Last week I visited Novorossiysk at the invitation of the Federal Agency for Special Construction (Spetsstroy) (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spetsstroy), an organization created in 1951 to build Moscow air defense facilities. Now Spetsstroy is engaged in the construction of military facilities throughout Russia from the Arctic to the Caucasus and is leading dozens of huge construction projects at the same time. One of the largest is Novorossiysk. They build both the headquarters of the Navy and the new multifunctional port, in which all types of ships in service can be based at the same time. fleet. Now the construction of a grandiose object - a military harbor with moorings for submarines is nearing completion.
The most difficult and expensive in this construction is almost two and a half kilometers of the pier, which protects the harbor from the outside from the storm, and from the inside it is a pier.
The thin strip of the pier is actually more than 15 meters wide.
On the side of the open sea, the pier has this form.
On the inner side, on the pier, there are cushioned structures with mooring fenders.
The pier consists of separate platforms mounted on piles. The depth is quite large, so the height of the underwater part reaches 50 meters - from the 15-storeyed house!
Watch a video about harbor construction and pile construction.
Inside the main harbor there is another submarine harbor.
For their mooring used huge round fenders.
That's how they look on land.
View of the submarine harbor.
To make this shot I took to the air on this little Robinson.
Construction is going very fast.
For loading structures used floating crane.
There is a pouring concrete.
There is very little time left before the launch of the harbor. Very soon, the first diesel-electric submarine will come here. You will learn about it from News.
