ARKHANGELSK, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Yuri Dolgoruky advanced fourth-generation strategic nuclear submarine, built at the Sevmash military shipyard in Severodvinsk, is ready for commissioning, the enterprise’s press service told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Sevmash specialists have removed all the shortcomings found by the standing commission for state acceptance of vessels, to which testifies the vessel’s inspection act, signed by Chief of the Main Staff of the Russian Navy Admiral Alexander Tatarinov,” the press service said.
JSC PO Sevmash is a shipbuilding company based in Severodvinsk, a port city on Russia's White Sea. The name Sevmash is an abbreviation of Severnoye Mashinostroitelnoye Predpriyatie (i.e. Northern Machine-Building Enterprise). Sevmash is the largest shipbuilding enterprise in Russia and today the country’s only nuclear submarine producer. In 2009, the company employed 26,951 people and its revenue from military production was 533.02 million US dollars.
The Yuri Dolgoruky submarine, built within Project 955 Borei, is an advanced strategic missile carrying submarine. Its hull length is 170 metres, width - 13.5 metres, maximum depth - 450 metres, underwater speed - 29 knots. After the Yuri Dolgoruky nuclear-powered submarine, the Alexander Nevsky, Vladimir Monomakh and Prince Vladimir submarines were laid down. The series of the fourth-generation nuclear submarines armed with the Bulava ballistic missile system will form the basis of Russia’s naval strategic nuclear forces in the coming decade.
The Borei class submarines are designed at the St. Petersburg-based Rubin Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering. The Rubin Design Bureau is one of the main Russian centres of submarine design, having designed more than two-thirds of all nuclear submarines in the Russian Navy.
