MOSCOW, April 13 (Itar-Tass) — The Severodvinsk Zvezdochka ship-repairing plant will start to repair the Yekaterinburg strategic nuclear-powered submarine damaged in a fire in December 2011 in the end of this year.
“Zvezdochka will repair the Yekaterinburg and modernize it for extending the submarine’s useful life by five to six years,” a defense industry representative told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The Yekaterinburg will arrive in the plant in summer, when ice melts in the White Sea. The repairs will start in the end of the year after the estimate is drawn and a contract is signed between the Russian Defense Ministry and the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC),” the source said.
“The submarine will be returned to the Navy in summer or fall 2014,” he said.
