Restoration Of the Spasskaya Tower
December 25, 2014 11:50


The Kremlin chiming clock which restoration began in December will be replaced with a light projection on the New Year’s Eve.

This was announced by the official representative of the Federal Security Service (FSS), doctor of historical sciences Sergey Devyatov. As expected, the light projection will be turned on on December 31 at about 6-7 p.m. MSK and turned off in the middle of the night.

The image will be seen from the Red Square and Okhotny Ryad. The question of creating a light installation is currently being elaborated by FSS jointly with the Government of Moscow.

The Kremlin’s Spasskaya Tower is now closed not only with scaffolding, but also with a special cloth raising the air temperature above zero degrees Celsius. The cloth also muffles the sound of chimes. This problem is to be solved by sound amplifiers set on the tower. According to Devyatov, the chimes should sound in a familiar way at midnight on December 31.

The restoration of the Spasskaya Tower of the Kremlin is to be completed in April 2015. In the near future it is planned to dismantle dials, hands and numerals of the chimes for their restoration. It also may be necessary to stop the mechanism. Devyatov told that the external clock elements suffer because of rain and automobile exhausts, so they will be covered with a layer of a special preservative. After this the mechanism will be started anew.
