Beach named after a torpedo plant

25
The fate of the Theodosia (Ordzhonikidze village) of the Gidropribor plant remains in question. Last spring, when after the performance of the Military-Industrial Courier (Torpedo Outpost in the Crimea), the company was included in the republican ownership, it seemed that production would finally get better, a unique experience would be in demand, the traditions would be continued. However, last week an alarming letter came from Feodosia.
The decision to restore the plant is being sabotaged. The historian Oleg Olkhovatsky, the laureate of the “Shield and Sword of the Fatherland” award concerned with this, appeals directly to the first persons of the country. It turns out that the factory workers have no more confidence in anyone.

Dear leaders of the Russian Federation!

The main reason for the appeal to you was the deep concern for the further fate of the oldest torpedo plant in Russia (now GUP RK “Dvuyakornaya Bay”, Ordzhonikidze, Republic of Crimea). As a military historian, winner of the literary award "Shield and Sword of the Fatherland" 2015, for the book "The Secret история of the Gidropribor plant, volume I, researching the plant’s past for decades, I want to draw your attention to the following facts.

Beach named after a torpedo plant
The opening of the Mine Sighting Station in Dvuyakornaya Bay near Feodosia took place on April 8 (March 26 old style) 1914, in the presence of Vice-Admiral P.P. Muravyev, Head of the General Directorate of Shipbuilding, and members of the management board of the G. A. Lessner. With the beginning of the First World War, the plant not only did not stop its work, but also continued the construction of workshops for the production of torpedoes.

In the years of the Civil War and intervention, despite all the difficulties and the complete absence of normal management, financing and supply, factory buildings and basic equipment were preserved by the workers and employees of the plant and mothballed. What characterizes the labor collective to the highest degree. It was already in the years of the Soviet government that the basis for the preparation of the Feodosia Sighting Station to begin the shooting of the 1927 in November was to begin. By 1941, a powerful research and development sector was created, a reinforced concrete protective pier, magnificent workshops, residential buildings for workers and employees were built. The plant has become the main scientific test complex torpedo weapons in USSR. The number of employees reached 1790 people. It produced a serial adjustment of the latest types of torpedo weapons.

During World War II, the plant’s equipment was partially dismantled and removed. Before fleeing from the Crimea, the German invaders undermined a huge amount of ammunition stored in the shops of the plant, with the result that most of the production areas and housing stock was completely destroyed.

Recovery lasted almost three years. Our fathers and grandfathers, sparing no effort, practically without equipment, which simply was not in the ravaged country at that time, overcoming enormous difficulties and hardships, restored the plant. And in March 1948, he joined the number of acting. From 1949 to 1989, the plant continued to grow continuously. New types of torpedo weapons were mastered, experimental work was carried out, housing, kindergartens and medical institutions were built.

After the collapse of the USSR, hard times came again for the factory workers - funding was completely stopped, the mass dismissal of highly skilled specialists and the destruction of workshops began. In independent Ukraine, the plant and its employees were not needed by anyone. The team made incredible efforts to somehow survive and keep it created by decades of hard work. And it was possible despite the complete indifference of the authorities, practically without a penny of money and with frequent changes of the owners of the enterprise.

The exciting events of spring 2014 of the year - reunification with Russia - gave the surviving team great hope for the restoration of the native enterprise. The management of the Bay of Dvuyakornaya JSC made a titanic effort to restore production and test torpedoes. Documents were drawn up, numerous visits to Simferopol, Moscow were made to meet with responsible leaders. Two years of hard work, overcoming the secret opposition of some officials, and finally the matter began to get off the ground. It would seem that a little more and the gates of the plant will open wide for the stream of factory workers, going to restore the former glory and pride of the domestic military-industrial complex. But no - someone invisible again blocks all the efforts and undertakings of the team. It is here that we need the help of the country's leadership in overcoming the latest difficulties: help speed up the transfer of the Dvuyakornaya Bay to the federal property.

I am currently working on the second volume of The Secret History of the Gidropribor Plant. This is the period from 1950 to the present.

It seems to me that the book should not have bitter concluding lines like “it turned out that the unique enterprise of the State Unitary Enterprise of the Republic of Kazakhstan“ Dvuyakornaya Bay ”is absolutely not needed by either Russia or its military-industrial complex. The plant is closed, completely ruined and transferred to the organization of the next private den for modern nouveau riche, without honor and conscience, but with a lot of money. There are more than enough such hotel and entertainment establishments in the Crimea, and the torpedo factory was the only one ”.

So do not allow irresponsible and indifferent officials to prevent the team from actually restoring the plant to perpetuate the memory of our ancestors, relatives and friends, who, overcoming all obstacles, preserved and recreated the company in the most difficult post-revolutionary and post-war years.

I hope that the end of the second volume will be the following words: “The Feodosia plant“ Gidropribor ”as part of the concern“ Sea underwater weapon - “Gidropribor” is again in the ranks of the operating enterprises. We are proud of it. ”

    All the same, with regard to the military-industrial complex, the president himself needs to monitor the restoration and development of factories directly related to the defense industry, apparently in his circle, not all assistants conscientiously carry out their work.

