LANGKAWI ISLAND, Malaysia, March 27 (Itar-Tass) – Two strategic nuclear-powered submarines Borei (project 955) will be presented to the Russian Navy for acceptance checks this year, the general director of the central design bureau of marine technologies Rubin, Igor Vilnit, told ARMS-TASS at the international exhibition LIMA 2013.
He said Rubin this year was expected to deliver the Alexander Nevsky and the Vladimir Monomakh submarines.
At present the first serially produced nuclear powered submarine, the Alexander Nevsky (project 955), is undergoing state certification tests. The other serial submarine, the Vladimir Monomakh after completing mooring trials is scheduled to undergo the manufacturer’s sea trials in the White Sea at the end of June and early July. After that it will be presented for state certification tests, which will end with a single launch of the Bulava missile.
The head ship of project 955 the Yuri Dolgoruky, entered duty last January. The Knyaz Vladimir submarine, laid down in January, will be built under an upgraded project, 955A. A total of five of such submarines will leave the shipyard.
