Space Center them. Khrunichev requires urgent and expensive resuscitation

54
The new leadership of the space center (GKNPTs) them. Khrunicheva assesses his condition as critical, however, after 6 years, with the help of investments worth 56 billion rubles, he promised to turn the company into “the best manufacturer of launch vehicles and upper stages,” the newspaper said Look.



Yesterday, 11 of September, the new general director of the GKNPTs Andrei Kalinovsky presented to the supervisory board of the United Rocket Corporation (ORKK) a project of financial recovery of the enterprise. Led by Andrei Klepach, the board approved the program. In the coming days, the documents will be sent for approval to Roskosmos, and then to the government.

“The program will be adopted in less than a month, as the need for urgent funding is quite serious,” said the head of the SSCC, Igor Komarov, and added that “the situation is not simple, but not hopeless”.

“The accumulated losses from the operating activities of the center since 2007 have reached 11,9 billion rubles, and debts to suppliers - 14,7 billion rubles. The net profit margin forecast for this year is negative - minus 27%, enterprise productivity is 30% lower than in the industry, and the average salary is about 37 thousand rubles. In addition, the center load is no more than 40%, and the production itself is extremely non-rhythmic (up to 42 months with the 21 month per month), equipment depreciation reaches 60%, ”the data Kommersant.ru.

“Now we are starting to lose the market of commercial launches in America and Europe- complained Kalinowski. - The price of federal launches is growing. The task is to reduce the cost of launches if we want to stay on the market. ”.

In order to stabilize the work of the State Committee for Science and Technology, according to specialists, a total of 56,4 billion rubles will be required, most of which are planned to be received in parts as a loan from Vnesheconombank. The possibilities of attracting government subsidies and investments at their own expense are considered.

If everything goes according to plan, then by 2020, according to Kalinowski, the center should become “the world's best manufacturer of launch vehicles and boosters.”

It is assumed that with 2015, the company will begin to receive net profit, and with 2022, it will be possible to pay dividends. According to the general director, "the concentration of production at the sites in Moscow and in the territory of the Omsk association Polet will lead to an increase in labor productivity almost three times the 2018 year."

He also noted that “More than half of the areas of the Protons production plant in Moscow will be transferred to the state-owned banks by 2018 in the year, this will get rid of unused workshops, reduce costs and reinvest in production.”

In addition, the center will reduce the range of products and abandon small satellites and modules for the ISS.

“The total area of ​​the rocket and space enterprise in Moscow will decrease from 140,6 ha in 2014 to 52 ha in 2018, decreasing by 63%. At the same time, the production area will be reduced from 341,3 thousand to 123,1 thousand square meters. meters Salary will grow from 37 thousand to 78 thousand rubles, which will solve the personnel problem in the enterprise ”, - said the head of the GKNPTs.

The space center in recent years has often been criticized by Roscosmos for its unsatisfactory financial condition, as well as in connection with the accidents of rocket and space technology. In August of this year, Andrey Kalinovsky, who earlier headed Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, was appointed to the post of general director.

      I remember that in winter, GDP uttered words about those who did not understand that they had to live in wartime.
      A direct military confrontation (war) has not been declared to anyone, but the situation is repeated when the GDP persistently recommended that accounts in Western banks be "returned" to Russia ....

The name alone is civilian aircraft dry belay Dry are fighters, fighter-bombers ... yes these are the best cars in their class but not civilian ones .. one superjet is 70% imported what it costs.

      The funny thing is that there are very good specialists in Khrunichev (not everyone has fled yet), but with such a salary, in a few years they will actually spit on all these dances with an official tambourine. It seems to me that this is some other show-off who came to power. I don't even want to talk about "let's sit and see" - there is no more time to watch, if these urds do not change at least something in their approach, then the enterprise will cross the line beyond which no one can help it :(

    GKNPTs Khrunichevo until now ran a barbaric business based on bribery and corruption of officials. And these are not unfounded statements. The result of the deliberate destruction of the industry by Western agents of influence has now been announced. The result is logical, the most high-tech industry in Russia requires investments of more than $ 1 billion. that would be stupid to survive. What can we say about other industries, where the same "effective managers" Serdyukov & Company "are still at the top.

