MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Amur Shipbuilding Plant will not build nuclear submarines any more, the president of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Roman Trotsenko, told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The plant will specialize in building surface vessels and ships. It will not build nuclear submarines,” he said.
Trotsenko noted that among other reasons, the Amur River’s fairway is no longer safe for deep water submarines.
He reiterated that the Amur Shipbuilding Plant “has been recently taken under control of the United Shipbuilding Corporation.”
“This was a forced measure to save the enterprise that was left by former owners,” he said.
