The director general of the “Roskosmos” state corporation, Igor Komarov, told the head of the Federal Special Construction Agency, Alexander Volosov, that the construction and installation work at the launching sites of the Vostochny Cosmodrome hasn’t been completed in due time, i.e. by February 10th.
As “Kommersant” reported today, citing the letter from Igor Komarov, at present the sites haven’t been completely connected to the engineering provision system. The construction and installation work at the launching site has been 89% completed, water extraction installations 48%, and security systems 40%.
No installation of the “launch minimum” has been put into operation, whereas the deadline for submission of the required documents has been missed.
All this puts into jeopardy the initiation of integrated tests, and, in turn, the launch of the “Souz” rocket. At present, “Roskosmos” has created a working group that will coordinate the elaboration of executive documentation.
To remind you, the first launch from the cosmodrome under construction has already been rescheduled and is now planned for April 25th.
