The Vostochny launch vehicle is ready for launch!

What is the Vostochny Cosmodrome? Facts and Figures

The Vostochny launch vehicle is ready for launch!

Starting complex 

Dozens of buildings and structures were erected on the area of ​​the launch complex, exceeding 90 Ha. 2,7 km laid. Highways and 7,2 km. Railway tracks. All facilities are connected by underground communication tunnels, with a total length of more than 6 km.

Objects were built with a margin of safety capable of withstanding the most extreme impact. 

For the erection of reinforced concrete structures of the starting structure, about 160 cubic meters of concrete were laid and 000 tons of reinforcement were installed. A characteristic feature of the "start" is a high density of reinforcement. For the fire ring, a reinforced cage with curved reinforcement was developed.

Many technologically complex types of work were carried out in extreme weather conditions, which required the use of special technologies. So, in order to comply with the technology of hardening of the concrete during the concreting of the starting structure, "hot houses" were created, where the required temperature was maintained with the help of heat guns and electric heating. Because of the frosts, equipment sometimes broke down, but people worked tirelessly. The work was done around the clock ...

Technical complex 

The main facilities of the complex have been built: the assembly and testing buildings of the carrier rocket and spacecraft (MI RN and spacecraft), the filling and neutralization station and the trans-board gallery. All necessary engineering infrastructure and a fire station have been created.

Assembly and test buildings - modern industrial workshops with a total area of ​​over 39 sq. meters. A special microclimate is provided in the assembly and testing halls - temperature 000-18 C, humidity 25%. Such conditions are provided by modern heat supply, ventilation and air conditioning systems. 

Only in the ventilation units of the assembly part with an area of ​​9 sq. meters, the volume of processed air is more than 000 million cubic meters per hour.

In special premises of the technical complex on an area of ​​45 sq. meters used a special floor covering. Modern conductive (conductive) antistatic floors protect highly sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electrostatic energy.

The sexes in the RI are subject to special requirements - they must withstand the weight of the launch vehicle. For this, 8 bored piles are installed to a depth of up to 360 meters - each pair experiences a load of 40 tons.

Engineering communications and specialized systems are laid in technological canals, with a total length of 3,5 km.

About 20 units of lifting equipment have been installed in the structures of the technical complex. Including 100 ton overhead cranes, mounted at a height of 20 meters, used for unloading and assembling the launch vehicle.


KISO, Tsiolkovsky, infrastructure

The complex of instruments for measuring, collecting and processing information (KSISO) includes a unified technological module, 18 pylons on which the means of measuring, collecting and processing information are placed, an 85-meter adjustment tower, and a shelter.

In the history of modern Russia, Tsiolkovsky is the only city that has been created from scratch in recent decades. This is a modern, comfortable city in which the first houses are commissioned. The first stage of improvement has already been carried out, playgrounds for sports, a hockey pitch have been installed, houses have ramps. 

The objects of the Vostochny cosmodrome are provided with engineering communications. The networks of heat supply, water supply, electricity, ventilation, sewerage are available for use by end-users.

The energy complex created in Vostochny is capable of providing electricity to a half-million industrial city.

Spetsstroy of Russia continues work at facilities not participating in the first launch of the launch vehicle. This is a complex for storing rocket fuel components, a meteorological complex, the second stage of an industrial construction and operational base, housing facilities.
