The head Spanish submarine Isaac Peral of the S-80 Plus project was launched 16 years after the laying

The Spanish Navy will soon receive a new large non-nuclear submarine (NNS). The launching ceremony of the lead submarine of the national project S-80 Plus (S-80A) took place on April 22, 2021 at the shipyard in Cartagena.


The head large submarine S 81 Isaac Peral was deflated 16 years after laying. The submarine will be completed afloat, the launch of the factory sea trials is scheduled for January 2022, the transfer to the Spanish fleet - for 2023.

The ceremony was attended by King Philip VI of Spain and the Spanish royal family, which speaks of the importance of the event. The thing is that the program for the construction of non-nuclear submarines for the Spanish Navy has been very long. In 2004, the shipbuilding company Navantia pledged for 2 billion euros to build a series of new submarines of the S-80 project in order to replace 4 diesel-electric submarines of the Agosta type of the Spanish Navy.

The delivery of the lead submarine was planned in 2011. However, miscalculations in the design led to an increase in the weight of the submarine and problems with surfacing. The project had to be revised and now, with a delay of 10 years, the lead submarine, laid down in 2005, was launched.

S-80 project diesel-electric submarines are 80,8 meters long and 11,68 meters wide. The displacement of ships is 3 thousand tons. S-80s can reach speeds of up to 19 knots. The submarines are armed with six torpedo tubes of a caliber of 533 mm for torpedoes and anti-ship cruise missiles.

All submarines of the S-80 project will receive an air-independent power plant (VNEU), developed by Navantia in conjunction with Abengoa. The third submarine of the project will receive the first VNEU; it will be installed on the head and the first serial VNEU after the submarine is put into operation.

        I watched the video. No guys, this is not a show with us, we learned from them, but we still have not honed the skill of showing off when launching the boat, so many speeches, both the priest and the bottle were broken, but the boat remained standing, they were not launched into the water.

        Purely they have there,

        Oleg, thanks for the video. Very informative ...
        1. The bottle was not champagne, but red wine ... I did not notice that the wine got on the body. As if the one did not "take offense" at such neglect of traditions ...
        2. The Infanta became the godmother of the boat ... And she, apparently, is still a girl ... This, too, is somehow out of character ...
        3. The boat stood with its bow to the water, the collected stern was not shown even once ... Although, in the workshop, the docked stern end, well, very much resembled a "tunnel" of a water cannon ...
        If this is not even so, then they, nevertheless, have never shown the screw ... And this says a lot to the initiated.
        4. The video testified about the "baptism" of the S81, and not about the descent of the S80 ... In fact, this is rolling out the hull from the workshop to free up the building space.
        Well, we will wait for information about our 677D ... Well, I do not believe that our Kulibins are dumber than the Spaniards ...
        AHA.

    They had another Peral in 1889. It lasted a year, then it became fountains.

            That's just Russia can afford a leisurely construction, but Spain simply does not have such a margin of safety and time))) How many submarines do they have? How much will be written off in the next 16 years of construction of the second submarine? laughing

    Spain is not the wonderland of the Baltics, where everything is done too slowly. However, the Spaniards in this matter are similar to the Balts.

    Well, here we are suffering that we have been building ships at our shipyards for a long time. It turns out that this is a worldwide trend.

    Launching and taking into operation are two big differences. Perhaps people are confusing launching with the complete manufacture of the ship. And transferring it to the customer.
    So, there is a double feeling here ...
    Once they were lowered, the hull passed mooring tests presumably.
    But this is just the case. What will happen next? ...

    Displacement 3k tons - is it above water? And the speed of 19 knots - underwater? And for 3k tonnes of displacement 6 torpedo tubes is not enough?
    But they built it quickly. In just 16 years. laughing This is not "bast Russia"

        In Russia, they build much faster, and then all sorts of poorly equipped with a brain scream, they say, shame, it is necessary faster, over there in the bright west they rivet 100 of them a year, and in bast shoes in Russia, 1 in 5 years. And then such a blow to the snot ... In the bright west, diesel-electric submarines were built for 16 years. By the way, only the lazy did not laugh at them. Because you need to be able to do it like this in a project.

    Spain has been a great maritime power for many centuries! They knew how to build beautiful ships, and the Spaniards were fearless sailors! And they did not unlearn! Bien hecho España!
