Nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine (SSGN) Severodvinsk has returned to Sevmash shipyard after successful completion of another sea trials round, reports the shipyard's press service.

"All tasks were accomplished in full", said Marat Abizhanov, defense production director of JSC Sevmash.

The submarine's missile system and various onboard facilities were tested during the trials.

According to experts, Severodvinsk passed the first significant milestone as the sub has spent 100 days at sea in the course of all sea trials rounds. The sub's commanding officer Capt 1 Rank Sergei Mitiayev congratulated the crew and trial team on that achievement and wished further success.

Recently, SSBN Alexander Nevsky also finished another phase of shipyard's sea trials. In the nearest time both submarines will start preparation for state acceptance trials.

As of today, SSGN Severodvinsk is the most up-to-date submarine in Russian Navy. She left the Sevmash's slipway and was put afloat in 2010.
