July 22, 2021 (Google Translation) – This week at the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of Zvezdochka, a subsidiary of the USC), a dock operation was carried out to place the Leninsky Komsomol nuclear submarine into the Pallada shipyard, where work will be performed to dismantle the fairing of the hydraulic complex to provide stability of the ship on a solid foundation.
After the completion of these works, “Leninsky Komsomol” will be moved to the floating dock of the Main Directorate of Deep-Sea Research of the Russian Navy “Sviyaga”, in which K-3 will go to St. Petersburg via the White Sea-Baltic Canal with further towing to Kronstadt
It is planned that the first-born of the Russian nuclear submarine, the Leninsky Komsomol nuclear submarine, will become the central exposition of the Museum of Naval Glory in Kronstadt, which is being created by the autonomous non-profit organization Ostrov Fortov.
After the re-equipment, key spaces will be restored inside the boat and the possibility of free access for all groups of the population, including those with limited mobility, will be provided. The boat will be placed on metal supports and covered with a glass dome.
