Hydraulic tests of the stern hull section of diesel-electric submarine Rostov-na-Donu were successfully held at Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard late in Nov 2012; that is the second Project 06363 submarine being built for Russian Navy, a source in the shipyard told Central Navy Portal.

That was the ninth round out of ten hydraulic tests provided by the construction timeline in 2012. Seven of them were performed by 9-th workshop which celebrated its 60-th anniversary on Nov 1.

In the new year of 2013 the shipyard will face another challenging task. They will have to speed up construction of two series of subs (both for national and foreign navies) and hold other ten hydraulic tests.

At present, Admiralteyskie Verfi is building three diesel-electric submarines under updated Project 06363 Varshavyanka for Russian Navy. The first sub for Black Sea Fleet (B-261 Novorossiysk) was laid down in Aug 2010 and is planned for launching late in 2013. The second submarine (B-237 Rostov-na-Donu) was laid down in Nov 2011. Keel for the third one, B-262 Stary Oskol was laid down in Aug 2012. In total, Russian Navy will receive six Project 0636 submarines by 2017 and form a brigade.

The shipyard is also executing an export order for six Project 06361 subs for Vietnamese Navy. The contract value is about $2 bln. Being laid down in 2009, the lead submarine Hanoi was put afloat in Aug 2012.
