At the Baltic Fleet modernized moorings

A new mooring infrastructure for mooring and basing of ships of various classes is being created in the main naval base of the Baltic fleet - Baltiysk, said the head of the information support department of the ZVO press service for the Baltic Fleet, captain of the 2nd rank V. Matveev.

In accordance with the schedule of construction and installation works on special objects of the Baltic Fleet, overhaul of the berthing front is currently being carried out in the harbors of the Baltic naval base in the Baltic Sea fleet. In particular, communications are replaced, ensuring the parking and basing of ships, and dredging is underway. A new mooring infrastructure is being created with the prospect of entering the fleet of ships of a new generation and will be able to provide for the basing of ships from 3 to 1 of rank — sentry, corvettes, frigates, destroyers.

The total length of the new berthing front will be about 3 kilometers. The volume of soil to be raised during dredging operations exceeds 1,3 million cubic meters. Works are carried out by the Baltic Hydrotechnical Construction Administration, more than 180 specialists are involved in the facility and about 50 units of various specialized construction equipment. Construction work is complicated by the periodic detection of ammunition during World War II.

As a result of the modernization, the safety of the moorage and basing of the fleet ships will also be improved regardless of hydrometeorological conditions. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2015.

    These berths are good, the main thing is that there was then something to moor.

      Not long ago, at some point in Mistral I raised the issue of infrastructure. However, it would be worthwhile to carry out such work in Vladivostok, where the Mistral bases are planned, since there is not enough space for them and in order to avoid the fate of Minsk and Novorossiysk, which, due to the lack of proper infrastructure, worked out their motor resources while standing on the roads. Baltiysk is even better in terms of infrastructure than Vladivostok. However, the fact that work in this direction is being carried out at least in Baltiysk is already good.

    This is a common problem for all fleets ... there is practically no coastal infrastructure, what was previously sold or fell into decay ... isolation from the repair bases of the fleet leads to disastrous consequences ... our nuclear ships SSV- 33 "Ural", TARKR "Admiral Lazarev" the former "Frunze", on the roadstead, having exhausted its entire service life, our TAVKRs "Kiev", "Minsk", "Novorossiysk" "fell", as a result they were sold to China for a pittance ... TAVKR "Gorshkov", aka "Baku" went to India ... thank God, they saved "Kuznetsov" by placing it in Murmansk, before that he was quietly dying in Vidyaevo at an unfinished pier, cut off from repair enterprises and supply bases ... what conditions our submariners have ... finally put things in order in Vilyuchinsk ... Our Black Sea Fleet is also practically homeless ... Sevastopol is limited by an agreement with Ukraine, Novorossiysk also has a number of features ... Well, the Baltic Sea has been asking for a long time ... .thanks to the Germans for building a base in Pilau-Baltiysk at one time ... who there was one who saw the quay wall ... THERE WILL BE NO INFRASTRUCTURE, THERE WILL BE NO FLEET !!!

    Actually, the wharves are being overhauled, not modernized. The word modernization somehow does not fit in this context.
