Project 11711 large landing ship Ivan Gren will be put afloat late in May, press service of Yantar Shipyard told Central Navy Portal.

Currently, the yard is preparing the ship for transfer to launching dock. Afterwards, Ivan Gren will be put afloat and moored at outfitting quay.

Large landing ship Ivan Gren was laid down at Yantar Shipyard (Kaliningrad) in Dec 2004 and was supposed to open a 4-ship series. During construction process, the Navy three times altered technical specifications; 22 serious changes were introduced in the project. That has led to considerable delays. So far, final technical appearance of the ship has not been determined. Scheduled keel-laying of the first batch ship was postponed.

The landing ship is presently stays on the outdoor slipway; shipwrights are completing installation of interior equipment and laying cables. Due to underfinancing, works are going on slowly. Scheduled delivery date is 2014.
