JSC Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard (St. Petersburg, Russia) will build 17 ships for Russian Navy and foreign clients by 2017, the yard's director general Alexander Buzakov told the Direct Investments magazine.

As for him, all 17 ships are already under construction. Buzakov added that about RUR 2 bln would be spent for the shipyard's modernization.

Admiralteyskie Verfi is one of the key Russian shipyards. Currently, the yard builds three Project 06363 Varshavyanka diesel-electric submarines for Russian Navy. The first submarine named Novorossiysk was laid down in Aug 2010. Keel for the second one, Rostov-na-Donu, was laid down in Nov 2011. Construction of the third one, Stary Oskol, started in Aug 2012. In general, Russian Navy plans to receive all six subs of this class by 2017.

Apart from submarines for Russian Navy, Admiralteyskie Verfi is executing Vietnam's order for six Project 06361 submarines. The lead sub was launched in Aug 2012. Vietnam is to receive the first submarine in 2014. Algeria may order two Varshavyanka-class subs from Russia as well.

In addition, Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard is a subcontractor of the Mistral project.
