November 5, 2019 (Google Translation) – The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy (Navy) congratulated the staff of the Admiralty Shipyards, the oldest shipbuilding enterprise, on its 315th anniversary.
In his congratulations, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov noted the enormous contribution of the Admiralty Shipyards to the construction and development of the Russian Navy, as well as more than three centuries of achievements of this enterprise in laying the foundation of domestic traditions of naval shipbuilding.
The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, in particular, emphasized that the “Admiralty Shipyards” at the present stage are the basic enterprise of non-nuclear submarine building, capable of successfully conducting the serial construction of diesel-electric submarines of projects 636.3 and 677, which are in demand by the Navy and have characteristics that are not having analogues in the world.
“The company successfully completed the task of constructing a series of six units of Project 636.3 submarines for the submarine forces of the Black Sea Fleet. A submarine series of this project for the Pacific Fleet is currently under construction. The ceremony of laying two large diesel-electric submarines of project 636.3 Ufa and Magadan, intended for the submarine forces of the Pacific Fleet, took place on November 1. The first submarine of this series “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky” completed the marine phase of state tests, and the second – “Volkhov” – is preparing for launching, which is planned for December. Admiralty Shipyards shipbuilders plan to build a series of project 636.3 non-nuclear submarines for the Pacific Fleet by 2022, ”Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.
He also said that the “Admiralty” mastered the construction of ice class patrol ships of project 23550. The lead patrol ship, project Ivan Papanin, was launched in October, and the construction of the second such ship, Nikolai Zubov, is planned by the end of the year.
“The ships built at the Admiralty Shipyards have always been distinguished by high quality and reliability, and I am sure that this tradition will continue,” said the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.
