«Over the past two years, St. Petersburg shipbuilders launched five ships, four new ones were laid and three were handed over to customers. The St. Petersburg shipbuilding cluster is in demand, has the most advanced technologies and not only builds ships, but also supplies equipment and advanced systems», - Alexander Beglov, the acting governor of St. Petersburg, stated at the opening ceremony.

The commander-in-chief of the navy Nikolai Evmenov also addressed the audience with a welcoming speech. «The presence of the navy means the power of the country, being a strong state.

A director of the shipbuilding industry department of the Ministry of industrial trade Boris Kabakov told that over 20 events, including four scientific conferences, will be held within the business program of the Salon. Visitors’ attention was directed to a new air-independent submarine «Amur-1650» by central constructing bureau «Rubin». The submarine has a smaller displacement compared to the submarines of «kilo» class.

And most importantly- the boat is not nuclear, its main power source is a battery. «It is the first in Russia, — shared Igor Molchanov, a chief designerThere are similar in Germany, Sweden, and China. The boat itself is ready. Now it is at the stage of «bringing everything to mind». We need such submarines for use in inland seas and near coastal zones
