The corvette is currently being constructed by the Severnaya Verf Shipyard in St. Petersburg, the press office added.
The Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard is a subsidiary of Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC).
In mid-May, the superstructure will be towed to the customer to be installed on the corvette, the press office said.
“Advanced composite materials were used to make the superstructure. They and the design solutions used during the construction of the superstructure ensure optimal radar stealth, considerably reduce the weight of the hull and increase usable space,”
The Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard started to build superstructures with the use of composite materials for Russian Navy ships in 2003. As of today, the shipyard has delivered 11 superstructures made of polymer composite materials to the Severnaya Verf Shipyard and the Amur Shipyard in Russia’s Far East to be mounted on Project 20380 and Project 20385 corvettes.
