Until 2016 year in Yakutia, a workshop will be created to assemble amphibious ekranoplans

In 2015, in the capital of Yakutia, construction of an assembly plant for the Burevestnik-24 ekranoplanes will begin. TASS was informed about this by Vladimir Bukovsky, General Director of the Sky + Sea manufacturing company.

"It is planned to create in Yakutia an amphibian assembly shop and a pilot training and training complex," he said. Initial investments for the period up to 2016 will amount to RUB 12 million, Bukovsky said. The capacity of the plant will be determined during the preparation of the project's economic feasibility study, which will be completed in 2015.

It is assumed that the ekranoplanes produced in Yakutia except the republic will also be operated in the Irkutsk region, Primorye, Kamchatka, Sakhalin and in other regions.

Amphibian is made of composite materials, which significantly reduces its weight and makes it more economical to operate.

"Burevestnik-24" can move in three modes: like a normal boat through the water with a maximum speed of 30 km / h, at 120 km / h the vessel begins to glide with minimal contact with the water, and at a speed of 240 km / h due to the "screen effect "the vehicle rises above the water.

The introduction of this vessel, according to designers, will create a mobile transport system in the republic, which will solve the problem of transport accessibility. In the region, more than 80% of the territories are in the seasonal access zone, with which there is no year-round transport connection.

Yakutia is planning to base 35 machines. Thanks to the amphibian, the cost of tickets for intraregional transportation may be reduced by 50%. So, tests of the vessel on the route Yakutsk - Olekminsk, the distance between which 600 km, showed a reduction in the cost of the fare for the ticket twice as compared with air travel.
