Rubin Central Design Bureau is creating an air-independent power plant (VNEU) for non-nuclear submarines with hydrogen production from diesel. About it RIA News Andrey Baranov, deputy general director of the bureau, said.

VNEU increases the stealth of the submarine, gives it the ability to stay under water without surfacing to charge the batteries. Central Design Bureau “Rubin” creates a new installation.

“We are creating VNEU based on fuel cells with the production of hydrogen from diesel fuel. We get water from oxygen and hydrogen, while generating electricity,” said the deputy general director of the Rubin Central Design Bureau.

The design office offers to receive hydrogen from diesel fuel. This approach is promising in terms of ease of basing, stealth and other important parameters for the fleet, Baranov emphasized.
