The Amur Shipyard integrated into the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) has started the dock trials of the Project 20380 corvette Rezky (NATO reporting name: Steregushchy-class), the USC press office said.
“All shipborne systems and equipment are ready for the trials. The test stage schedule has been worked out. All mechanisms, life support and control systems have been mounted. The main switchboard has been connected with the power generators and power consumers,”
A trial crew comprising specialists from the mechanical-installation, electrical-installation, pipe and assembly ways shops, the test department, and representatives of contractors has been formed to conduct the trials and the pre-commissioning work.
The fourth Project 20380 corvette being built by the Amur Shipyard under a contract signed with the Defense Ministry left the Amur Shipyard in Komsomolsk-on-Amur on October 5. The Zeya floating dock with the corvette on board covered a distance of more than 1,000 km along the Amur River and the Strait of Tartary to the Sea of Japan to reach the Amur Shipyard’s acceptance base in late October. Work on the corvette is on schedule. The ship will be delivered to the customer in 2022.
