"The Rolldock Star multipurpose semi-submersible heavy lift transport vessel carrying the Sindhukesari submarine left Mumbai for Severodvinsk on May 6," he said. According to the shipping company, the vessel is due to its destination on June 12.

As was reported in the press, the Severodvinsk-based shipyard in 2015 landed a contract for the medium repair and overhaul of the Sindhukesari within 27 months.

The Sindhukesari will be the sixth Russian-built Project 877EKM (NATO reporting name: Kilo-class) submarine to be upgraded by Zvyozdochka. Until now, the shipyard, a specialist in nuclear submarine repair and disposal, has modernized five Indian Navy boats since 1997 - the Sindhuvir, Sindhuratna, Sindhugosh, Sindhuvijay and Sindhurakshak. The company also has repaired and upgraded the INS Sindhukirti at her home station, Vizakhapatnam. The Sindhukesari build by the Leningrad Admiralty Association (now Admiralty Wharfs) in 1988 will undergo her second medium repair. Her first upgrade was in St. Petersburg in 1999-2001.
