Specialists of the Military Construction Complex of the Russian Ministry of Defense have begun construction of a training complex for divers of the Pacific Fleet. The facility under construction is intended for training divers, units performing tasks to ensure the safety of the naval forces and other important state and military facilities.

The construction of facilities for the Pacific Fleet’s submarine forces in Kamchatka was inspected today by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Timur Ivanov as part of a working trip to the troops of the Eastern Military District.

It will be a four-storey building with a total area of ​​more than 3 thousand square meters. meters.

The second floor will house a 25-meter pool, 5 m deep. The bowl of the structure will be made of reinforced concrete, and the bathtub will be made of stainless steel. The pool is equipped with four special diving ladders to the full depth and underwater lighting.

The project also provides for a diving post, a diving equipment workshop, rooms for desalting, washing and drying equipment, a special physiologist’s office, a diving training class, a pantry for training aids, rooms for instructors, a duty officer, a weapons storage room, a cloakroom and showers.

The annex to the main building will house a helium-oxygen station, storage rooms for compressors and oxygen reserves.

The specificity of the diver’s activity makes increased demands on physical and mental endurance, the functional state of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, coordination of movements, resistance to temperature changes, and the neuropsychic state of a specialist. To restore the physical condition of divers, a stationary pressure chamber will be installed in the center, which will provide decompression and therapeutic recompression.

The new training complex is planned to be completed by the end of 2021.
