The world's largest floating dock, a new shipyard and a domestic engine: Russia's new achievements in shipbuilding

Recently, the close attention of most of our fellow citizens has been riveted to geopolitical "turbulence", which leaves virtually unnoticed what is really important for Russia news.

In particular, last week the world's largest and Russia's largest floating dock PD-100 arrived at the port of Vladivostok. "Giant" has a length of 351 meters and 92000 tons of displacement. PD-100 was created in China by order of our country. It is reported that in the near future it will go to the Zvezda shipbuilding complex and will significantly expand the production capacity of the latter.

By the way, about the power. According to the world media, by the time the “price ceiling” for Russian oil was introduced, our country had managed to form the so-called “shadow fleet”, buying up more than a hundred tankers around the world to supply energy resources to states that did not join the sanctions.

At the same time, the aforementioned vessels are not new and should be decommissioned in a few years.

Consequently, Russia urgently needs to increase the production of its tankers. But how to do it if our shipyards are already loaded for several years ahead?

To solve this problem, Rosatom plans to build a new shipyard in Kronstadt, which will not be inferior (perhaps even surpass) Zvezda in terms of capacity. The design of the object is already ready. The new shipbuilding complex will specialize in the production of ships with a nuclear power plant, floating power units and ice-class ships.

Finally, there is good news in the field of engine building. Previously сообщалосьthat the newest frigate "Admiral Golovko" entered the factory tests with a completely domestic power plant.

This week it became known that the combat ship has successfully passed the performance testing of all components, mechanisms and systems.

      This is no longer a dock, but a pile of scrap metal. He, already when he was sinking, was scrap metal.

        The floating dock is reinforced concrete plus marine steel. The term for reinforced concrete is more than 100 years. PD-50 drowned efficient managers, on-board diesel generators, 4 pcs. liquidated along with the staff. When the shore electricity was turned off, all controls and pumps stopped and the PD-50 dock slowly sank to the bottom. The cruiser Peter the Great miraculously remained afloat, lucky.

            Do not be discouraged. Iosif Vissarionych - (eternal memory to him) endured his thieving comrades-in-arms until the age of 37. There will also be a GDP of 37 for the current "comrades-in-arms". There are some signs.

              It turns out that Stalin's patience ran out when there was no war yet. And with Putin, even during the war, liberal methods are invincible.

    We need at least two more shipyards. I don't understand, but what did they do for 20 years?

    For the third month now, the shipyards have not paid their husband a salary, they only give advance payments, and they still want to build. You pay your workers. In the contracting companies at the Northern shipyards for October, November and December, they cannot pay in any way. Guys take out loans to buy groceries

    Shipyards are shipyards, but Russia does not have a powerful commercial marine engine. For military ships (frigates) there is, but for large gas carriers, tankers and container ships there is none.

      And the same cannot be said that they have been made for centuries - the prototype M55R was sent for testing in 2017.
      On 28.11.2022/22350/XNUMX, literally just now, the frigate "Admiral Golovko" of project XNUMX began factory sea trials with these engines ...

    The cruiser "Admiral Nakhimov" has been under repair since 1999. So what? It's normal!
