New developments of the Central Design Bureau for hydrofoil vessels named after R.E. Alekseeva

34
During the exhibition “International Naval Salon-2013”, held in St. Petersburg last week, Russian shipbuilders announced the upcoming revival of one almost forgotten direction. During July, the Vympel shipyard in Rybinsk will begin construction of a new hydrofoil vessel. The last time such equipment was built in our country about twenty years ago.


Nizhny Novgorod Central Design Bureau for hydrofoil them. R.E. Alekseeva (Central Design Bureau for SEC) several decades ago created several models of such equipment, which became widely known. However, recently the development and construction of hydrofoil vessels has ceased. The new ship, bookmarked for the coming days, will be built in accordance with the new project 23160 "Comet-120". This project, allegedly, combines the best practices of past years, as well as modern technologies and electronic equipment. According to the figurative expression of the General Director and Chief Designer of the TsKB for SEC S. Platonov, “Komet-120M” differs from the previous “Komet” in the same way as the Sapsan train differs from a simple train.

From the previous ships on hydrofoils, the new “Kometa-120M” is primarily characterized by its wide use of composite materials in the construction. In addition, management systems have undergone major improvements. As a result of all these measures, several tons were saved and the vessel was considerably lightened. The reduction in the weight of the entire vessel, in turn, made it possible to change the draft and design of the hydrofoils, which ultimately had a beneficial effect on driving performance. The stated maximum speed of “Comet 120M” is near 60 nodes, which exceeds the capabilities of all previous ships of this class.

23160 project vessels are proposed to be equipped with modern electronic navigation and communication equipment. At the IMDS-2013 cabin, the TsKB for SEC demonstrated not only the models of their hydrofoil vessels, but also the full-scale layout of the Komet-120М control systems. All the usual devices on the panel are replaced by several large monitors, and most of the controls have given way to push-button controls. At the same time, the functionality and information content of new systems fully complies, and in some indicators it exceeds the corresponding indicators of the systems used earlier.

The declared economic qualities of the new ship Kometa-120М are likely to interest potential customers. The payback period is set at five years, and the total lifetime with timely maintenance should exceed 25 years. During this period, the ship will be able to carry up to 120 passengers during each flight. It is especially noted that two options “Comets-120М” are available for ordering, intended for operation on rivers and at sea. Most of the design of both options has no differences, but the ship for the sea will have a different anti-corrosion coating of structural elements and a hydrofoil of a different shape, adapted for work in sea conditions.

The construction of the first hydrofoil ship of the Kometa-120M project will start from day to day. In the future, CDB for hydrofoil vessels to them. R.E. Alekseeva plans to bring to production a few more such projects. So, at the last exhibition, the model of a ship on hydrofoils of the 23170 “Cyclone-250М” project, designed for the transportation of 250 passengers, was demonstrated. In addition, in the coming years, the serial construction of 23180 “Valdai-45Р” vessels, capable of carrying about four dozen passengers, can begin. However, these projects are still in the plans. First of all, the Central Design Bureau for SEC intends to launch the production of new “Komet-120M”. Only after these vessels go to work on passenger traffic will preparations for the construction of other types of SECs begin.

The impetus to the current work of the TsKB on hydrofoil vessels and the Vympel shipbuilding plant can be considered the Federal Target Program “Development of Civilian Maritime Transport”, within the framework of which promising research and development programs are financed. In the course of this program, only the Central Clinical Hospital for the SEC them. R.E. Alekseeva commissioned by the Ministry of Industry and Trade has several projects, the total cost of which exceeds 590 million rubles. According to the available information, the Central Design Bureau is required to prepare four hydrofoil projects and two aircraft vessels on an air cavity by 2014, as well as to conduct several research programs necessary for the implementation of other projects.

The high characteristics of new ships on hydrofoils, as well as the extensive experience of operating such equipment, suggest that Kometa-120M will be of interest to potential customers and will enter a certain amount in service with shipping companies. It is too early to speak about the specific prospects of the Central Design Bureau for the SEC, since the construction of the first ship of the new project has not even begun yet.

