Operation To Raise Kursk Submarine Starts In 6 Hours - 7 October, 2001 - News

The operation to raise the Kursk nuclear submarine starts in 6 hours, told journalists Vice-Admiral Mikhail Motsak, the commander of the Special Task Expedition. According to Motsak, the pressure applied to lifting cables has been built up to a total of 4,000 tons. The pressure needed to raise the sunken vessel is estimated at 4,900 tons. The lifting force applied to the forebody of the submarine has already reached the norm, said Motsak. At this moment, specialists from the barge Giant-4 are busy hoisting up the cables used while attaching the lifting devices to the Kursk. Simultaneously, they are mounting roll sensors and other special gear on the hull of the submarine. This preparatory work will take 6 hours. After that, the Kursk will be docked to the barge's special saddle. Specialists on board the barge will be getting information about the state of the submarine's reactors every 15 minutes.
