“Dalzavod” brought the modernized frigate “Marshal Shaposhnikov” to the second stage of factory sea trials
The frigate “Marshal Shaposhnikov” entered the second stage of the factory sea trials. The operation of the power plant, steering gear, auxiliary mechanisms, communication, detection and navigation equipment was checked. High-speed and maneuvering tests of the ship were also carried out.
At the moment, the ship is undergoing repairs and deep modernization at JSC “Dalzavod” Ship Repair Center”. A project of this scale is being implemented for the first time in Russia. During the period of repair and modernization on the frigate “Marshal Shaposhnikov”, hull works, work with general ship systems were practically completed, modern missile and artillery weapons were installed. Thanks to the efforts of the workers of the plant, the ship also changed its appearance.
“Dalzavod” has once again demonstrated its ability to repair and modernize open ocean vessels. The reliability of the repaired equipment is confirmed by the extension of service life of the frigate “Marshal Shaposhnikov” by 10 years over the standard. It is planned that by the end of this year the ship will return to the Pacific Navy. Completion of the project will bring “Dalzavod” to a new stage of development – it will consolidate its status not only as a ship repair plant, but also as a shipbuilding plant.
The Ministry of Defense considered a similar upgrade of the Pacific Navy ships of the same series, based in Vladivostok. The next project of“Dalzavod” is modernization of ASWS (anti-submarine warfare ship)“Admiral Vinogradov”.
