In Oct 2011 JSC Armalit-1 plans to deliver a parcel of shipborne pipeline accessories for Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard in order to equip the first Project 12700 Alexandrite mine countermeasures ship designed by Almaz Central Design Bureau.

The new project became a breakthrough in nanotechnology. With displacement of 800 tons, the ship has unique and the world's biggest hull made of monolithic fiberglass and shaped by vacuum infusion under Russian-developed technology. According to the shipyard's representatives, the hull was shaped only within 1.5 days which is an achievement claiming for Guinness record. It is considerable milestone in non-metallic hull technology.

Shipboard systems of the record-holding ship will be equipped with valves, filters, clacks, and kingstons produced by JSC Armalit-1 to the overall sum exceeding RUR 28 mln. Latest Russian shipbuilding developments tighten requirements to equipment and impose additional liabilities to customers and operators. Pipeline accessories produced by Armalit-1 again proved the right to be used in new Russian projects.

Project 12700 is designed for countermine warfare both independently and within minesweeping task units in littoral zone. Uniqueness of this project lies in its high maneuverability achieved by light monolithic hull and effective thrusting system. That gives unquestionable advantage to a minesweeper. The project's lead ship will be launched late in 2012. Defense ministry plans to order a series of such ships for the Navy.
