The governor of Nikolayevshchina Alexey Garkusha on today's a press - conferences dispelled hearings that the fighting ship of a class the corvette developed by the Nikolaev state enterprise "Issledovatelsko — the Design Center of Shipbuilding" will be under construction on Nikolaevsk the Black Sea shipbuilding plant. Also I expressed the position that is work for plant of 61 Communards.
- The final decision isn't made. But, probably, the state has to worry about the children, and the plant of 61 Communards is the state enterprise, project works were carried out just under technologies and capacities 61-го plant. From the point of view of the state, it would be logical if it can't help to resolve that set problems which are at this plant then to place the order, and thus to level somewhat influence of negative factors which there developed, - Alexey Garkusha spoke.
Reference: The Ukrainian corvette will have displacement about 2500 tons. Autonomy of swimming - 30 days, the ship will be able to put out without refueling from Sevastopol to Mediterranean to sea and after performance of tasks to return. The corvette will be able to carry out at the same time 10 times more tasks, than existing domestic and many foreign analogs.
Among potential partners in cooperation the French Thales and DCNS, the Italian Breda which as it is supposed, can act as suppliers of arms for the new Ukrainian military ship (in Ukraine the ship arms aren't made) were called.
In Europe one similar corvette costs from 300 to 340 million euro, Ukrainian has to be cheaper.
Designers of the state center over the project worked about three years.
