“Today, November 26, at 12.00 in St. Petersburg at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard, the next serial mine defense ship of project 12700 Anatoly Shlemov will be launched. The ship will replenish the mine-sweeping forces of the Pacific Fleet in the coming 2022, after planned outfitting work and all stages of testing, “- said the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, “In 2022, the serial construction of mine defense ships of project 12700 at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard will continue in the interests of equipping them with the mine-sweeping component of all fleets of the Russian Navy. These ships have already in practice confirmed their effectiveness in a number of characteristics. The uniqueness of the hull of these ships and the corresponding armament allows them to adequately fulfill the tasks assigned to them for their intended purpose “

Earlier, on November 11, shipbuilders of the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) removed the mine defense ship (PMO) of project 12700 “Anatoly Shlemov” from the workshop.

The shipyard specialists have completed work on the formation of the hull and part of the superstructure of the ship, their saturation with systems and mechanisms. Further outfitting work will be carried out outside the workshop. The plant workers will have to complete the formation of the minesweeper’s superstructure, carry out the installation of the tower-mast device, antenna equipment and general ship systems.

The PMO ship Anatoly Shlemov was laid down in July 2019. It became the seventh ship in the Project 12700 line, which is being built by the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard by order of the Russian Navy. The ship is named in honor of the honored shipbuilder who worked in various positions in the Main Directorate of Shipbuilding of the Navy, as well as the Director of the Department of State Defense Order of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Vice Admiral Anatoly Fedorovich Shlemov.

Project 12700 was developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) for the Russian Navy. These ships belong to a new generation of mine-sweeping forces and are designed to combat sea mines, which the new PMO ships can detect both in the water of sea areas and in sea soil, without entering the danger zone. To combat mines, ships can use various types of trawls, as well as remote-controlled and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles.

When building such ships at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard, the latest Russian technologies are used, which have no analogues in the world shipbuilding. The ships of this project have a unique, the world’s largest hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion. The mass of such a case is significantly lower than that of a metal one, while its strength is significantly increased. The body is not afraid of corrosion, and the service life, subject to operating standards, is unlimited.
