MOSCOW, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The fire at ship repair plant Nerpa in northern Russia’s Murmansk region that broke out in scrapping of a nuclear submarine was put out on Monday. No casualties were reported in the fire, the shipyard’s press service reported.
“Fires break out very rarely in scrapping of submarines. There has been no fire at the shipyard already for several years. The reasons for the fire are being looked into,” the press service said.
The fire broke out onboard Project 949A (former Krasnodar) multipurpose nuclear submarine. The submarine was decommissioned from Russia’s Navy in 1995 and was brought to ship repair plant Nerpa in 2010. In 2013 preparation of the submarine for scrapping began, nuclear fuel was unloaded from her in the autumn of the same year.
“The submarine carried neither weapons nor fuel and lubricants nor fissile radioactive material,” spokesman of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Aleksey Kravchenko told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Eight fire trucks were working at the incident site.
