Sea rescue tugboat launched in the Leningrad region

Blog bmpd reports that October 24 at the Pella shipyard in Leningrad (Leningrad Oblast, Otradnoe) was launched the multi-purpose sea-rescue tug MB-121 (project 02980, building number 801). The vessel is almost in full readiness.

Sea rescue tugboat launched in the Leningrad region

“This 48-meter tug is the first ship of a new project, a series of which is being commissioned by the Russian Navy to solve a wide range of tasks fleet. It was laid July 22, 2013. It is assumed that by December 1, 2014 MB-121 will become part of the Leningrad Naval Base "- indicates a blogger.

Total ordered 4 tug. The second ship is at the completion stage. The third case is laid 17 October, and for the fourth metal is already cut.

The author notes that “the launch of the MB-121 was made with the help of the ship launch channel of the new shipbuilding complex of the Pella plant, which uses modern technology of longitudinal launch of ships on a wedge-shaped platform with a high degree of automation.”

The vessel, which is on special supports, is lifted along with these supports and moves along the exhaust paths to an open slipway by a device called a ship train, which consists of 10 pairs of electric and hydraulic drives.

“Ship-train” moves the ship with supports to the wedge-shaped platform and with the help of winches it moves down along the ship-launch canal. Tilt angle - 3 degrees. Gradually, the platform is immersed in water, and the vessel remains afloat. The depth of the canal at the place of the full ascent of the vessel is 20 m.

Construction of the second multi-purpose tug project 02980.

        Handsome man good Such a strong guy inflated laughing It seems it’s also an icebreaking class - it could, on occasion, work with an icebreaker in a base and in not thick ice. It’s not so great!

          He is an ice class. Like his lesser brothers in the Neva and the Gulf of Finland.
          The whole team of the Pella plant is great!
          Thanks to General Director Tsaturov, the plant, in spite of the revoreters, survived in the 90s and now produces such handsome men.

    Well, Pella this year gives coal, that is, tugboats, boats and ships! This year 4 Raptor, 1 Cormorant (+ 2 FSB) 2 SKPO-1000 (+ 2 is already the final completion), 8 tugs!

    Current state - MB-123 will soon go into the water for MB-121, OIC Ladoga (like Selinger Ave. 11982) has already assembled the hull, the third 02980 tug that Shoigu laid on the day of shooting.

    New Shipyard Plan

    In practice.

    Well, the Raptors are under construction:

    By the way from drummers:
    Alexander Piskunov fired at the Pacific Fleet, now the bureaucracy and the signing, in November they will raise the flag.

    Rybinsk was molesting a communications boat, already at NVMB; they will also raise the flag in November.

    In Astrakhan packs are building new multifunctional catamarans of 23370 ave., For KFL / Black Sea Fleet, and KAMPO has already assembled three pieces for the BF, including the Fire modification with the onboard 2097

    MSSZ and the Nobel Brothers have already taken the second diving boat from 3 to completion (MSSZ collects, Nobel completes building). This 14157 project is smaller and cheaper than 23040, while providing work on 60 meters, it can also be the basis for an underwater robot. All 3 should be delivered next year (the lead one will soon run to the Baltic), also 2 boats are already being operated at the Pacific Fleet built by the Blagoveshchensk plant in 2013.

    At the forum, many gasped about helmsman systems for helicopter carriers. Where we, unfortunate, will take them and in what country will we order?
    Himself not funny now?
    Look at the pictures and be proud of our Russian shipbuilders!

    Fortified people have correctly noticed this, since such a form helps to be very maneuverable, which is very important for a tugboat, especially in the confined water area. It can turn around in place.
    In general, the good news is a great help to warships.

    A beautiful boat! It would be better if the name was given to him instead of MB, for example, "Peterbug". And for civilian purposes, it is also good!
