The Severodvinsk plant “Sevmash” will be provided with orders for the construction of nuclear-powered submarines (NPS) and repair of surface ships for the next 10 years, the company’s CEO Michael Budnichenko said on Wednesday.

He added that the “Yasen” and “Borei” project nuclear submarines, built at the “Sevmash”, will be the main component of the marine strategic nuclear forces in the XXI century and will largely affect the country’s defense capability and the ability to pursue its independent policy.

Earlier, Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov, during his working visit to Severodvinsk, awarded the enterprise with a Diploma of the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for its merits in the state security and said that “Sevmash” must now prepare for the construction of the next (fifth) generation submarines.
