"The Severnaya Verf Shipyard in St. Petersburg has begun to equip the Gremyaschy corvette with domestic main engines made by the Kolomensky Zavod Plant to the Russian Navy’s specifications under the program on import substitution in surface combatant shipbuilding," the Defense Ministry says in its press release.

The ministry added that the engine was in production by Kolomensky Zavod and that its design had been improved. "In accordance with the specifications requirement issued by the Navy, the Almaz Design Bureau and Severnaya Verf Shipyard have made calculations allowing the effective integration of the Russian engines without affecting the corvette’s design characteristics," the ministry’s press office added, reminding that the cutting-edge warship would be launched in 2017.
