Sierra Class Submarine "Nizhniy Novgorod" Returned to Service

From a 13 May, 2008 press release by the "Nerpa" shipyard:

The SSN K-534 "Nizhniy Novgorod" left the waters of the "Nerpa" ship repair facility, the Snezhnogorsk affiliate of the "Zvezdochka" shipyard. The shipyard workers of "Nerpa" brought the nuclear powered ship back to life, having restored the technical readiness and extended the service life of the vessel. The Project 945A SSN moored at "Nerpa" in 2001 after an emergency situation in the reactor compartment. The fate of the vessel was unclear for a long time. The possibility of full repair was as likely as scrapping. The design institute looked for a resolution to save the boat from scrapping and prepared project specifications to restore the technical readiness of the SSN. Only after four years after the start of the repair work was the future of the vessel finally determined in favor of continued service.

In the course of two years, "Nerpa" carried out dockside repairs of K-534, restoring its material condition. The reactor compartment endured an almost complete replacement of equipment and machinery, having suffered damage during the accident. The shipyard workers of "Nerpa" had to master titanium welding, putting into service new repair and production departments. The "Nizhniy Novgorod" is the second SSN returned to service by the Ship Repair Center this year. In January, the Strategic Missile Carrier "Bryansk" returned to duty from the Severodvinsk moorings. April has brought the shipwrights a new success.
