Gas turbine engines (GTE) for the last two frigates of project 22350, Admiral Golovko and Admiral Isakov are ready. This Mil.Press FlotProm was informed by a high-ranking source in the industry. According to him, these GTE are completely domestic and built on the Rybinsk "Saturn".
The power installation of the ships will be equipped with gearboxes produced by the St. Petersburg "Star". A source in the company told the journalist that the units are not yet ready, but the current leadership of the "Star" is in constant contact with the Rybinsk "Saturn". On July 28, during the ceremony of handing over the Navy of the head frigate of project 22350 Admiral Gorshkov, the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov told Mil.Press FlotProm that the GTE for the last two frigates of the series would be domestic. He also expressed confidence that these ships will be built on time.
Prior to the termination of military-technical cooperation with Ukraine, Severnaya Verf managed to obtain complete sets of energy for the main and first production ships of Project 22350. The following frigate for the series, Admiral Golovko (plant number 923), was not fully equipped. "ODK-Saturn" led the development of domestic shipboard GTE from 2014. In April 2017, the enterprise demonstrated a sample of an M90FP unit with a capacity of 20.2 MW. The declared efficiency of the turbine was 36% compared to 32% for the analog of the Ukrainian production. The first two units of Severnaya Verf are planned to be delivered by the end of 2018.
