    Russian Defense Ministry Orders $90M Tanker

    MOSCOW, September 4 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Defense Ministry has announced a tender for the delivery of a fuel tanker with a maximum contract price of 3.08 billion rubles ($90 million).

    The Project 23130 medium-sized tanker will be designed to store and transport fuel as well as dry cargo, and provide support to surface ships and submarines in peace time and in wartime, the Defense Ministry’s procurements arm said in a press release.

    The tanker should be 130 meters long, 21 meters wide and have a displacement of 14,000 tons. It should have a range of no less than 8,000 nautical miles, a cruising capacity of 60 days before refueling and be operable by a crew of 24.

    The tanker is to be delivered before October 2016. Bids will be accepted by September 24.

    And the first ship has been laid... Very Happy 

    Nevsky Shipyard laid the keel of the medium-sized sea tanker “Academician Pashin” and launched the dry cargo vessel “NEVA-LEADER 8”

    Two solemn ceremonies have been held at one day. Nevsky Shipyard decided to test such unusual mode to report on Customers. On April 26th, 2014, two ceremonies took place at the Shipyard: the keel-laying of the medium-sized sea tanker “Academician Pashin” of 23130 project and the launching of the dry cargo vessel “NEVA-LEADER 8” of RSD49 project.

    Solemn ceremony of the sea tanker keel-laying took place in the covered shed.

    There was a traditional christening of the base section of the tanker during the ceremony. After that honourable guests secured the Keel-Laying Board to the base section.

    The construction of the ship is being carried out in accordance with the State Contract for the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation. The project is developed by Spetssudoproect, JSC.

    Main data:

    Length overall – 130 m
    Breadth overall – about 21 m
    Draught overall – about 7,0 m
    Deadweight at draught 7,0 m – about 9000 t
    Maximum speed – 16 knots
    Endurance – 60 days
    Ship’s crew – 24 persons
    Sailing area – unlimited in accordance with ship’s class according to the rules of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping

    Under the signed State Contract the tanker is to be delivered in the end of 2016.

    and... Nevsky Shipyard started the sea tanker construction on 19th Feb 2014.

    According to Nevsky Shipyard, the new class of tanker will be capable of carrying
    » 3,000 tons of fuel oil
    » 2,500 tons of diesel fuel
    » 500 tons of aviation fuel
    » 150 tons of lubricating oil
    » 1,000 tons of fresh water to
    » 100 tons of food and spare parts

    The future Academician Pashin will be capable to transfer both dry and liquid cargoes on two ships simultaneously while underway at sea. In addition, the tanker may transfer dry cargo by air by helicopter.

    Minesweepers, other Auxilliary/small surface vessels, and new naval innovations.

    Post  Mike E on Mon Sep 15, 2014 6:00 am

    I figured that the Navy section needed a thread on smaller vessels and innovations not typically covered in the "News" thread. 

    Great topics include the rather overlooked Alexandrit, project 10750e etc. If you'd like, the Ivan Gren and other landing ships could be talked about here. As for innovations, new composites used for hulls (like the Alexandrit) of smaller ships etc should be mentioned.

    Let's start this thread off with a question.

    Does anybody know more about the vacuum-infused fiberglass body of the Alexandrit? It is said to have been shaped (whatever that means) in only a day and a half, which is said to be a world record.

    I just thought of a great, rather unknown topic that *could* have a huge influence on the Russian navy in the future... Forged carbon fiber! If you don't know what it is, forged CF is a mixture of carbon fibers held together via a resin. Unlike typical "fibers", it isn't woven, and it is instead "baked" together with the help of the resin and is "forged" (stamped) to the desired shape. This allows it to be easily produced in large quantities at a low cost, something regular woven CF can't claim... In fact, the tub of a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento takes only 8 and 1/2 minutes to forge, imagine this technology on ships! Back to the topic, forged CF is 60% lighter than steel while being 600% percent stiffer! Not only that, but it should be stronger per amount of weight than Titanium, which is huge (if you can't tell already, I'm hyped about this stuff)! Keels could be *produced* (!) by the hour, while the rest of the hull could probably be assembled in smaller pieces within a couple of weeks. As if all of that isn't enough, the process of making forged CF produces under 1% waste, which is 50% percent less than other kinds of "fibers", fiberglass included. It can use the same paint as steel, which most composites aren't capable of... Most importantly, forging CF hulls, structures, and keels means no welding, which quickens the production process, and it also allows for less reliance on Titanium and other metals used in shipbuilding. I assume that some form of additive, either in the resin and/or carbon could be used to lighten and strengthen it even further. - Carbon nanotubes?



    This technology has the capability to reduce ship building time from years to months, while being more efficient, resourceful, and economically smart at the same time.

    Anyone ever hear of the Scorpion p. 12300? It looks like a vry caapble fast-attack craft, with an A-190-5P-10E gun, a single Kastan CIWS, and either four "Yakhont cells" (I assume they are UKSK) or eight KH-35 cells. 

    Look here:

    Two Offshore Tugs for Submarines of Type “Borey” Received by Pacific Fleet



    The team of supply vessels of the Pacific Fleet in Kamchatka adopted two offshore tugs RB-406 and RB-407 of project 16609. They will perform mooring operations for the new submarines of Project 955 type “Borey” whose arrival is expected this year, the official representative of the Pacific Fleet captain 1st Rank Roman Martovtold Tass.

    “In addition, the vessels will perform towing and canting operations in the interests of ships group of forces in the north-east of Russia,” he added.

    In total in 2014 the Pacific Fleet in Primorye received 6 tugs of different classes, and in early 2015 the fleet will receive another one – “Alexander Piskunov” of project 22030.

    Nice looking vessel but no hangar facilities for the helicopter landing spot on the bow?

    I wonder if they will use Ka-32 based helos or another type like the Ka-60 or Ka-226T or even UAV helos...

    "Harbor tests of Aleksandr Obukhov, the head ship of the new Aleksandrit minesweeper class, have started in St. Petersburg, the Navy reported. The ship, with a unique fiberglass hull, is to be accepted by the military in November.

    The 61-meter-long warship is the largest in the world to feature a monolith hull fabricated from glass-reinforced plastic compound. The material combines the low magnetic signature necessary for a minesweeper dealing with magnetic mines, lower mass compared to metal, high strength to ensure survivability and resistance to corrosion that would allow the ship to last for some 60 years.

    According to the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard, the ship manufacturer, it took only 1.5 days to produce the hull using vacuum infusion technology. Both the speed and the size were record-breaking. One-piece plastic hulls are usually made for ships less than half the size of the Aleksandr Obukhov.".

    Russian Navy to Receive Two New Surveying Vessels in 2015

    The boats will be equipped with cutting-edge navigation and hydro-graphic systems capable of a high-precision underwater cover photography.

    Two large surveying boats of the 19920 project will be delivered to the Russian Naval Forces in 2015, spokesperson for the Defense Ministry Igor Dygalo said Friday.

    "In 2015, industrial plants will deliver two large surveying boats of the 19920 project to hydro-graphic centers of the Baltic Fleet and the Pacific Fleet of the Russian navy. Each of the boats has a displacement of 320 tons, and an operation range of 1,500 miles," the statement cites Sergei Travin, head of the Navigation Command of the Russian navy.

    According to him, the boats will be equipped with cutting-edge navigation and hydro-graphic systems capable of a high-precision underwater cover photography. The equipment will also allow handling navigation systems, transporting personnel, food supplies and lighthouse fuel to unimproved shores.

    He added that in 2015, a repair program is planned for a total of 117 surveying boats which will contribute to the further exploration of Russia’s territorial waters and other water areas of the global oceans.
