Sevmash to focuse on the construction of nuclear submarines


The Sevmash shipbuilding company based in Severodvinsk, a port city on Russia’s White Sea, has boosted manufacturing of submarines to the level of the best Soviet years, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.

“We are building submarines at Sevmash shipyard beyond the Polar circle at a rate like during the best Soviet years,” Rogozin told members of the eighth youth Arctic expedition.

The Sevmash shipyard builds nuclear submarines of two series – the strategic Borei class and multipurpose Yasen class boats. In recent years, three Borei class submarines and one Yasen class submarine have been commissioned with the Russian Navy.
