As stated at the "Northern Shipyard", the technical readiness of the vessel is 99%. Now it ends work on the schedule of mooring trials. In particular, the engines, diesel generators and steering wheels are tested in operating modes. Builders perform degaussing ship hull. This time, shipbuilders are using a new factory-free demagnetizing demagnetization technology that is less labor intensive and more efficient. The transfer team is preparing for an early exit to the sea trials. Now the team continues to study systems and equipment, participates in exercises for survivability, evacuation from the ship and other stages of preparation for ship control.
