Multipurpose tank for testing of offshore equipment to be built in Saint-Petersburg at the premises of Krylov Center
Saint-Petersburg branch of Glavgosexpertiza (Russia’s Main Department of State Expertise) has appraised and approved the project on construction of a multipurpose tank for testing of offshore equipment at the premises of Krylov State Research Center, says press center of Glavgosexpertiza.
Having studied the materials, the experts acknowledged the compliance of the project documentation and the findings of the engineering survey with technical regulations and other requirements.
According to the statement, the project will let provide conditions for comprehensive hydrodynamic testing of high priority marine facilities including vessels and equipment for the development of offshore hydrocarbon resources.
The project approved by Glavgosexpertiza foresees the construction of a two-storey building with total area of 26,292.0 m² and other related works.
The construction will be financed by the federal budget.
FSUE Krylov State Research Center is Russia’s major engineering center focused on designing and construction of ships and facilities for naval and merchant applications, marine facilities for offshore exploration and production. Krylov Center is carrying out scientific and technological activities in hydrodynamics, power engineering, acoustics, designing of naval and civil ships.
Experimental facilities of Krylov State Research Center include the world’s longest deep-water towing tank (1,324 m), shallow-water towing tank, seakeeping basin, seakeeping-maneuvering basin, circular rotating-arm basin, complex of cavitation tunnels, high-speed and ice tanks.
