    Scientific ship for the arctic making progress.

    First thing I noticed was all the port holes... then I realised these are not supposed to be stealthy... Rolling Eyes

    That thing is hardly a ship, it is a floating scientific base that can relocate on its own, but it is semantic only.
    Quite interesting approach.

    It was the focus of lame western smear attempts by morons who couldn't be bothered to learn its function.   They claimed Russians design
    the world's ugliest ships.   Takes a certain level of retardation to make such a claim when one actually looks at the other ships Russia
    is building and has built.  

    The shape of this floating base is dictated by its function and not aesthetics.   It is designed to not get crushed by ice as it sits in the ice
    pack.   But morons will be morons and haters gonna hate.

    Kaliningrad, Russia based Baltic Shipyard Yantar (a company of United Shipbuilding Corporation) has won a competition for construction of a 7MW multifunction salvage vessel of Project MPSV06M, says the Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) referring to the State Customer Directorate.

    The results of the competition were published by the Unified Information System on 10 June 2021.

    The ship designed by Marine Engineering Bureau will be built for Marine Recue Service.

    Two ships of that design, the Beringov Proliv and the Murman, are already being operated by Marine Recue Service with one more ship under construction at Amursky shipyard.

    Yantar will build the first ship of Project MPSV06 that has underwent modernization.

    Project MPSV06M meets the 2021 RS Rules and the Polar Code. It features the enhanced capacity of the cargo crane that can now operate in stormy weather.

    Multi-purpose MPSV06M salvage icebreaker vessel has Icebreaker 6 class and unrestricted area of navigation; she has ice-breaker stem and cruiser aft end, enlarged double-tier forecastle and living quarters located fore. There are also a diesel-electric power station with ER located in the middle part of hull, two full-circle rudder propellers and bow thrusters. The helicopter landing platform is located on the fore part of ship.

    Thanks to her equipment the ship can participate in fire-fighting operations, combating oil spills, search and rescue operations, emergency towing even in extreme weather conditions while her onboard hospital facilities enable the medical treatment of people who have been saved.

    The ship will be able to perform icebreaking operations in port water areas and in freezing non-Arctic seas with ice thickness of up to 1.5 meters, provide assistance in fire combating on floating objects and coastal ones accessible from seaside, conduct investigation of sea floor and damaged objects when depth is less than 1000 meters. The ship can operate in the Northern Sea Route waters.

    Kaliningrad-based Baltic Shipbuilding Plant “Yantar” (Yantar Shipyard) was founded on July 8, 1945 on the basis of a Koenigsberg unit of German’s Schichau Werft. Yantar Shipyard specializes in building and repair of warships and civil boats. Throughout the years the Shipyard has built 160 warships and more than 500 merchant vessels. The Russian Government holds majority stake in the shipbuilding firm through Western Center of Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation.

    Quite interesting approach.

    I think it is a brilliant idea... the final images of it show it has helicopter pad, and facilities for lowering boats and submerseibles as well as well as other vehicle types for travelling on ice and snow, in a facility for large groups of scientists to work together and live together for long periods presumably in much better comfort than tents on snow and ice.

    Everything moves together, which means the chance of anything being left behind is low and presumably human body and food waste will be collected and used possibly to generate biomass that wont just be dumped on site or dropped through a hole cut in the ice.

    Power and heating should be much more efficient in such a compact insulated structure, while small expeditions out to other places could be mounted during periods of good weather that can return to endure the bad weather together in safety.

    Flying drones can be based there and cover large areas... and decent high quality equipment can be used without risk or despite being too big to carry around in a truck or helicopter.

    I would say for the scientists themselves this would offer incomparable comfort and facilities for use in outlying and remote areas... some sort of ice breaking towing vessel and perhaps even an amphibian jet aircraft could make access and crew replacement rather easy too depending on where it is operating.

    A medium sized support ship providing fresh water and food and supplies and well and fuel would be obviously sensible too... I would think it can move short distances under its own power, but is it designed to self deploy and self recover or is it towed?

    Depending on the research being done it might operate in ice sheets in the arctic or the med supporting diving operations or just in the north pacific or north atlantic looking and studying the enormous rubbish masses in both those oceans... or it could be sent all the way down to the antarctic to monitor Penguins or the rate of ice melting.

    The Marshal Rokossovsky LNG-powered automobile and railway ferry has entered sea trials. 

    The lead CNF19M project rail ferry Marshal Rokossovsky for the Ust-Luga-Baltiysk line with the Arctic category ARC4 for year-round operation on the line without an icebreaker escort was sent for sea trials on August 26, 2021.

    The customer and operator of CNF19M ferries is FSUE Rosmorport.

    Marshal Rokossovsky is the lead ferry in a series of two CNF19M vessels.The new CNF19M ferries are designed to complement the relatively old CNF05 Baltiysk and Ambal ferries currently operating on the line.

