 Russian aircraft carrier deck was smashed 20 square meter big hole factory side: insignificant.


Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, which was repaired on floating dock.

Liu Yupeng, a special correspondent for the Global Times, said that the only Russian Navy carrier, the Kuznetsov, which is being repaired in Mormansk, was damaged by an accident. In the early morning of Oct. 30, local time, the floating dock PD-50, which was maintaining the carrier Kuznetsov, sank suddenly at the 82nd Ship Maintenance Plant in Mormansk. In the accident, a tower crane hit the deck of the aircraft carrier, causing damage to the flight deck and part of the ship. Russian experts said after the assessment, the aircraft carrier damage is not serious, will not delay the delivery of the Navy, but the accident is still cause for concern.

Russias Tajikistan News Agency said on October 30 that the 82nd ship repair plant representative said the accident occurred after the Kuznetsov aircraft carrier completed repair operations when docked. When the workers were working in the dock suddenly suffered a power failure, the PD-50 floating dock tank was filled with sea water, resulting in the rapid sinking of the floating dock. Two of the injured in the accident have been treated and another missing person is still in search, said Gradeshev, an aircraft carrier maintenance contractor and director of the Russian Little Star Ship Maintenance Center Information Service.

Concerned about the damage to the carrier, he said two tower cranes collapsed when the floating dock sank, one falling into the sea and the other falling on the carrier deck. Rahmanov, president of the Russian Federation Shipbuilding Group, also said that the tower crane fell from 15 meters high, damaged the carriers deck and hull, fortunately did not damage the carriers important equipment. The scale of the damage caused by the accident is being evaluated. Although the accident caused some damage to the aircraft carrier, the maintenance time of the aircraft carrier would not be prolonged. Rahmanov also revealed that when the tower crane fell, it left a 4 *5 m hole in the aircraft carrier deck, but belonged to a structure that could be quickly repaired, so the damage was negligible and would not threaten the timely completion of the maintenance work of the aircraft carrier. The damage area is expected to be repaired within a week and a half, and no large amount of money is needed.

Experts from the Little Star Ship Maintenance Center have also preliminarily determined that the degree of damage to the aircraft carrier will not affect its maintenance period, related work will continue as planned, and the aircraft carrier will be delivered to the Russian Navy by 221. Previously, the carrier had basically completed the maintenance work in floating dock, after the accident, Kuznetsov has been towed to the 35 repair plant berth to continue maintenance. The accidents PD-50 is one of the worlds largest floating docks, capable of repairing 80,000-ton ships, and one of the few Russian floating docks capable of repairing the Kuznetsov. Russias new network 30, recalled, Kuznetsov is the only Russian Navy aircraft carrier in active service, the ship can carry 50 MiG-29, Su-33 carrier aircraft and Ka-52K, Ka-27, Ka-29 helicopters. In 2016, the aircraft carrier went to the Mediterranean to participate in the Syria military operation. Because of the power system problem, the West calls it one of the worst carriers in the world. Since September last year, the Kuznetsov has been in dock for repairs, which cost 40 billion rubles and will last until the end of 2020. The ships electromechanical components, including the main propulsion system, will be repaired and the boilers replaced, and the carrier-based aircraft takeoff and landing system will be modernized and upgraded.