      You see, Victor, there is a Constitution of the Russian Federation where the functions of all levels of government are clearly spelled out. And what you write about is included in the functional responsibilities of the DAMA government. But since the aforementioned DAM is a mere insignificance, however, like all the NUCLEAR government, a situation arises about which you are writing. But then let me say that the Constitution is not respected in our country? Probably not, most likely the GDP understands the insignificance of the government, but then the question arises, why does this whole crowd of insignificants govern the country's economy?
      I have no answer, there is only disgust for my government, and no matter how "a good tsar" his boyars are without exception G ..... And this situation cannot continue indefinitely.
      Something like a subjective opinion. hi

    Capitalism is cheaper to build a new plant (if needed) in a place convenient from an economic point of view than to restore an old one. Unfortunately, there will be no normal logistics until the bridge is completed. And from the point of view of defense, it is not advisable to place key enterprises in Crimea.

        It may not be appropriate. Not about the ass. There are good places for the shipyard there (in the Crimea). It is necessary to restore and restore. The article says that the age of specialists at the enterprise is over 60. What it says. Whether it is advisable to restore the production of torpedoes is a question for specialists, and depends on the state defense order. We are not restoring torpedo production in Kyrgyzstan. Everything based on state interests should be decided. We have little information to panic.

        Yes 100% confidence that this plant cannot be restored!

        Where does the word about the flow of factory workers come from if it is written that the enterprise is completely ruined over the last 25 years of Ukraine’s independence?

        Or all the workers for 25 years were waiting? no one retired, not dead?

        The letter is complete crap.
        An attempt to slander the state - putting pressure on patriotism. And by whom? The future leadership, which, if successful, will receive non-weak financing, which can be turned into a personal comfortable life. Sawing and sawing.

        But there is nothing but territory.
        There are no workshops.
        There is no machinery park.
        There are no workers and never will be.

        Projection and taking care of one’s own pocket, dressed in patriotic phrases.


        Key enterprises should be located in the Urals and in Eastern Siberia.
        We have experience of 1941 of the year ...
        We shouldn’t lose the mind.

      The point is not that it is cheaper for the capitalist to build a new plant, but that he doesn’t need a fucking factory. What for??? You’ll invest money, and when else will the return come from them? Maybe in ten years.
      So fate is predictable.

    Well I say, socially topical articles appear on the site for the last 2 weeks. Either the "FSB" arranges parades on "Geliki", then the torpedo factories are closed for the sake of the dough, then the boards are hung up to someone who is not clear. Not all "Urya". Order "among the elite" is still to be established and established. There would only be a desire ..

      Theodosia plant actually died in 23 years. The equipment worked for wear and tear, shots ran.
      After the plant was closed in the 1990s, many unique equipment was cut into metal, but still did not manage to pull the entire industrial complex apart. There are buildings, there are machines, there is documentation and, most importantly, there are still specialists who are ready at any time to stand up to the machine. If before the enterprise employed almost the entire population of Ordzhonikidze - about 2,5 thousand people, today - a little more than fifty.
      ...
      ... local professional professionals have already turned 60 on average, and therefore they will need young personnel who will have to be trained for more than one year right at the factory.

      And the main thing is that the Russian Federation already has Dagdizel.

        Yes, the main thing is people. And it’s already reached the point that in some design bureaus one and a half pensioners work for food .. If the plant has died .. you don’t know what to say. In St. Petersburg, most of the former design bureaus (including my landlords) rent premises. And before they worked for the defense industry! sad Yes, it seems like this all over the country .. Well, at least shipbuilders, like, don’t sit without orders, and thank God!

        I am of the same opinion. I know "Dagdizel", was born and raised in those parts. The plant worked and was renovated in the 90s. Now SPECIALISTS have to determine the need for another plant, costs, etc. First of all, of course, it is a necessity based on the interests of the defense industry.

    I hope that the end of the second volume will be the following words: “Theodosia Hydropribor Plant as part of the Marine Underwater Weapons - Hydropribor Concern is back in operation of existing enterprises. We are proud of it. ”

    Questions:

    - For 25 years, the Russian Federation somehow did without this plant?
    - Does it mean that Russia already has where to "build and test torpedoes"?

    Apparently, yes.

    And then already - issues related to the competence of those who are competent in them request

    It is possible that the plant will be restored. Perhaps not. And if not, it is not at all unambiguous that this is precisely the "machinations of the enemies."

    Somehow

          hell you're right! I am kind! And on the internet! drinks But .. take care of people - probably this should be an integral part of state policy. wink And the country has money (at least there are enough for some salaries - a reference to our conversation yesterday). The state should not only protect people, it has tasks in pursuing a balanced domestic policy.
          For the rest I agree with you. Just to clarify: "those who are in the subject" should decide without prejudice to defense capability (I hope you will also agree). Serdyukov, it seems, once "decided" that almost everything should be bought from foreigners. To produce your own, especially when half of them were plundered and "privatized" in the 90s, is more difficult and more expensive than buying foreign ones. But, well now, don't we support the factories? hi Have a good evening!
