Admiralty Shipyards was launched on the rescue ship Igor Belousov

Tuesday, October 30, the JSC "Admiralty Shipyards" (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation — USC) launched the rescue ship "Igor Belousov" (Project 21300 "Dolphin").

The ship is named in honor of the shipbuilder, the Minister of the shipbuilding industry of the USSR in the period since 1984. to 1988., Hero of Socialist Labor I.Belousova.

Ship of 5 tons and speed of up to 15 knots intended to rescue the crews of submarines in distress, lying on the ground or are on the surface. It will be placed manned and unmanned deep-sea remotely operated underwater vehicles.

"This ship will be the element of the search-and-rescue support of the Russian Navy, a concept which is now being developed. Ship is unique and provides extensive rescue submarine. Perhaps we will evaluate the needs of the fleet in the courts of this project. But, in advance, the need is there the Northern and Pacific fleets, "- said at the launching ceremony of the Russian Navy Commander Viktor Chirkov.

The long construction period ocean-going rescue ship "Igor Belousov," driven by technical complexity of the project, said the Chief of the Navy

As told reporters Teals in the future of the Navy considers it necessary to rescue vessels were in all types of fleets Russia. "This vessel (" Igor Belousov ") of the base class, and be sure all the ships will be the same," — he said

The first phase of testing will take place in the Baltic, then the Northern Fleet and then in the deep Atlantic.

Work on the creation of rescue ship of a new generation of ocean-deployed in early 2003 CMDB "Diamond", ready to engineering design is presented and approved by the Ministry of Defence at the end of 2004.

The basis for the development of modern deep-sea rescue vessel with equipment was the death of the nuclear submarine "Kursk" in August 2000, when it became a crisis situation existing emergency service of the Navy of Russia.

In the MoD announced a tender for the construction of the vessel of 21,300 was preferred to "Admiralty Shipyards" in the boathouse which 24 December 2005 laid "Igor Belousov."

Construction of the order was carried out with significant interruptions due to irregular financing and delay the development of the main rescue vessel weapons — deep diving complex GVK-450. The new contract for the completion of rescue project "Dolphin" was signed between the Ministry of Defense and the "Admiralty Shipyards" in November 2011 and installed ready-term transfer of the vessel to the customer in 2014.

At the moment, the readiness of the vessel is 40%. Part of the superstructure and the basic safety equipment — a deep-water rescue complex DIVEX delivery of "Tetispro", a number of other structures and systems will be mounted on the vessel afloat.

At the same time the shipyards built deep-water rescue vehicle project 18271 "Bester-1" with a working depth of the dive more than 700 meters, whose support would be "Igor Belousov."

The case is made of high strength aluminum alloy, developed at the Central Research Institute of Structural Materials "Prometheus".

As it became quadrupeds, deep-sea rescue vehicle project 18271 "Bester-1" is getting ready for mooring trials.
