    Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard lays down yet another minesweeper of Project 12700

    On 12 July 2019, Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard (a company of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) laid down yet another minesweeper of Project 12700 (Aleksandrit) named Anatoly Shlemov, the shipyard says in a press release.

    The ship will be the seventh in the series of 12700 minesweepers laid down by Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard

    The ceremony was attended by Yury Borisov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation,  Defence Industry Complex; Igor Mukhametshin, Deputy Commander of RF Navy; Aleksandr Beglov, Acting Governor of Saint-Petersburg; Aleksey Rakhmanov, President of United Shipbuilding Corporation; representatives of Almaz Central Design Bureau; personnel and veterans of the shipyard. 

    This mine countermeasures vessel of Project 12700 was designed by Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau. The ship of the new generation features the most advanced technology and naval architecture and marine engineering, the world's largest monolithic hull of fiber-glass plastic made by the vacuum infusion method. Monolithic hulls fabricated from glass-reinforced plastic feature higher strength and survivability compared to steel hulls.  They also have lower mass and longer life cycle (over 30 years). 

    The Alexandr Obukhov, lead ship of Project 12700 series, was delivered to the customer in December 2016. The Ivan Antonov, the first serial ship, joined the fleet in the end of 2019. The third one named the Vladimir Yemelyanov was launched on 30 April 2019 and is under outfitting now. Apart from newly laid down ship named the Anatoly Shlemov, three more minesweepers, including the Georgy Kurbatov, the Yakov Belyayev and the Peotr Ilyichev, are under construction at the shipyard.

    Key characteristics: displacement - 890 t, length – 62 m, breadth – 10 m, speed at full displacement – 16 knots, crew – 44. The ship features high maneuverability and offers comfortable accommodation of the crew.

    Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard JSC, a part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, was set up in 1912. The shipyard has built over 500 warships and vessels of 43 designs for the Russian Navy and foreign customers (13 countries worldwide). Currently, the shipyard builds missile boats, trawlers, passenger and work vessels for various purposes and is about to start the large-scale construction of mine warships of the new generation for the Russian Navy and foreign countries.

    Today, the shipyard is the leader of composite shipbuilding in Russia and the only plant in the country to build warships and civil vessels of 4 types of materials: composite materials, shipbuilding steel, nonmagnetic steel, aluminum and fiberglass. The shipyard has mastered the technology of building hulls of composite materials through vacuum infusion method. 

    United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC OJSC) is the largest shipbuilding company in Russia. It was set up in 2007 with 100% federal ownership. The holding comprises 40 companies and organizations (major shipbuilding and shiprepairing companies as well as leading design bureaus). Currently, USC consolidates the bulk of the domestic shipbuilding complex. The Russian market is the main focus of the state corporation though it also exports its products to 20 countries worldwide.
