ARKHANGELSK, August 28, /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian shipyard said on Wednesday it no longer depends on supplies of Ukrainian equipment for building nuclear power submarines as it completed the government's task to eliminate the reliance on imports.
"We've already found Russian suppliers of these products," the press service of "Sevmash," a shipyard based in Severodvinsk in Russia's northern Arkhangelsk region, told Itar-Tass.
Sevmash is successfully implementing its import-substitution programme and the newest submarines of Project 885 ("Yasen") will have 100% of Russian equipment, the press service said.
Earlier, the company said the Knyaz Vladimir submarine of Project 955A only used domestic parts and assemblies, and Sevmash director Mikhail Budnichenko said preference had been given to domestic producers of metal and equipment with a small portion of imported parts.
Budnichenko's deputy said that the company manufactured a large volume of assemblies at its own facilities, including machine building products and reinforced steel.
Sevmash is part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation. It employs more than 26,000 people, producing ships with displacement of up to 100,000 tons, including nuclear-powered vessels.
At present, the company is building Yasen-and Borei-class nuclear power submarines.
