About the Alexandrit class minesweeper Vladimir Yemelyanov

The Alexandrit class, Russian designation Project 12700 Aleksandrit (for the mineral alexandrite), is the newest class of Russian minesweepers designed by Almaz and being built by the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard for the Russian Navy.

The first ship was laid down on 22 September 2011 and was launched in June 2014. Anywhere between 30 and 50+ ships have been described as envisaged.

The main feature of project 12700 is a monolithic fiberglass hull shaped by vacuum infusion, a modern construction method that results in a lighter hull with longer service life.

The ships of the class are designed to use various flails, as well as tele-guided and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vehicles to disable or destroy mines at safe distances.

The minesweepers have a length of 61.0 m (200 ft 2 in), a beam of 10.2 m (33 ft 6 in), and a draught of 2.68 m (8 ft 10 in). They can reach a top speed of 16.5 knots (31 km/h).
