SEVERODVINSK, November 30. /TASS/. The Sevmash shipyard in northwest Russia plans to lay down the 8th Borei-class nuclear-powered underwater missile crusier and the 6th Yasen-class multifunctional submarine in 2016, Shipyard CEO Mikhail Budnichenko said on Monday.
"There are plans for 2016 to lay down the Yasen-and Borei class submarines. As for the submarine names, they are assigned to the submarines by order of the Navy commander-in-chief. The shipyard has not received any such documents so far," he said, without specifying the intended date of keel layings.
The Yasen-class multipurpose nuclear submarines were designed by the Malakhit design bureau. The Russian Navy is expected to receive 7 such submarines in 2023. The first of them, the Severodvinsk, which was laid down in 1993, was transferred to the Russian Navy for operation in 2013.
The Borei-class submarines that will become the mainstay of Russia’s strategic naval nuclear forces were designed by the Rubin design bureau.
