Russian navy will not get Delta-IV “Tula” this year

Publish date: December 19, 2005

The nuclear submarine K-114 Tula Project 667BDRM, having undergone repair at the Zvezdochka shipyard in Severodvinsk in Arkhangelsk region, will not be handed over to the Russian Navy as planned.

The reason is the Ministry of Defence’s major debts to the plant. According to Korabelnaya Storona, also the Bryansk nuclear sub will likely suffer the same fate.

In May last year, the Tula was put at the water after four years of upgrade and repair works. The Zvezdochka specialists stressed that the vessel was ready for another 10 years of duty. Now, the ministry’s debt problems might force the vessel to remain some time in the Zvezdochka harbor.
