Starting platform of the project “Sea launch” will begin to distill from the US to Russia on 22 February, told RIA Novosti source in the space industry.
The arrival of the spaceport from California (long beach) in Primorye (the Slavic ship-repair plant) is expected in March.
In October 2019, the Agency reported that “Sea launch” prepared for shipment from the USA to Russia.
The work on creation of floating cosmodrome began in 1995. Founders of the company became Boeing’s Rocket and space Corporation Energia, the Norwegian shipbuilding company Kvaerner (Aker Solutions modern), Ukrainian design Bureau “southern” and the plant “Pivdenmash”. In 2009, Sea launch filed for bankruptcy. After the reorganization a leading role in the project has received “Energy”. In 2018, the S7 group of companies closed the transaction on purchase of the property complex of the project, becoming the full owner of the floating spaceport. The total transaction, including the withdrawal of conservation, amounted to approximately $ 150 million.
