“I can say that there is the attention of some countries on the purchase of this complex,” he said.
According to Tryapichnikov, “the first tests of a Russian-made air-independent power plant showed that it would not be inferior in its characteristics to foreign analogues”.
He noted that "the main advantage of an air-independent energy installation is an increase in the secrecy of a submarine."
The submarine "gets the opportunity to be under water without surfacing to charge batteries for a longer period - up to 2-3 weeks," added Ryapichnikov.
In December, Igor Vilnit, general director of the Rubin Central Clinical Hospital, reported on the completion of ground tests of the anaerobic plant.
“We have completed a full cycle of ground tests, and preparations are underway for sea trials, which are a mandatory step, they will begin in the Baltic Sea 2016,” said Vilnit.
