"The Russian SpaceX" was covered by the Russian bureaucracy


S7 Space (S7 Space transportation systems — the Space transport systems), trying to reanimate the floating spaceport "Sea Start", I have faced the bureaucracy and disinterest in partnership of public industries which have led to increase in cost of starting company services. TASS the CEO of S7 Space Sergey Sopov has reported about it. According to him, Roskosmos has ignored the offer of the company to order from state corporation of 50 rockets "Union-5" with the option for 35 more such carriers. "The order is firm, with an advance payment in 10 percent. But from Roskosmos for last year hasn't followed reaction as if they also didn't hear about such offer. It would be possible to call it a joke, but such is reality. We were ready to transfer words to the firm contract" — the head of the company has told. The CEO has noted that the conversation went about the sum of 2,5 billion dollars which would go for investments into the project "Union-5". Sopov has told also about the choice of the engine for the created S7 Space of a rocket "Union-7" with a reusable first step. "Samara (the enterprise of "Smiths" entering into UEC — a comment of Lenta.ru) isn't ready to transfer us the NK-33 engine and documentation on him for independent production, and instead suggested to finance restoration of mass production in Samara and then to buy these engines" — the CEO has noted. According to him, "the fate of this engine surprising — he is destroyed by creators" which "the question hasn't interested". Instead of the modernized NK-33 which the first step had to receive "Union-7" the rocket will be equipped with the reusable engine on the basis of RD-171 from Energomash. Materials on teme00:08 — on June 8, 2017 Qie peremogaukrainsky Yuzhmash bypassing Roskosmos has resumed production of rockets "Zenit" Sopov has also noted delays with deliveries completing for rockets "Zenit-3SL", caused by not haste of the Russian authorities. "The contract for production has been signed last year, the issue is agreed with all countries — partners of the project, and from the Russian side the question only just is in the home stretch" — the head of S7 Space has explained. According to him, the company has received "the decision of the commission of export control" and expects "execution of the order of the government" which text is agreed with Roskosmos. "It is compromise option between the fact that we would like, and what we are given. As a result bureaucratic requirements will lead to rise in price of each our rocket approximately for two million dollars" — Sopov has specified. Now S7 Space is the only Russian private company making space starting services. At the disposal of the company there are two platforms — Sea Start (Long Beach, California, the USA) and "Land start" (Baikonur, Kazakhstan) intended, respectively, for start of the Russian-Ukrainian rockets "Zenit-3SL" and "Zenit-3SLB". In the long term from these platforms it is planned to start the carriers "Union-7" created by S7 Space on the basis of the rocket "Union-5" developed by Roskosmos.
