The repair was carried out directly in the engine room of the ship, while the workers managed to avoid cutting the side of the frigate and meet the deadlines.

The exact cause of the breakdown has not yet been determined. A corresponding document was planned to be prepared by mid-February. It is not specified whether engine failure will affect the deadlines for the delivery of the ship.