    "labor productivity at the enterprise is 30% lower than in the industry" ... and with what does it compare ... who has exactly the same products ???
    Only such a statement is enough to completely change the leadership.

    If the military-industrial complex will steer business, nothing will work! The military-industrial complex should be state (but not bureaucratic), and cheaper, and there is someone to ask! bully Moreover, the military-industrial complex should be RUSSIAN good ! This will reduce the dependence on imports good !Believe me, I know the prices sad and manufacturers what , and quality sad !

    Second AvtoVAZ, half sell, half steal !!! Where will the profitability come from? There are no competent, economic specialists in the leadership, some thieves who have the task of pumping money alone.

    Or expensive resuscitation, or long agony. There are no options.
    Another thing is that disinfection is needed otherwise everything will happen again

    Where have the Accounting Chamber been looking all these years?
    Neither profitability nor profit, some debts of many billions! .. And no one was interested in such activities.
    And then there is the policy in the country such that all design institutes and design bureaus are under the hammer (not only in the space industry). A lot of private shops are appearing in the country, which are merging with each other and issue licenses to themselves. And where is the responsibility? Nakosyachil and filed for bankruptcy. All! Smooth bribes!

    In this story, something reminds me of our 90s, a sort of 500-day program, Mr. Gaidar, by the way, maybe they are relatives? And what profit can we talk about? First you should pay off your debts, and then think about profit. In general, the program with a choke, another obvious cut.

    Well, yes, Kalinovsky will help us, of course! He plant them. V.P. Chkalov was almost destroyed in Novosibirsk, Sukhoi was fused into civilian aircraft. He barely lifted the release of the Superjet and nothing more. And with "Khrunichev" it will be just byada ...

    Communicating with the Khrunichevites for duty and for a long time, I got my personal impression that this is a reserve of old "whisperers" claiming large non-business rewards. They do not live yesterday but LONGER YESTERDAY. Their development of electronics and products is at the level of the 80s of the last century. And they want to receive, as it is today. The main problem of Khrunichev is personnel. Young staff who do not exist. There are guys in the wings, serving their relatives and godfathers for the office, for which the Muscovite will not even get up from the couch. But they have from other sides. There, in general, ALL should be kicked out nafig. and new recruit, those who are going to work and not pretend.

    Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin notes: “On January 12, an unmanned Cygnus spacecraft docked to the ISS, delivering 1,5 tons of equipment, food and CubeSat-standard satellites to low Earth orbit. The total carrying capacity of this ship is 2,7 tons. Our “Progress-M” is capable of lifting a little more than 2 tons into orbit. It is important that Cygnus, like its Antares booster, was created not by a state corporation, but by a small private American company Orbital Sciences, which employs only 4 thousand people. In addition, last year, the Dragon spaceship created by SpaceX and capable of delivering 6 tons of cargo into orbit flew to the ISS last year. In addition to the ships of these two companies and our Progress, the spacecraft unmanned vehicles to the ISS are ATV launch vehicles of the European Space Agency (payload of 7,7 tons) and HTV of the Japan Aerospace Research Agency (6 tons).
    But not only and not so much in payload. The manned spacecraft Soyuz and the transport vehicle Progress are veterans of the space program. SpaceX was founded in 2002. It employs 3800 employees. This is 12 times less than, for example, in the GKNPC them. MV Khrunicheva, where another veteran of the national space is being assembled - the heavy carrier rocket Proton. Including for this reason, flights of domestic launch vehicles and ships are more expensive than our western competitors. Comparison of the cost of space technology in Russia and China, in which the space program is elevated to the rank of state priority, is also not in our favor. ”
