Military Review

We modernize and guarantee

An interview with Sergey Khviyuzov, head of the department for repair, modernization, warranty supervision and disposal (URMGiU), was a great journalistic success. Sergei Mikhailovich, like most factory managers, is very busy: meetings, checks, meetings, business trips - the working day is scheduled in minutes. In an interview, Sergei Mikhailovich spoke about the areas of production activity that today are priorities for management, as well as what was new in the structure of the department’s responsibilities.

And the first question I asked Sergei Mikhailovich was about the promotion of work on the cruiser Admiral Nakhimov.

- As you know, the fate of this ship was decided for more than one year, - said Sergey Khviyuzov. - The fleet refused to simply repair the idea of ​​the cruiser, it became clear to everyone that in order to become a modern combat unit, the Admiral Nakhimov needs to be modernized. After a long discussion about the appearance of the ship, the development of the technical project was entrusted to the Northern PKB. And just recently, it was possible to resolve two main issues with the designer - to conclude contracts for the creation of a technical project, and 14 in March to sign a contract for the development of working design documentation. These are the fundamental contracts that will allow the company to obtain all the documentation for the repair and modernization of the ship. The Northern PKB should complete the development of the technical project in October of this year, it will allow to assess the entire scope of the modernization and create customized statements for this volume.

The main task of the year is to put the cruiser in the dry dock of the 50 workshop on a firm basis, so that the operation is successful, serious preparation is underway: large-sized equipment, systems and mechanisms are being dismantled for repair and disposal, installation of the TOZ systems, production of four pontoons in the workshop 42 for docking. For two years, “Nakhimov” should stand at the dock, during this period the inspection of the ship hull, repair of the shaft line, other systems and equipment that need to be done at the dock will begin.

- Another area of ​​work of URMGiU is guarantee supervision and maintenance of nuclear submarines, which Sevmash passed the fleet. Today, under warranty are Yuri Dolgoruky and Alexander Nevsky. What new has appeared in this area of ​​Sevmash?

- The most important innovation is that the period of warranty supervision for fourth-generation boats has doubled and now is five years. This obliges manufacturers to take greater responsibility for the technique. In turn, Sevmash put forward requirements for the customer to regularly carry out servicing of submarines, because only in this case can you carry warranty obligations for such a long period. An understanding in this regard has been found, as a result, the Navy has already ordered Sevmash to work on servicing ships for the next three years. Such orders are beneficial to Sevmash. It is necessary to create service centers under the auspices of USC, which would be separately financed and represent the interests of several related enterprises at once.

- Warranty obligations come from the moment of signing the acceptance certificate of the ship, and under what conditions does the elimination of the malfunction go not at the expense of Sevmash?

- There are two GOST, in which the algorithm is fixed troubleshooting. If it is proved that the defect was due to improper use of equipment by the personnel of the submarine, then the costs are borne by the Navy. If the failure occurred due to the fault of the supplier of the equipment, in this case he is responsible for correcting the failure. That is, who is to blame, he pays. Each separate warranty case is considered on a special commission, the corresponding decision is made. Experience shows that often a large part of equipment failures occur as a result of improper use of equipment by personnel.

- Sergey, and the repair of nuclear submarines today relevant to the enterprise activity?

- Sevmash, as a contractor, cooperates with the Zvezdochka enterprise on repair and maintenance of third-generation boats. This work is conducted regularly, it is understandable and interesting. And not so long ago, Sevmash set about the work that was familiar to him - the installation of fairings on the Yekaterinburg submarine, which is being renovated at Zvezdochka. The URMGIU team is always ready to tackle new challenging tasks, because the management team is an excellent team of professionals.

    Experience shows that often the majority equipment failure occurs as a result of improper operation of equipment by personnel. Author Julia VLADIMIROVA

    "... bounce work technique ... ", really simple bounce technology does not express the essence of what was said? He writes very “smartly” ... And what about the “human factor”, because the inescapable truth “technology is in the hands of a savage - a piece of metal” is imperishable and topical.

    New equipment must be installed! Modernization is not perfecting the good old, but NEW !!! And it would be better if these analogues were not in the world! Then the name of the ships will terrify our enemies !!!!

    I don't quite agree, colleague! In 1966 in Kiel (FRG) the floating base "Kronstadt Slava" with a displacement of 19000 tons was launched. How the devil spat! We returned to Kiel three times to repair the main engine support bearings!

    Navy ships need modernization; after modernization, the ship serves another twenty years on par with the new ones.

    Unfortunately, the fleet is recovering from the turmoil much more slowly than other branches and types of troops. Even small corvettes are being built prohibitively long, the lead frigate of Project 22350 was laid down in the distant 2006, and has not yet entered the fleet. So far, only talk about larger ships. In such conditions, the repair and modernization of existing equipment becomes not only important, but a vital task for the fleet. This will allow both to keep the largest and most powerful units in the fleet, and to gradually restore the personnel potential of our shipbuilding, which has suffered more than other branches of the defense industry from the "crap". And there and in the Navy things will improve.

    For two years, "Nakhimov" must stand in the dock, during this period, the ship will begin to detect and repair the hull, repair the shaft line, other systems and equipment that must be completed in the dock.
    On the "fishermen" of the Icelanders (the former OUR steamers of German construction of the Moozund type and of the Spanish construction of the Commonwealth type) repair and modernization at the dock is carried out in 1-2 months. 12-hour working day, very intense, Sunday is a day off. And forward to the fishing - to earn a few lemons bucks a month to their owners.

      A huge nuclear cruiser, in fact a battleship, with unique weapons and capabilities can not be compared with any German ship. Moreover, this is a pioneer. The modernization of the following cruisers, if any, will be much faster.

    Well, at least 100%, you can say that at least 2 Orlan will remain in operation .. until 2035-40.
    On two other doubts are big.
    + 3 Atlanta.
    This is 5 shock universal ships with powerful air defense - the basis of 2 shock groups
    + by 7-8 Sarychei and BOD 1155 up to 2020 will be modernized and turned into full-fledged universal destroyers. Here you have the escort.
    Moscow with 6 Thalwar RU in the Baltic
    So much for the 3 escort for 3x aircraft carriers (Kuznets + 2 Mistral) - Pacific Fleet, Northern Fleet, BF
    And there, already slowly, new destroyers will be introduced, if God willing, along with a new aircraft carrier.
    And in 35-40xx they will begin to write off.
    Americans extended almost all of their ships to 35, and new projects froze and cut to 2-3 units - and not everything went smoothly with them.
    True, aircraft carriers continue to rivet - next year, JFord will enter service - the newest and largest aircraft carrier. After him, Kennedy will be built before 20, etc.
