Repair of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) Yekaterinburg suffered fire in Dec 2011 will start on June 21 at JSC Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center and last up to the middle of 2014, reports RIA Novosti referring to a source in the shipyard.

According to the source, SSBN Yekaterinburg (Project 667BDRM Delfin) will arrive at the yard on June 21. "Through the next two years, the sub's technical availability will be recovered; it is also planned to carry out emergency repairs of sonar system damaged by fire", reports the news agency.

The source of RIA Novosti said that "recovery works on Yekaterinburg were supposed to start in Dec 2011, but due to the fire repair was postponed for June 2012".

"After thorough examination of the sonar system, experts decided not to replace it but repair which is considerably cheaper", pointed out the interviewee.

Upon termination of the all-up repairs, the sub will stay in service at least till 2018, reports RIA Novosti.
