Concreting of the plate covering the block "A" of the launch facility of the Soyuz-2 booster rocket of the Vostochny space center is over
Despite the harsh weather conditions, concrete paving at the launch facility of the Vostochny cosmodrome is being carried out in accordance with the established schedule. As reported by the Main Directorate of Spetsstroy of Russia for the territory of the Far Eastern Federal District, at the moment, concreting of the cover plate of Block A of the launch structure of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle has already been completed: about 61 tons of reinforcement have been installed, and 650 cubic meters of concrete mixture have been laid ...
Taking into account the coating, the concreting of the launch structure is planned to be completed by December 25 this year. And already in December 2015, the launch of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle is scheduled from this site.
In the conditions of severe Amur weather, and also due to the high level of future loads on the construction, there are increased requirements to the quality of performance of each structural element. Low temperatures give complications in the performance of concrete work, as it is necessary to bring the temperature to the required marks and maintain it for the required time with the help of specialized heat cushions. At the same time, in a constant mode, electricity is supplied to the facility. Thus, the necessary thermal contour of the object is created and uninterrupted electrical heating of the concrete is carried out. However, such work requires additional time and material resources.
