Polish minesweeper Kormoran went on sea trials

28
On Wednesday, the factory trials of the head minesweeper Kormoran, built by the shipyard Remontowa Shipbuilding (Gdansk) for the Polish Navy, began, the blog reports bmpd.




“Project 258 is a long-term Polish program fleet to create a new generation minesweeper, begun back in the 1980s. The first version of the project (257) under the Kormoran code was completed in 1999, but was canceled by construction for financial and technical reasons in 2002. In its current guise, a program like Kormoran II was reanimated in 2007. Since 2011, the design of the ship was carried out jointly by the Centrum Techniki Morskiej (CTM) design bureau and the Remontowa Shipbuilding, their consortium received in September 2013 the Polish Ministry of Defense contract for the construction of the main minesweeper (with two more options) for a total value of 1,2 billion zlotys (about $ 320 million), ”the publication said.



The ship was launched in April 2015. Construction of optional minesweepers, which should be commissioned in 2019 and 2022. pending pending receipt of test results.

Help bmpd: “Kormoran has a body of non-magnetic steel, the full displacement of 850 tons. The length of the ship 58 m, width 10,3 m, draft 2,7 m. Crew 44-45 people. Power plant - two diesel engines MTU 8V 396 TE74L with power 1360 hp The speed of full speed 15 knots, cruising range at full speed 2500 miles.

Anti-mine weapons should include the SCOT-M integrated anti-mine action system developed by the STM center, SHK-101 / T underhole radar HAS and Orka self-propelled variable-depth HAS, as well as a number of Saab Double Eagle Mk III remote-controlled submersibles, sea-bottom mapping and submersible search devices of the Kongsberg Maritime Hugin 1000MR facilities and the Morswin modular underwater mine-warning devices developed jointly by the STM and the Gdansk University of Technology (using disposable mini-apparatus to destroy mines s Gluptak) ".

          But somehow it’s not disposed to praise the Pszekov coffin. Especially after numerous statements by their defense ministry. Or are you in agreement with their politics - the politics of war?

            The ship, although the "long-term construction" is not just good, judging by the equipment with anti-mine weapons and search equipment - good, but I am NOT happy about it! Our anti-mine forces in the Baltic leave much to be desired, "Yahonts" are still in service - ships that appeared in the mid-70s.

    But for our fleet of minesweepers that are basic, that there are not enough marine ones. The hull material is somewhat surprising, our 40-year-old BTs were made from composite.

    Non-magnetic steel - is it austenitic, stainless, or what? So she is too soft for ships. Ours has long been building from composite so that magnetic mines do not react. Yes, and a good composite for ship hulls.

      The issue of choosing the material of the ship’s hull should be adopted by April-May 2008. Currently, the German company Larsen, which produces low-magnetic steel for all ships and submarines of the German Navy, as well as the French-Spanish consortium DCNS-Navantia and the British BAe Systems, have declared their interest in the project. The latter two suggest the use of composite materials.
      So they chose the Germans.

