SEVERODVINSK, December 18. /TASS/. The Sevmash Shipyard in the Arkhangelsk Region in north Russia will lay down the sixth Yasen-class multipurpose cruise missile submarine and the eighth Borei-class strategic underwater missile cruiser on two specific dates in 2016, Sevmash CEO Mikhail Budnichenko said on Friday.
The Yasen-class submarine will be laid down on Russia’s Navy Day and the Borei-class submarine on the day of the shipyard’s anniversary, the Sevmash CEO said.
"Next year, we’ll lay down two submarines - one Yasen and one Borei. The dates of keel layings are well known - the Navy Day and the day of the shipyard’s establishment. These are the schedules indicated by the Defense Ministry," he said.
Russia’s Navy Day is celebrated annually on the last Sunday of July.
The Sevmash Shipyard was established by resolution of the USSR government of May 31, 1936. The date of December 21, 1939 is considered as the official date of the start of the shipyard’s production activity. On this day, the shipyard laid down the first battleship Soviet Belorussia.
