BLAGOVESHCHENSK, June 9. /TASS/. Experts and technical specialists of the Russian federal space agency Roscosmos have completed assembly of the launch system of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle a month ahead of schedule and have done the first necessary adjustment and start-up works, the press service of the Center for Ground Infrastructures reporting to Roscosmos said on Tuesday.
"We tested the running capacity of electric and/or hydraulic equipment and the metal structures and also did the attuning of various gauges," a source at the center said. The testing was successful and did not produce any remarks, he said.
"Assembly of the launch system of the Soyuz-2 vehicle were to be over in July but the efficiency of Roscosmos specialists made it possible to round it up almost a month earlier," the spokesman said.
Experts at the Center for Ground Infrastructures gave the assurances the system was full ready for autonomous testing that would begin after the installation was connected to full-scale regular electricity supplies. "All the launch and technology supervision systems have been manufactured," the source said. "As much as 96% of all the equipment for the technological complex has been delivered to the site."
Russian government is building the Vostochny space center as of 2010 near the town of Uglegorsk in the Far-Eastern Amur region. It will be the first national fully civilian space center in Russia that will provide this country with an opportunity of space launches for all types of purposes.
