It should be recalled that the original corvettes of the 20385 project were planned to be equipped with German MTU engines, but sanctions intervened in the implementation of the plans. As a result, it was decided to proceed to the process of import substitution. In this case, the work on import substitution was entrusted to the Kolomna Plant, which created power plants with an 7500 kW power each, while the MTU power plant provides less power.
The general designer of the Kolomna plant reports that this is the first experience in creating engines of such power for fleet in modern Russia.
For reference: the corvette "Gremyaschy" was laid at the shipyard "Severnaya Verf" in February 2012. The project 20385 only two corvettes. Bookmark the second - "Agile" - was made in 2013 year.
