At SNSZ, the composite hull of the Anatoly Shlemov ship was removed from the matrix
On November 2, specialists from the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) successfully completed the process of extracting the composite hull of the Anatoly Shlemov mine defense ship (PMO) of project 12700 from the matrix.
"Anatoly Shlemov" is the seventh ship in the line of Project 12700 "Alexandrite", being built at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard. The groundbreaking ceremony for Anatoly Shlemov took place on 12 July 2019. By the order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, the sea minesweeper was given the current name "Anatoly Shlemov" in honor of the honored shipbuilder, Vice Admiral Anatoly Fedorovich Shlemov. The launch of the ship is scheduled for the first half of 2021.
Project 12700 “Alexandrite” was developed by the Central Marine Design Bureau “Almaz” (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) for the Russian Navy. These ships belong to a new generation of mine-sweeping forces and are designed to combat sea mines, which the new PMO ships can detect both in the water of sea areas and in sea soil without entering the danger zone. To combat mines, ships can use various types of trawls, as well as remote-controlled and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles.
During the construction of these ships at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard, the latest Russian technologies are used, which have no analogues in the world shipbuilding. The ships of this project have a unique, the worlds largest hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion. The mass of such a case is much lower compared to a metal one. This significantly increases its strength. Such a case is not afraid of corrosion, and the service life, subject to operating standards, is unlimited. In addition to high strength and low weight, the advantages of the composite hull include its “non-magnetic”, which ensures greater survivability of the ship when searching for mines.
According to the plans of the Main Command of the Russian Navy, the ships of the new generation of PMO in the short term will form the basis of the mine-sweeping forces of the fleets of the Russian Navy, significantly increasing the efficiency of mission performance. snsz.ru