      so as not to get smart, here's to you: (Happy Metallurgist Day by the way ...)
      The types of steels of the most common austenitic group are indicated by an additional number that indicates the chemical composition and applicability within this group:
      A2 - non-toxic, non-magnetic, non-hardenable, corrosion-resistant steel. Easy to weld and does not become brittle. May exhibit magnetic properties as a result of machining (washers and some types of screws). The most common group of stainless steels. Fasteners and products from A2 steel are not suitable for use in acids and environments containing chlorine (for example, in pools and salt water). Suitable for temperatures up to -200 C. The closest analogue is AISI 304 and AISI 304L with even lower carbon content.
      A3 - has similar properties as A2 steel and is additionally stabilized by titanium, niobium or tantalum. This improves its corrosion resistance at high temperatures.
      A4 - similar to A2 steel, but with the addition of 2-3% molybdenum. This makes it significantly more able to resist corrosion and acid. A4 fasteners and rigging products are recommended for use in shipbuilding. Suitable for temperatures up to -60 ° C. The closest analogue is AISI 316 and AISI 316L with low carbon content.
      A5 -
      1.4301 has the properties of A4 steels and is additionally stabilized with titanium, niobium or tantalum like A3, but with a different percentage of alloying additives. It also increases its resistance to high tamper
      AISI
      Characteristics
      Application examples
      A2
      304
      Low carbon steel, austenitic non-hardenable, corrosion resistant, non-magnetic under conditions of weak magnetization (if it has been cold worked). Easy to weld, resistant to intergranular corrosion.
      1.4306
      oh, chemical, textile, oil, pharmaceutical, paper industry; It is also used in shipbuilding.
      1.4401
      316
      Non-hardenable austenitic steel, the presence of molybdenum (Mo) makes it especially resistant to corrosion. Also, the technical properties of this steel at high temperatures are much better than that of similar molybdenum-free steels.
      Chemical equipment subjected to particularly severe influences, a tool that comes into contact with sea water and the atmosphere, equipment for the development of photographic film, boiler shells, food processing plants, waste oil containers for coke oven plants.
      1.4404
      316L
      Steel similar to AISI 316, austenitic non-hardenable, with a very low carbon content, is particularly suitable for the manufacture of welded structures. It has high resistance to intergranular corrosion and is used at temperatures up to 450 ° C. The chemical composition differs from 316 in almost half the lower carbon content.
      It finds the same applications as AISI 316 for the manufacture of welded structures where high resistance to corrosion is required. Particularly suitable for the production of food products and ingredients (mayonnaise, chocolate, etc.)
      A5
      1.4571
      316Ti
      The presence of titanium (Ti), five times the carbon content C, provides a stabilizing effect in relation to the deposition of chromium carbides (Cr) on the surface of the crystals. Titanium (Ti), in fact, forms carbides with carbon, which are well distributed and stabilized inside the crystal. It has increased resistance to intergranular corrosion.

    On September 23, 2013, two state contracts were signed in Gdynia - one for the construction of the new generation Kormoran 2 project minesweeper for the Polish Navy for the Polish Navy (with an option for two more ships), and the second for completion on a simplified project as a long-suffering patrol ship Corvette Slazak Gawron II. The signing of the agreements was attended by the Prime Minister of Poland Donald Tusk and Minister of Defense Tomasz Semonyak.
    The minesweepers of the Polish project Kormoran 2 are being built by a consortium of Remontowa Shipbuilding (lead contractor) and Stoczni Marynarki Wojennej, and the O институтаrodek Badawczo-Rozwojowy Centrum Techniki Morskiej design institute.
    The minesweeper of the Kormoran 2 project must have an ice-class steel hull, a total displacement of 850 tons, a length of 58 meters, a width of 10,3 meters, a two-shaft diesel power plant with a capacity of 2000 kW and low-speed electric propulsion, a full speed of at least 15 knots and a cruising range of less than 2500 miles. The crew of 45 people with the ability to accommodate seven combat swimmers. The armament of the ship should be modern means of search and destruction of mines at the ship's course (including remote-controlled underwater vehicles and an armor-mounted GAS) and an automated mine action control system, as well as one 23-mm twin Wrobel artillery mount and man-portable air defense systems. The Wrobel gun mount is to be replaced in the future with the KDA 35 mm single-barreled naval artillery system being developed in Poland.
    The construction process of the new minesweeper started in April 2014. This project is being implemented as part of the Polish Armed Forces modernization program.
    On September 4, 2015, a gala ceremony was launched at the shipyard in Gdansk for launching the prototype of the new Polish-made minesweeper Cormoran II, designed to search for and disarm sea mines in the waters of the Baltic Sea.
    Speaking at the ceremony, Prime Minister of Poland Eva Kopacz expressed confidence that “Cormoran II” “will undoubtedly strengthen the safety of navigation on sea routes and landfills.”
    According to her, in the next 10 years, the government intends to allocate about 16 billion zlotys ($ 4 billion) for the modernization of the Navy.
    After launching, engineers will begin installation of all ship systems. The start of sea trials is scheduled for March next year. In November 2016, the minesweeper is planned to be transferred to the country's Navy. By 2019 and 2022, the fleet should be replenished with two more such ships.
    CHARACTERISTICS

    Full displacement, t 850
    Length, m 58 - 60
    Width, m 10,0 - 10,3
    Main power plant: 2000 kW twin-shaft diesel engine with electric propulsion at low speeds

    The article is good, but I put a "-", let the author not be offended - for the state it is insulting! In case of a complication of the situation, the supply of the enclave will be possible only by sea, and our anti-mine forces in the Baltic are very weak, to put it mildly.