      "Comet-120". Displacement 72 tons. Passenger capacity 120, Crew 5. Speed ​​not 60, but 35. Range 200 miles. Seaworthiness, on the wing 2 m. Displacement 2,5.
      Alekseevskaya "Kometa" - excellent aerodynamics (blown in a wind tunnel). Speed ​​32 knots. 2 Diesel M401 1000 ehp each plant "Zvezda" (The weakest point, unreliable with a small motor resource).
      "Comet-120". with the same indicators, except for speed, it is 3 knots higher and seaworthiness in displacement is 1 point lower, with the use of composite materials 10 tons heavier.
      For the "convenience" of the crew, the wheelhouse was shifted from the bow to the stern, which sharply limited the observation of the water surface. "Comets" will tell you that even having caught a piece of cellophane film on the wing, the lift of the wing drops sharply.
      Good luck with the development of the SPK, but "Comet-120" looks like a freak in comparison with Alekseevskaya. "Comets" are still flying in Italy, Greece, and there is no better imported SPK. There they went the other way. High-speed catamarans with a minimum waterline area, or with a cavity, like "Bora".
      I hope the future "Cyclone" will be two-shaft. You don't have to order tugs to get to the pier.
      Good luck to the shipbuilders of the SPK. But the most excellent "Comets" were built in Feodosia.

        And now Super and Eurofoils are under construction - just not for us. Remember. In the good old days it was possible to get directly from Odessa to Yalta by "Comet". And now only in the form of an excursion or a detour along the coast.

    Very good news! So they didn’t bury the ideas of the great inventor Alekseev. For Russia, these ships are needed as air, especially on the Siberian rivers and the Far East, where there are few roads and airfields. It seems that they also have something for defense, because there are a lot of Alekseyevtsi they did in this direction: what is the Caspian Monster worth! The Yankees wrote in boiling water when they found out about this car.

      My dear kartallovkola, and you did not ask yourself what is the navigation period on the Siberian rivers, and not what, that most of these rivers are used for rafting forests, The use of this type of ships in the USSR was caused by geographical features, implied the presence of significant infrastructure and compensated for the lack of availability of other species Currently, it can be said that most river routes will not be profitable and are completely replaced by motor transport, there remain: 1 Azov-Black Sea basin, but today it is divided by state borders, which does not contribute to the formation of passenger traffic of the required volume, which does not gives prerequisites for the revival of infrastructure.2 The water area of ​​Lake Ladoga and the Gulf of Finland - there is a preservation of some remnants of the infrastructure, but the low navigation period and excise fuel prices will greatly limit the scale of use of these vessels mode), questions also exist for the White Sea region, Primorsky Territory, the Caspian region. All the fuss described in the article is caused by the possibility of making a profit when replacing outdated (morally but mainly physically) fleets of the SNPK of Greece and Turkey, which mainly operate (in quantitative terms) Soviet-built ships (the same "Komets") And has a very conditional relation to the revival of commercial water transport in Russia.

            Were you at the border at that moment or were you listening to the media again? Who cares who limited the territory? There is TODAY and there is a border. Within the CIS, everyone traveled without visas, and not within the framework of some kind of stupid vehicle. And with the EU, why then does Moscow seek visa abolition?
            It will become easier for you personally if the border guard at the seaport (in Yalta) does not let you through "face control" because there is no visa. I think to her.

As for registration. I had a friend, that year, he came to St. Petersburg (a Russian passport, but lives in Balta (Ukraine) with one citizenship with him.) So the police clung to him why he was not registered. Maybe they were just cops.

                  If a person lives in one country and comes to another, then, even if he has "one" citizenship - any services, in our troubled times (terrorist attacks, friendship with the enemies of the host country, etc.) are obliged to pay attention to such a person ...

        So Argon.
        Firstly, navigation on Siberian rivers is limited by floods - then shallow water and rifts prevent barges. What is the depth of the Rocket or the Meteor at full speed?
        Secondly, molar rafting of the forest has long been stopped due to high losses of the forest.
        Third, river passenger transport for many areas is uncontested.
        Fourth, fuel consumption per kilometer for SPV is two times lower than for VIS.
        Fifth, given the range of transitions in the ACB, it is quite possible to organize a customs regime like airports.
        In the sixth, it’s also good because it organizes highly qualified jobs and feeds our production.

Or do you have an opinion on cinema? And what is the duration of navigation on the Siberian rivers, tell me ?!
        "Comet" - SEC for very large lakes and coastal sea swimming! On the Siberian rivers and on the Amur River, they never saw her! And there’s nothing to it there. Here in Vladivostok they are, in particular he goes to Nakhodka, and there are many more.
        On the great Siberian rivers, "Rockets" and gliding catamarans "Zarya" and "Polesie" still go. Do you say rafts float on rivers? laughing So what?? On large GDPs, where rafts are also being posted (if still !!!), it never stopped the high-speed vessels of the SEC! And where do the rafts actually melt the forest in Siberia, do not tell me?
        but a low navigation period and excise fuel prices will severely limit the scale of use of these vessels, take a word,

        And what, for the same reasons, have people already stopped using personal cars, stopped using taxi services? It seems like it’s not cheap either. Or is it already, people don’t have to get from point A to point B? wink

      I do not like these words - but really need large-scale government support for river shipping. Indeed, 30 years ago, half of the villages along the Volga could have been reached by such ships. Of course, now the people have a lot more cars, but the directions, and not the roads, are still ours. wink in so many places. Yes, and Siberia, Far East, Don - where many of them are of great benefit. According to the clever - a serious increase in regional transport connectivity wink

    On the Volga, every hour almost rushed.

