“Perhaps the most difficult transfer order, the BDK Ivan Gren, came very close to one of the most important stages of construction - at the end of April, he will begin conducting factory running trials,” said Leonov.
According to him, now the plant is “preparing the ship for transfer to the port of Baltiysk, from there the Ivan Gren will make outlets to sea as part of the factory trials”.
“It’s not a secret for anyone that this ship is complex and many questions arise to the designer and suppliers,” the chief builder said. The last problem was associated with diesel generators from the Ural diesel engine plant.
In turn, project manager Andrei Parfyonov said that "the mooring test program of the ship can be completed by mid-April, if all the measures planned are implemented and force majeure does not happen."
It is assumed that "Ivan Gren" will be transferred the fleet in 2016 city
