    On 26 October 2016, Admiralteiskie Verfi shipyard delivered diesel-electric submarine Veliky Novgorod to RF Navy, the Company says in its press release. 

    The ceremony of hoisting the naval flag held at the deepwater embankment of the shipyard was attended by Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Aleksandr Fedotenkov and Director General of Admiralteiskie Verfi Aleksandr Buzakov.

    “It is symbolic to hoist the flag on the eve of the 320-year anniversary since the foundation of Russia’s Navy. We are proud to say that the company is honourably carrying on the traditions established by Peter I, the construction of state-of-the-art ships for Russian fleet. In a month we will deliver the Kolpino, the last (sixth) submarine in the series. The staff of the shipyard has already commenced the construction of the new series – six submarines of Project 636 for the Pacific Fleet”, said Aleksandr Buzakov.

    Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Aleksandr Fedotenkov said: “It is a remarkable day! The Navy has always been a source of national pride and I want to express my gratitude to the personnel of the glorious Admiralteiskie Verfi for their smooth and accurate work on construction of submarines for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. I am sure the fifth submarine of the series will get only ‘fives’, or ‘excellent’, marks for its service! In the near future we expect the series of six submarines for the Pacific Fleet”, he said.

    The Veliky Novgorod submarine, the fifth one in the series being built by Admiralteiskie Verfi shipyard for RF Navy, was laid down in October 2014. The submarine has been built under the long-term plan of RF Defence Ministry on Black Sea Fleet’s combat readiness recovery and the programme on improvement of diesel-electric submarines for Russian Navy. 

    All six submarines of the series are named after Hero-Cities or Cities of Military Glory.

    The Novorossiysk, the lead submarine of the series, and the Rostov-on-Don joined the Black Sea Fleet of RF Navy in August and December 2014. Two more submarines, the Stary Oskol and the Krasnodar, were delivered to RF Navy in July and November 2015. State trials of the Kolpino, the sixth and the last submarine in the series, are nearing completion. The submarine is to be delivered to RF Navy by the end of the year.

    In October the shipyard has started implementing a newly signed state contract for construction of a series of six submarines of project 636.3 for the Pacific Fleet of Russia.

    The submarines of updated project 636 have enhanced (compared with previous projects) combat effectiveness. Optimal combination of stealth capabilities and target detection range, the newest inertial navigation system, modern automated information management system, powerful high-speed torpedo and missiles equipment provide for global priority of this class ships in area of conventional submarine shipbuilding. JSC “Admiralteiskie Verfi” is an undoubted leader in construction of submarines of this class and since 1983 the enterprise has been successfully exporting them.
    The series production of submarines at “Admiralteiskie Verfi” started in 1932, and during that period have been built more than 400 submarines and deep-water vehicles of various projects. Admiralteiskie Verfi has been building submarines from 1932. Over this period the shipyard has built over 400 submarines and different deepwater vehicles.

    Admiralteiskie Verfi OJSC (Admiralty Shipyards) is a key enterprise of shipbuilding, a centre of conventional submarine building of Russia. The shipyard is affiliated with the United Shipbuilding Corporation OJSC. A number of contracts are being successfully implemented at the shipyard for domestic and foreign customers. Four series of submarines are under construction now for RF and foreign Navies. Besides, icebreaker Ilya Muromets is under construction. The Company’s staff numbers 6,500 persons. On 5 November 2016 the shipyard will celebrate 312 years from its foundation.
