LE BOURGET, October 29. /TASS/. The lead frigate of Project 11356, the Admiral Grigorovich, is to be handed over to the Russian Navy on November 7, a delegation of the Baltic shipyard Yantar, manufacturing the ships of the series, told TASS at the Euronaval 2014 exhibition in Paris on Wednesday.
“On November 7, we will hand over the lead frigate to the Russian Fleet at a solemn ceremony to be attended by Commander-in-Chief (Viktor) Chirkov,” the representative of the Kaliningrad-based Yantar shipyard said.
The Admiral Grigorovich was laid down in mid-December 2010 and was set afloat in March this year. The frigate is part of the six ships being constructed in Kaliningrad: the Admiral Essen, the Admiral Makarov, the Admiral Butakov, the Admiral Istomin and the Admiral Kornikov.
Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation said in June that the Black Sea Fleet is due to receive a series of six frigates of Project 11356 by 2017, a year later than initially planned.
The Yantar shipyard explained the delay by the fact that the sixth frigate is due to be laid down later than announced.
Euronaval 2014 is one of the world’s largest naval defense exhibitions. This year, the event takes place on October 27-31 at the Le Bourget exhibition center.The exhibition brings together over 350 companies from around 30 countries. More than 90 delegations from 65 countries are expected to attend the event. Russian news agency TASS is an official media partner of the exhibition.
