In Russia, developing a vessel for lifting sunken ships

About it, few people think, but sunken in water, ships, submarines, aircraft and space satellites harm nature no less especially discussed today microplastics. The most dangerous particles were at the bottom techniques are rust and remnants of fuel - they can poison the water for hundreds of years. All this rubbish should immediately pull to the land and to this Russian vessel, developed by Krylov State Research Center as part of "Project 23570" will be used in the next few years. Information about the impending novelty published on FlotProm portal.

How many there are currently wrecks, nobody knows

Construction of the vessel will be launched in 2020 in the Murmansk region on the Kola Peninsula. Housing swimming apparatus will be made in the form of a catamaran, i.e. consist of two parallel hulls interconnected by deck. Since he will have to raise a rather large and heavy objects, body size will be 137 meters long and 36 meters wide. All this will enable the vessel to lift a load weighing up to 14 tons.

How many in Russia wrecks?

In the photo below you can see that the lifting device is located on the bottom of the ship, between the parallel cases. It is expected that with him in the coming years in Murmansk will be raised from the bottom of the sunken 2018 floating dock PD-50. Also, the floating platform will be used for the repair of subsea pipelines. In general, the work for the vessel currently abound.

In Russia, actually a lot of sunken ships, some of which are located at the bottom of the large rivers. For example, from the bottom of the Volga basin in 1998 was raised by more than 2,000 swimming facilities. It is known that at the bottom of the Volga River at the moment are 481 different ships, metal body is constantly oxidized and harmful to all underwater creatures and plants. It is hoped that one day mankind will be able to at least a little clean water depth.

The damage wrecks

Some ships lie at the bottom of seas and oceans for hundreds of years, the human race did not even know about the existence of some of them. Locate sunken objects can use the radar that scan the underwater area by means of echolocation. This method of finding lost objects under water, we talked about in the news found in Egyptian temples and sunken ships. This is interesting: French architects have proposed to build a ship-prison

On my own extremely I recommend reading material on the finding at the bottom of the Baltic Sea ship times of Christopher Columbus. As a rule, so old ships to the present day is completely eaten by the so-called "ship's worms", but that's what the ship survived much better than others. The fact that the ship has lain at the bottom of hundreds of years, in general there is nothing wrong - still before the ships were built of wood, and it is an environmentally friendly product that is easily decomposed.

Due vessels like the Russian "Project 23570", people may well clean our planet from underwater debris. Not only that, thanks to this, you can improve the purity of nature, so also actively searching for and lifting the ships to land increases the chances of finding a treasure. Very intriguing, right?
