The fate of the burnt-out corvette "Agile" has become known

In the evening of December 17 at the "Severnaya Verf" (part of the USC) in St. Petersburg happened a fire on the Provorny corvette, which has been under construction for more than eight years (project 20385). On December 20, the possible further fate of the burned-out ship became known, which was to be transferred to the Russian Navy by the end of 2022.

On December 18-19, after the end of the firefighting, Severnaya Verf specialists conducted a primary inspection of the Provorny. They came to a preliminary conclusion - the ship must be restored. The company announced this on its official website.

<…> Thanks to the mounted fire insulation between the superstructure and the deck, the hull of the ship was not damaged. The superstructure must be dismantled. There was no equipment in the superstructure. Negotiations are underway with AO SNSZ (Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant (St. Petersburg), part of the USC - ed.) On the construction of a new superstructure

- says the communique.

The company clarified that in order to prevent freezing of the water that got into the holds during the fire extinguishing, heating and electricity were turned on. About a hundred workers pumped out water, dried surfaces and cleaned the premises from the consequences of fire. The commission of representatives of Severnaya Verf and USC, which has begun work, will assess the damage caused. It is too early to talk about the causes of the fire. This commission will take several weeks to study all the circumstances and find out the reasons for the emergency.

Note that what happened cannot but affect the timing of the delivery of the ship to the fleet - they will definitely move if the final decision is made to complete the "Provorny" at the "Severnaya Verf". It should also be recalled that JSC "SNSZ" is engaged in the construction of ships and vessels from fiberglass, one of the types of polymer composite materials (PCM). Fiberglass plastics are inferior to steel in absolute values ​​of ultimate strength, but 3,5 times lighter and superior in specific strength.

    Condemn and imprison all the bosses involved in construction! This is how many times this has already happened! How much money do all these defense enterprises need to say: “Enough!” And not pump out the budget again and again. Let them restore it at their own expense!

      There is no need to engage in all this useless chatter, you need to conduct the most thorough investigation and ultimately draw the correct conclusions from this, you must finally learn how to correct your mistakes, and not hush them up, as an option - sabotage is also possible !!!

    There is already a question in the design features of these corvettes. What kind of material is used in the setup, if it burns so that all of Peter's firefighters could hardly extinguish it. Why is this material not fireproof and burns like that? And on other corvettes, if a missile or a projectile hits the setting, everything will burn out with a bright flame?

      Boris, I read that the whole point is in the absence of a fire extinguishing system. She works on an active ship, but here she was inactive. Or not mounted at all.

        The automatic fire extinguishing system must be and be in working order on the slipway or in the boathouse where the ship is being built ...
        The automatic fire extinguishing system in case of malfunction should be backed up by mobile installations, foam generators ...

      And on other corvettes, if a missile or a projectile gets into the setting, then everything will burn with a bright flame.

      It turns out - it will burn if it does not work, or if the fire extinguishing system is damaged in battle.
      A strange design principle for a battleship. What then is its combat stability?
      Maybe here too - an enemy "bookmark"? Made by agents of influence in our scientific community and research institutes

    While the restoration of "Agile" is going on, it makes sense to use the stuffing for the same type of carriers of weapons and technical equipment under construction.

    On the evening of December 17, a fire broke out at Severnaya Verf (part of the USC) in St. Petersburg on the Provorny corvette (project 20385), which has been under construction for more than eight years. On December 20, the possible further fate of the burned ship became known,

    The further fate of the director and deputies of "Severnaya Verf" for damaging the country's defense should consist of 8 years of "strict regime" ...

    In addition to delaying the construction of the corvette at the shipyard, conditions were not created for the safe conduct of hot work.
    Why did the automatic fire extinguishing system (powder, gas, foam ...) not work, which was supposed to quickly eliminate the fire?
    Instead, the fire was flooded with seawater and finally ruined the installed equipment worth billions of rubles.
    Why did the workers not use mobile fire extinguishing installations for 50-100-200 kg. which, with a huge amount of welding work, should be in abundance inside and outside the ship under construction, and were they in place in fact?
    It's good that there were no human casualties.
    Interestingly, these slovens even bothered to get insurance ...
