In France, a nuclear submarine caught fire

In France, a maintenance nuclear submarine caught fire. A fire broke out at a submarine moored at a naval base in French Toulon, according to the Mediterranean Sea Prefecture.


According to data published by local media, the incident occurred on the Perle nuclear submarine, belonging to the class "Ryubi" (Rubis). The submarine has been under maintenance since January of this year, the fire could be caused by work being carried out on it. It is emphasized that at the time of the fire, there were no weapons or batteries on board the submarine.

The smoke from a fire at Perle is not radioactive. There is no nuclear fuel on board. We remind you that throughout France there are sensors that record all the anomalies associated with the level of radioactive elements

- stated in the prefecture.

It is clarified that not only local fire brigades arrived to fight the fire aboard the submarine, but Marcel also helped, which can indicate the power of fire. There is currently no information about the victims.

The multipurpose nuclear submarine Perle (S606) was laid down on March 27, 1987, launched on September 22, 1990 and became part of the French Navy on July 7, 1993.

Above-water displacement - 2 449 t, underwater - 2713 t, length - 73,6 m, width - 7,6 m, draft - 6,4 m. GEM: CAS-48 nuclear reactor with a capacity of 48 MW with an integrated heat exchange system; two turbogenerators working on one propeller shaft; standby diesel generator.

The maximum underwater speed is 25 knots, the working immersion depth is 300 m, the maximum is 500 meters, the autonomy is 60 days, the crew of 68 people, including eight officers.

Armament: four 533-mm bow torpedo tubes, anti-ship missiles SM-39 "Exoset", torpedoes F-17 mod. 2, mines FG-29.

    This is what a violation of TB rules leads to during routine maintenance.

      Again welded screwed up .... Or was there a big smoke break, turning into a fire?
      It is strange that
      There is no nuclear fuel on board.

      Maintenance boat and all nuclear fuel unloaded from it?

        The reactor is cooled through outboard water, of course the fuel is unloaded. It is still not clear what level of repair work was carried out on the boat.

    The reactor was removed from the submarine; almost 30 years of operation have passed.
    It remains to wait for Old, for fortunetelling is a thankless task.
    PS Even "Pearl" can be fire hazardous.

      Yes, there are almost no options.
      Reactor removed, batteries removed. Means the boat is de-energized.
      Repair work is underway.
      In my opinion, the following options are possible.
      -fire during welding / cutting (the spark is gone)
      - ignition of the temporary power supply system (carrying shorted)
      -fire when using open flame (warmed up soup)

      In general, all 3 options are TB violation. People are all so alike .......

      Our plants are not the safest, there were 3 HPVs, it became 2 but bigger and their equipment is NEW!
      YES, they are now called differently, but this does not change the essence of the matter.

          How to say, really, from meaningful, only ONE completely died ... unfortunately, my dear !!!
          Two more, half-dead roofing felts, half-dead roofing felts .... they work according to the profile, but they got really tight ... indecently.
          We have a city of big, very big chemistry and metallurgy !!! It happened so, it was built in the Soviet Union ..... as they now like to put it, a large industrial cluster.
          Since then, nothing large has been built, but there are really many small things in the construction and household sectors. The industry works, people have the means ......

        Honestly, I have not been interested in it for a long time - maybe it was restored again. We had one single part and it was disbanded, and then there was a fire at the nuclear power plant - sodium burned from the first cooling circuit (something broke off a pipe), so the firemen barely managed. Maybe after that they restored ....

      Not true. Well, I won’t tell you about different tricky factories. Parts at nuclear power plants are reversed. in the USSR - they practically did not exist - Chernobyl ordinary firefighters extinguished.
      The boats were extinguished before by the military (my classmate served in such a unit) - and now nothing has changed.

    Hmm, the French gave information, practically, 0. And on the basis of their information, with the translation into Russian, it turned out 0, 0001 ... A boat on the water, in an open-air dock or in a closed workshop where there is a fire extinguishing system? "Boat under maintenance" - what's this? Unloaded nuclear fuel, removed batteries, removed mines, torpedoes, cruise missiles and that's it? Or, in the hull, technological cutouts were made in the 3rd compartment above the reactor and it was pulled out to put a new one, and in the 4th - there is a single-hull boat, or in the 1st and 5th, there is a double-hull boat, and the rubber between the hulls caught fire? Or it started over the bridge, the rubber just caught fire on the hull, or maybe the central one burned out, maybe the fire started at the very bottom in the hold and went from below - up the entire 2nd compartment? We were not informed about the area of ​​the fire. Is there a specialized fire department that the shipyard serves, which means that the fire officers are familiar with the device of this particular boat, which differs from the first 4 boats in the series even in size - we do not know. Did the local fire brigades use ordinary fire engines and flood the boat on the water with only foam? Or did local firefighters use only powder-extinguishing vehicles, or only gas extinguishing vehicles (for example, freon) or a boat at the dock and they needed fire trucks with lifts to feed the fire barrel to a height of 10-12 meters? And why did the fire extinguishing system in the boat itself not work, the sensors were all removed at the same time in order to replace them with new ones, or were only the pipelines of the fire extinguishing system removed? Some questions ...

      Good questions to the point. But they make up "closed" information, with the exception of video from afar:

      And why the fire extinguishing system in the boat itself didn’t work,

      If you remove the reactor, batteries and diesel, then to extinguish the extinguishing system it must be powered from the outside. Probably decided not to fool. I understand the article that the boat was de-energized. but you are right a lot is not clear.

      Do not confuse God's gift with ... The fact that here the news and many other materials are written with the left foot does not say anything about the French. Boat in a dry open dock.
      As for the composition of the maintenance, do you seriously think that the military will lay out technical documentation (no matter how interesting it is to us)? Boats of this type undergo scheduled maintenance (long repairs) every 6-7 years (this is connected with the nuclear power plant cycle) during which the fuel is reloaded and modernization is carried out (avionics, bi-power vehicle, etc.)
      There is data on the victims - there are no victims. About sensors - a strange question. The assessment of the consequences of the fire will be essno later - it simply cannot exist now. You can read about the boat (how many hulls, etc.) on the wiki though - this does not directly relate to the topic of fire

    Boa constrictor KAA (Alexander), thank you, video nothing, you are right. They posted it on RBC in the "Society" section on 13.06.20 at 11:08; 5Fnews
    Hand trunks and fire monitors from cars extinguish in white light, like a penny. It can be seen that part of the water from several trunks, on the left, falls on the forests around the boat ... I wonder how many hours after the start of the fire, firefighters boarded the boat ...

    These are the kind of boats that should have been built in the Russian Federation instead of the Varshavyanka and not bother with the VNU. Now there would be six of these on the Black Sea, and the series would be continued for the Pacific Fleet!

    there were no weapons, nor batteries

    I'm not good at nuclear submarines, are there batteries too?
    And in French nuclear submarines, the reactor is refueled for the entire service life. Like Ohio or Virginia.
    Namely, this boat is the youngest in the series.
