Second Pontoon Docked Alongside Giant-4 With Kursk Attached

The second pontoon has been docked alongside the Giant-4 barge with the Kursk sub attached. After the mooring of the second pontoon to the two-vessel system, experts will examine filling and drainage pipes, as well as the docking equipment. Chief of the press service at the Russian Northern Fleet Vladimir Navrotsky reported on Thursday that docking and testing of equipment may take three days. Nevertheless, the decision to install the Kursk nuclear submarine into the floating dock in Roslyakovo will be made only next week. "There are no exact terms yet," Navrotsky stated.