    And along the Kama ... And along the Vishera ... Sometimes the only transport was.

    Alekseev is of course a genius, but as for me, the time of hydrofoil ships has passed. If you need to swim quickly, then Australian catamarans showed how to do it.

      And what is the passenger capacity? These are ocean and sea catamarans. They also go through the English Channel. And for the river surface and in small water areas such vessels are appropriate. The Dutch know how to count money, and buy Eurofoils.

      Andrew! In Ukraine there are (or may have already been) 2 high-speed catamarans (42 knots) for 320 passengers. "Blue Arrow" and "Crimean Arrow". They turned out to be unnecessary and quietly died on the wall in Yalta opposite the Sea Station. By the way, you are not an Australian, but a US warrior. (See in the photo. Yalta, Seaport. There are two arrows on the pier, nose to nose).

        In the former republics of the USSR, much has rotted.
        The fact that in the photo the apparatus from the US Navy I know, but they did it in Australia.

    WIG CKB on SPK

    At the 6th International Naval Salon in St. Petersburg, the Central Design Bureau for the SEC presented a new draft ekranoplan.
    A-050-742d marine base ekranoplan is designed for high-speed passenger transportation.
    LENGTH, m - 34,8
    WIDTH overall, m - 25,3
    TAKEOFF WEIGHT, t - 54,0
    DRAFT, m - 1,3
    Flight speed, km / h - 350-450
    RANGE, km - up to 5000
    CAPACITY, t– 9
    CREW - 4
    PASSENGERS, pax - 100
    SEAFARE (wave height), m
    takeoff / landing - 1,5
    Gentlemen, the only route on the Black Sea is Novorossiysk-Sochi. The price of a ticket for 110 nautical miles (200 km) is more than two thousand rubles, that is, for a journey of one km more than 10 rubles, and for a flight by plane –5 rubles. Therefore, few are willing. The only hope for a high-speed fleet is ekranoplans. The fuel consumption of a 12-seater Orion-12P (formerly called Ivolga-EP-12, its designer V. Kolganov built his copy of CYG-11 in China), an experimental ekranoplan of the Border Service of the FSB of Russia - from 20 to 30 liters per 100 km, this is three to four times less than that of the maize AN-2. Based on 1 passenger-km less than the latest Boeing-787. In Sakha-Yakutia in July 2013, tests of the 24-seater Burevestnik-24 ekranolet will begin. Fuel consumption of 50-70 liters per 100 km, that is, also less than that of the best aircraft.
    South Korea built a 47-seat WSH-500 under license from German Hanno Fischer.
    We take into account all these ekranoplanes cruising speed of 175-220 km / h. On the go - on the screen they can fly at an altitude of up to 4 meters, that is, a 2-3 meter wave along the drum.

    The ship is interesting. If only they were ordered, and not they drove old galoshes like "Bulgaria" - all darned welding ... And the passengers would be happy. The income would be less, but constantly, and not for one season, then cook-brew. The trouble with us is that every shopkeeper considers himself to be such an entrepreneur who deserves a villa in Spain, hence the prices are several times higher than in Europe.

      Hmm ... not so wink You can there about the price of fuel, service, spare parts, bribes to all types of supervision, etc. To recall. Recall that any business can people in gray press for a couple of months, etc.
      And this is just a normal reaction to the conditions of doing business as a shopkeeper wink

      But the funny thing is that most likely river passenger traffic will still be unprofitable. But since Connectivity is the most important criterion for the quality of life, I think the state needs to date them, as they subsidize public transport.

    In the recent past, "Rockets" and "Meteors" ran along the rivers of Russia, "Comets", comfortable, economical, and beautiful hydrofoils, sailed in coastal regions. It will not require large expenditures to modernize them and put them into production again, but it will help to solve many transport problems. The samples shown in the photograph are very similar to these legendary ships.

    It’s a pity that the ECIP stalled a very impressive machine, especially with a take-off weight of 500 tons and a load capacity of 200 tons, and the fuel generally a song from 30% to 70% water and, moreover, it could generate in flight take off from an unprepared site 500 meters long, move on the screen Ruslan and Mriya are resting.

    Why don't coastguard ships do hydrofoil? In principle, the cost of construction is almost the same as that of a water-substituted one, and the operation is cheaper, and the possibilities are higher.
