JSC Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center will deliver three repaired and modernized submarines to Russian Navy this year, said the shipyard's director general Vladimir Nikitin.

"We have a quite eventful delivery campaign in this year. Two nuclear-powered submarines Verkhoturye and Novomoskovsk, and diesel electric submarine Kaluga will be delivered to the Navy by the year end", Nikitin told Interfax.

Besides, it is planned to hand over submarine INS Sindhurakshak to India in this year; the sub is currently passing repair and modernization, pointed out the interviewee.

Project 667BDRM Delfin (known in NATO as Delta-IV) nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines are the key component of Russia's maritime nuclear deterrence force. Lead sub of the project SSBN Verkhoturye was laid down at Sevmash shipyard in Feb 1981 and joined Soviet Navy in Dec 1984.

Project 667BDRM K-407 Novomoskovsk was launched in Nov 1990 being the seventh and the last submarine in the series. Novomoskovsk arrived at Zvezdochka for interim overhaul and modernization in Nov 2008. As a result, her lifetime will be 10 years longer expiring in 2021.

Length of Delfin-class submarines is 167 meters; beam is 12 meters; displacement is about 12,000 tons; test depth is 400 meters; cruise submerged speed is 24 knots (44.5 kph); crew is 140. The submarines are armed with 16 ballistic missiles. Project 877 Paltus (aka Varshavyanka or Kilo) diesel electric submarine Kaluga was designed by Rubin bureau and commissioned into Soviet Navy in 1989. Her full displacement exceeds 3,000 tons; submerged speed is up to 17 knots; length is 72.6 meters; beam is 9.9 meters; armament includes six 533-mm torpedo tubes; crew is 57 men.

JSC Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center is a diversified shipbuilding company. The shipyard has two covered slipways with 7 sites suitable for repairs and construction of ships with weight up to 18,000 tons. 100 per cent minus 1 share belong to JSC Northern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center which is affiliate of United Shipbuilding Corporation.
