Admiral Kuznetsov on fire!

Recommended Posts

It would seem there looks to be a major fire on the Admiral Kuznetsov in Murmansk.

 

As a former shipyard worker fire on board was something we did nt want to contemplate. I hope all the guys are safe.

Likewise, let’s hope everyone gets off safely although report of between one and three men missing doesn’t inspire hope.

" Briefly on fire at the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier.
 

 1. The fire was put out today.  Now they pump water from the compartment where the fire occurred.  In total, the fire lasted about a day.
 2. According to preliminary data, the cause of the fire was a violation of safety during welding - sparks from welding entered the compartment with fuel oil (according to other information, rags soaked in fuel oil that were not removed from the compartment), which led to a fire.
 3. During extinguishing a fire, an officer of the ship's survivability service was killed.  Poisoned by carbon monoxide.  Another victim was discovered this afternoon (before that he was considered missing).  Another 14 people were injured (mainly poisoning by combustion products, although there are injuries), one of them is in serious condition.
 4. The amount of damage caused to the ship will be determined by the state commission.  After a while, they should declare how great damage to the ship is and how it will affect plans for its repair and modernization.
 5. A criminal case has been instituted on the fact of the incident regarding a safety violation."

Despite all that has happened, the Kuznetsov is to be fully repaired and returned to service. A new dock facility is being created to dry dock her for a second time this year, with the expectation that she will return to service in 2021.

Crikey, the poor old girl is starting to become like my grandad’s old axe and chainsaw he had since he was demob during war to work in the bush felling trees and working Baignents Sawmill, to working on his farm at Dovedale and when he finally passed away in  Nelson Hospital (note he didn’t have the chainsaw or axe in the hospital).

I think the old sawmill now resides at the Pigeon Valley steam museum, as someone  tried to get grandad to teach the museum workers on how to operate the sawmill many moons ago. It is still a fantastic piece of machinery to watch in operation, but a WHS nightmare to maintain it in running order. Just like the old Russian Carrier 😊

 In service -  January 20, 1991

 Status: in the Navy - Modernization  

of course....

 

......somewhere now after these lines weep bitterly with senile tears:

...and for some reason no one writes in this case about the sawmill and the old aircraft carriers, yeppp....

 

🤔

But maybe I something don't know, maybe  after Admiral Kuznetsov Carrier next generation carrier has the ability to launch:

-strategic bomber B-52, B-1, B-2 & C-5 / C-17?

😁

- SSN "Sea Wolf" / "Los Angeles"

from deck? 😁

-strategic missile???😁

- UFO???😁

Maybe next generation carrier have solar battery engine???

Wind power engine???

....no???

😁

The Kiev and Minsk were in another era and incapable of operating modern jet fighters. At the point Kuznetsov's sister was sold to China, Russia simply didn't have the money or willpower to complete it. Kuznetsov has become a status symbol, how can the Russian Navy - a world power, not have a carrier? Until such time as Russia is able to build a replacement Kuznetsov will soldier on.......

I just find it interesting to watch the Russia struggle to maintain a capability and a Ship well pass its prime especially every time the Russians put it to sea, it’s need a tugboat in support. But you right about the Russian Ego.

"Baku",  modernized sistreship "Kiev", "Minsk" & "Novorossiysk",  now, under the India name of "Vikramadia", he is quietly laughing with this statement, when launching the MiG-29K from his deck, yeppp...

The fact that the then Russian Federation did not have money tell the former American advisers to the government of the Russian Federation convicted in the United States, the US government, for illegal enrichment in the then Russian Federation.

😁

In fact, even then and now there was money .... but ..... as an example, Putin and Sobyanin (Moscow mayor) opened an entertainment center called the “Russian Disneyland”, the construction of which cost a 1 000 000 000 (billion) $, yesterday or the day before yesterday, but on carriers not money - because "impoverished" country, yeppp.....

....therefore, if tomorrow the war the Russian Federation sends clowns, nesting dolls and Mickey-Mouse from

entertainment center called the “Russian Disneyland” instead of an aircraft carrier ....

That more correct and close to true as for my.

And what's the status?  The abandonment of the aircraft carrier will make a lot of coastal infrastructure unnecessary, starting from NITKA complexes and ending with the disbandment of aviation units, but the most important thing will not be trained pilots of carrier-based aviation, piece and very expensive goods that need to be taught and prepared for a very long time.

Most BIG ship put it to sea with  tugboat because it's not a cruise small yacht this is a BIG ship.

Forgive me for having a chuckle reading some of the comments after having seen this topic...

 

Key takeaway from both events is that maintenance in (dry)dock is more dangerous when procedures are not followed.

Suspect cost-cutting doesn't help here...
