Docking versions serving as an alternative to the sunken floating dock in Murmansk in northwest Russia have been found for all the Russian Navy’s ships, Head of the United Ship-Building Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov said on Wednesday.

"We have alternatives actually for all the ships except for [the aircraft carrier] Admiral Kuznetsov. Our enterprises are in operation, [including] the Nerpa [Ship Repair Factory]. After all, we can perform certain docking works in Severodvinsk, not far from Murmansk. We don’t feel any special problems in this regard," the chief executive said.

Even the Russians are saying the dock is sunk and that they lack something else as an alternative for the Kuznetsov.

Damages are estimated to be around $1.1million according to the media. link

Also one person who was hospitalised in the incident has died from his injuries. link

Seems like a low figure. Even accounting for the difference in exchange value. I guess if it's all superficial and nothing structural was affected, they could patch for that. We'd spend over that on engineering studies to evaluate the damage first, nevermind actually fixing anything.

I thought it seemed low as well could be the Russian media telling fibs who knows?!

If it's just replacing torn and buckled plates, then you can probably do that cheap and quick. But if there is anything needing structural repair, it seems like that's extremely optimistic.

Have you heard any more about the ship at all I can't seem to find anything?
PS I did send you a pm about it if you missed it.

I've not seen or heard anything. Then again, it's also January and that can be brutal in Mother Russia, so I would not be expecting a lot right now.
