On Gorodetsky ship-repairing factory the work is moving along in high gear.
Lifted on a slip steam-ship “Alexander Benua” looks as a model at an exhibition. The propelling-steering complex is being repaired and ship’s skin is also being replaced. Meanwhile they are dismantling wheels, screws and shafts.
Instead of a simple screw a vaned propulsive agent is mounted here . It is more convenient for navigators for the main reason: such maneuvering device works by button pressing in cabin at once, instead of going off in 10-15 seconds, as in steam-ships of 588 series. Besides, by steam-ships 26-37 it is more powerful.
It is interesting that on first four courts of a series the navigator could regulate the capacity of maneuvering device’s work .
Steam-ship “N.A.Nekrasov” has already visited the slip where its wheels, screws and shafts were dismantled for diagnostics and repair. Now the steam-ship is afloat again – at a factory wall. After a while the steam-ship will be lifted again on a slip in order to repair the case, and to place everything removed back. By November both steam-ships will return on wintering in the Memory of the Commune of Paris boatyard.
And the new passenger-ship “Sura” is almost ready and even painted. They plan that next year the steam-ship will start to make tourist sails.
Nearby the “Stankovich” steam-ship of 737 series is being restored, but it’s too early to speak about the results now.
“Volgoneft-40” and “Volgoneft-45”
Some vessels finish their existence here. One of these steam-ships, “Bukhara”, is being knocked down on metal.
Another cargoship “Lavrenty Novozhilov” is ready for cutting.
Soon cargo vessels will touch at this port for wintering.
