4 December, 2012, reminds Interfax.

Due to the increase in the amount of work, the deadlines for the delivery of the aircraft carrier were extended. Significantly increased the cost of work. Currently, the price of this transaction, according to unofficial data, is about 2,3 billion dollars.

A serious emergency, which led to the next postponement of the ship, was the detection of problems in the aircraft carrier's boiler plant in October 2012 during tests in the White and Barents Seas. As a result, the program of factory running tests was curtailed. The Indian crew of the Vikramadithi returned to the base of Vishakhapatnam in late December.

In February 1 of the United Shipbuilding Corporation 2013 of the year reported that all work on the replacement of the thermal insulation of the aircraft carrier's boiler room, the problems in which did not allow running tests to be completed last year, was completed.

It is assumed that testing in the Barents Sea will be resumed in summer. In October, the aircraft carrier will again arrive at the plant and will be preparing for a long voyage to the Indian Ocean. The ship will be assigned to the new base of the Indian Navy Karwar on the west coast of Karnataka, where the nuclear submarine Chakra (formerly Nerpa) will also be leased from Russia.

      I completely agree, they no longer know how to put rot on this subject. It looks like the ship was brought to mind, that’s raging for the last.

        Gorshkov was sold to India in 2004, they planned to surrender in 2008, they asked for 750 million green essno for modernization, they put off the deadline for five years and the amount increased to 2,3 billion who want to go mad

          The price has increased 3 times. The question is, what? And in dollars .... And if in gold?
          "The price of gold on the London Stock Exchange December 30 2007 year (afternoon fixing) was $ 833,75 / oz. "http://www.cmmarket.ru/articles/0803161413.htm
          “Gold remains a promising asset for investors next year. Gold is the only actual money that does not depend on the central bank. And in 2013, many central banks will build up money supply and seek to depreciate their currencies in order to reduce the real value of accumulated debt. Therefore, long-term investors will most likely buy gold, ”says Ian Gunner, portfolio manager of Altana Wealth. However, in the most optimistic for gold (and pessimistic for the global economy) scenario, the price of the main precious metal will be at most $ 2000 / troy ounce. Consensus- the forecast of world banks for gold, calculated by "Money", is 1912 dollars / troy ounce. We emphasize that we are talking about the average annual price, which does not exclude the achievement of the level 2100-2200 USD / troy ounce during the year http://www.mayak.zp.ua/review-analysis/1996-prognoz-srednegodovykh-tsen-na-z

          That is, the increase in the price of gold at the time of delivery of the aircraft carrier compared to 2007 (and contracting took place even earlier) is also about 3 times. The price of an aircraft carrier in gold has not changed much, which means that the dollar has devalued 3 times, thanks, the Indians should say to the Fed ... It's time to switch to a dollar-free trade, no one (except the world banking system) will be offended ...

      The title is a provocation, this is obvious. In fact, only specialists and the customer know what is what. And if the customer had serious claims to the performer, then there certainly would not have been without an international scandal. India is full of its liberals licking Amerov’s dupa and they would not fail to yap at Russia.
      And so, everything goes according to plan (I think so!).
      I wish the factory workers more work, so that orders will be 100 years ahead!

      Since the admiral's salon was designed in "luxury" - do not go to the fortuneteller, not for the Indian, but for their own admirals, so they decided to quiet down the boat, not to sell .... "You need such a cow yourself." laughing

    Aircraft carrier is a very long pleasure. And in itself it is not very functional. Need a complex of ships. Previously, the Union did not have such ships, and the fleet was considered the best in the world. If the doctrine is defense, then you can do without it. It’s better to set up other ships for the fleets for that money, their fleet is already very painfully outdated and thinned.

    We can say that the delay in the delivery of the aircraft carrier Vikramoudi occurred partly due to the fault of the Indians themselves, who decided to replace asbestos with burnt brick. But about the admiral’s cabin, I think instead of a forfeit, a golden toilet will be built, i.e. enormous apparatus.
