“It is planned that by 2024 a series of 6 units of non-nuclear submarines of project 636.3 will be built for the Pacific Ocean, which will raise the solution of tasks by the Pacific Fleet to a new level of efficiency in its operational area of responsibility,” said the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov sent to the participants of the ceremony of admission to the diesel-electric submarine “Volkhov”, which took place at the enterprise “Admiralty Shipyards” in St. Petersburg.
In his greeting, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov emphasized that “the project 636.3 Volkhov submarine, which was accepted into the Navy today, has improved tactical and technical characteristics. A number of innovative solutions have been implemented in the design of this submarine, which make it even more advanced, even quieter and more secretive. The characteristics of the submarine’s key weapons and life support systems have been brought to a new qualitative level. The crew underwent training in new training programs at the Naval Training Center, and then, during the tests of the submarine, consolidated the knowledge gained in practice. The experience of the submarines of this project, which were previously built in the amount of 6 units for the Black Sea Fleet, showed their efficiency and reliability, as well as a good modernization stock. As a result, a series of non-nuclear submarines being built for the Pacific Fleet embodied the joint efforts of the Main Command of the Navy, designers and shipbuilders of the United Shipbuilding Corporation and cooperative enterprises to further develop project 636.3 in accordance with the dynamics of scientific and technological progress. The main command of the Russian Navy and, in particular, the Military Educational and Scientific Center of the Russian Navy, provides military and scientific support for the entire cycle of submarine development, from design to completion. “
“A series of Project 636.3 submarines, being built for the Pacific Fleet, takes into account the specifics of their operation in the Far East,” said Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.
“In general, it should be noted that the Submarine Forces of the Pacific Fleet, their nuclear and non-nuclear components, are at an active stage of their development. This process will continue in the future, as it meets the requirements of the Navy to ensure guaranteed security from sea and ocean directions, “the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy summed up in his congratulations to the shipbuilders of the Admiralty Shipyards, who built and transferred to the Navy another submarine.
