UGLEGORSK, December 09, 13:19 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on Monday examined progress of the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome’s launch site.
The contractors told Rogozin that they had enough materials and equipment, but there was personnel shortage still, due to which they had to redeploy workers to the launch site from other facilities. Experts have managed to close the gap, and currently the work is going on schedule.
The launch site construction work is planned to be completed by July 2015. By January 2014, a detailed plan on the launch side construction will be prepared, according to the relevant instruction of head of Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) Oleg Ostapenko to the contractors.
Rogozin also inspected the preliminary location area of two more launch sites - for the Angara super heavy carrier rockets. The construction of one or the launch sites is planned to be started in 2016. The completion of the work on the first facility and beginning of the construction of the second is planned for 2018.
“Taking into account the space plans that are made by the country, it is necessary to see beyond 2020. The construction of a universal site for super heavy rockets of all types should be started here,” Rogozin said.
