KUBINKA /Moscow Region/, March 20. /TASS/. Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) will be delivering two-three nuclear-powered submarines a year to the Russian Navy starting from 2020, which exceeds the pace of Soviet shipbuilding, USC President Alexei Rakhmanov said on Wednesday.
"The order book of the Severnoye Machine-Building Enterprise is already larger than the volume of orders that existed during the Soviet period. Beginning with the next year, we will be delivering two-three submarines a year," the USC chief said at a research and business conference in the Patriot Park.
The head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation specified that the shipbuilders would be delivering nuclear-powered submarines to the Navy.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu earlier said that the Navy would get two nuclear-powered submarines and one diesel-electric sub this year.
