ARKHANGELSK, October 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The fourth generation Alexander Nevsky nuclear submarine has returned to the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk after sea trials in the White Sea.
During the trials, the submarine’s systems were examined in different modes. “The assignments were fully completed,” Sevmash’s spokesperson Yekaterina Pilikina told Itar-Tass on Monday, October 1.
Previous sea trials had proved the submarine’s excellent seaworthiness and manoeuvrability, Marat Abizhanov, who is in charge of the shipyard’s military production, said.
“After the end of the sea trials, the Alexander Nevsky will move on to a new stage – state trials,” Pilikina said.
The Project 955 submarine is the first serial strategic rocket carrier of the Borei class. It is 170 metres long, 13.5 metres wide, maximum operating depth is 450 metres, and underwater speed is 29 knots.
The leading craft of the series, the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine, is ready to be transferred to the Navy.
Following the Alexander Nevsky, Sevmash laid down another two submarines of the same series – Vladimir Monomakh and Knyaz Vladimir.
Borei class submarines armed with Bulava ICBMs are designed to serve as the basis of Russia’s strategic nuclear capabilities for the decades to come.
Russia planned to build eight submarines of this project by 2020. The Yuri Dolgoruky cost 23 billion roubles. Serial submarines will be less costly.
