In February, general director of the Zvezdochka shipyard Vladimir Nikitin, said the it was necessary to finish the repair of the three submarines Voronezh, Kaluga and Novomoskovsk during 2009. BarentsObserver wrote about the modernization schedules with reference to Itar-Tass.

Today, the same Niktin says to Itar-Tass that Novomoskovsk will be transferred back to the Northern fleet by 2011.
– We will finish the scheduled repairs and modernization of the rocket carriers for this submarine-class, general director Nikitin says to Itar-Tass.

The repair and modernization of Novomoskovsk started in 2008.

Russia has seven Delta-Iv class strategic submarines, all within the Northern fleet. Four of them are in active service; one is converted to special operations; while two are in for overhaul at the Zvezdochka plant.
