In St. Petersburg shipyard "Severnaya Verf" started work on loading and installing on the corvette "Gremyashchy" (Project 20385) of the ship main engines of domestic production.
The main engines are produced Kolomna plant in accordance with the technical requirements of the High Command of the Navy as part of the import substitution program surfaced in military shipbuilding. According to the Navy's mission, the Central Marine Design Bureau CMDB "Almaz" and employees of the company "Severnaya Verf" were made the appropriate calculations, allows an efficient integration of the domestic engines without breaking the design characteristics of the corvette.
Installed on the corvette "Gremyashchy" type engine is standard on the Kolomna plant. However, the Navy decision, this type of propulsion systems made improvements, allowing to improve the quality parameters of performance. In total, the corvette "Gremyashchy" in May will be installed 4 engine.