    Eco-friendly 200-meter ferry "Marshal Rokossovsky" project CNF19M has an ice class Arc4. Two twin-fuel main engines with a capacity of 6,000 kW each use liquefied natural gas or diesel fuel with a low sulfur content as fuel.

    The vessel is designed to transport Russian standard railway trains with a track width of 1520 mm, as well as other rolling cargo, including dangerous goods, and up to thirty 20-foot refcontainers.

    The ferry was laid down on October 17, 2018, and launched on August 21, 2020.

    A Russian "green" tanker of the "Aframax" type was launched from the slipway of the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex. This is the second vessel in a series of 12 large-capacity tankers with a deadweight of 114 thousand tons. The lead tanker Vladimir Monomakh was handed over to the customer in December 2020.

    This powerful new generation tanker is designed to carry oil in an unlimited navigation area. The vessel is designed in compliance with high environmental safety standards. The main and auxiliary power plants can operate on both traditional and environmentally friendly fuel - liquefied natural gas, which meets the new world environmental standards.

    The length of the vessel is 250 meters, width is 44 meters, deadweight is 114 thousand tons, speed is 14.6 knots, ice class is ICE-1A.

    The Aframax tanker was launched using the Vympel transport and transfer dock, one of the largest in Russia.

    Currently, the tanker has been towed to the outfitting quay, where the mooring stage of tests will be organized: work on checking the systems and equipment of the vessel for further preparation for sea trials and handover to the customer.

    To date, the portfolio of Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex includes 12 Aframax tankers, 10 of which are ordered by Rosnefteflot JSC (a specialized subsidiary of Rosneft Oil Company). At the moment, six Aframax tankers are being manufactured and assembled in the workshops and on the stocks of the enterprise.

    Novatek plans to build five LNG carriers a year at the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex in the Primorsky Territory. Eduard Gudkov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of PAO NOVATEK, provided such data during the Eastern Economic Forum, a PortNews correspondent reported . “The implementation of our projects in the future, in fact, creates the preconditions for five LNG carriers to leave the stocks of this shipyard in the next 15 years,” said a company representative.

    Currently, Novatek has placed an order at the plant for the construction of 15 ice-class gas carriers.

    It has nothing to do with Russia per se.
    Women are better suited for crane operators, as they have fewer issues with the labyrinth.
    In all the yards I know, a female crane operator is something usual.

    https://seanews.ru/en/2021/09/02/en-sovcomflot-novatek-and-far-eastern-shipbuilding-and-ship-repair-center-agree-to-develop-ship-repair-cluster/

    Sovcomflot, NOVATEK and Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center have signed an agreement to develop a ship repair cluster in the Russian Far East. The ceremony took place on the eve of the VI Eastern Economic Forum as part of a trilateral workshop at the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex in Primorsky Krai.

    The agreement was signed by Andrey Shishkin, CEO of FESRC and Vice President for Energy, Localisation and Innovation of Rosneft; Igor Tonkovidov, President and CEO of Sovcomflot, and Sergey Frank, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SMART LNG.

    The agreement provides for expanding the cooperation between the parties in servicing and repairing vessels and vessel equipment using the facilities of the ship repair cluster.

    The same day at Zvezda, a keel-laying ceremony was held for a new 51,000-dwt MR product carrier ordered by SCF to transport gas condensate in the Baltic under a 20-year time charter to NOVATEK. The vessel is designed to use LNG as its primary fuel. In total, SCF ordered from Zvezda three such tankers scheduled for delivery during 2022-2023.

    From the TASS report: this morning, Chinese troops consisting of 4 divisions, with the support of armored vehicles, aviation and artillery, crossed the Soviet-Chinese border, attacked a peaceful Soviet tractor engaged in harvesting in the fields. The tractor driver, who was not at a loss, suppressed the attack with a hurricane of rocket and machine gun fire, shooting down 8 planes, destroying 30 tanks and up to 1000 units of enemy manpower, after which he activated the reactor and disappeared from pursuit in near-Earth space. Currently, the well-being of the tractor crew is normal, the flight takes place according to the specified program. The tractor crew will be presented to the government awards.

    In turn, the chairman of the Guards thrice Red Banner assault state farm "Path to Victory", Lieutenant General Ustinov said that in the event of a repeat of such incidents, the Soviet Union reserves the right to use the entire range of agricultural machinery, including a strategic combine harvester.

    Prices are crazy, worldwide.
    Tons of tenders are invalid because the budget allocation does not last the market reality.
    Russia is not an external universe, they drive along the same line.
    We just need to calm down, it will get stabilized.
    Sooner or later, and we still don't know the levels.
    Lumber was the world's best speculative asset for the last quarter, hiked a 300% if I am not mistaken, and dumped already to the "usual" level.
