MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. The newest cable vessels of the ocean class "Vyatka " and" Volga "of project 15310, which are being built at the "Gulf" plant in Kerch, will be handed over to the Russian Navy in 2023 and 2024. This was reported to TASS on Tuesday by a source in the military-industrial complex.

"According to the existing plans, it is planned to transfer the Vyatka and Volga to the Russian Navy in 2023 and 2024," he said.

Previously, it was planned to transfer the vessels in 2018 and 2019, then in 2020-2021. The delay in construction was presumably due to the need to replace imported equipment with domestic equipment.

According to the source, now the construction of ships is on schedule, there are no problems. "These are giant steamers," he said. The displacement of each of them is more than 10 thousand tons, the length is about 140 m. Both have the 5th ice class.

The source added that one of the vessels will be part of the Northern Fleet, the other - part of the Pacific Fleet.

The vessels were laid down in 2015 in Zelenodolsk, and since 2016 their construction has been continued by the Zaliv plant. According to unconfirmed official information, during this time, "Volga" received a new name - "Sviyaga". On August 18, 2020, the Vyatka was launched. It was to be followed by the Volga, after which the dry construction dock of the Bay will be used for the construction of two universal landing ships, officially laid down at the enterprise on July 20, 2020.
