Zvezdochka to Continue Upgrading Project 945 Submarines
Modernization of the Karp nuclear submarine at the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center is being performed according to plan. This was announced by the press service of the enterprise.
A source in the military-industrial complex earlier said that modernization has been suspended due to the lack of funds. However, the press service of the Zvezdochka Center refused to comment on this information.
“The Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center is the executor of the state contract for modernization of two Project 945 nuclear submarines. The work envisaged by the contract is being performed according to schedule. The customer is the Russian Defence Ministry and we can suspend this work only by its order,” the press service said.
Russia’s Defence Ministry ordered repair and modernization of two Project 945 submarines in late 2012. In 2014, the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center started preparatory work on the first submarine named the Karp.
