JSC Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center has completed repair works on Project 949A Antei nuclear-powered attack submarine Voronezh (K-119), told a source in defense industry to Central Navy Portal.

SSN Voronezh arrived in Severodvinsk for repairs in Oct 2006. Since that time, Zvezdochka shipwrights have performed dock repairs of the sub, replaced turbines, eliminated leakage in steam generator, and conducted recovery operations to prolong the sub's service life for 3 years.

The submarine had completed shipyard's sea trials on Nov 4, 2011 and left the yard heading for permanent basing site on Nov 12, 2011.

Her place at Zvezdochka will be taken by analogous SSN Smolensk which has already arrived in Severodvinsk. Repair of SSN Smolensk is expected to finish in 2014.
