Brazil's Rousseff inaugurates nuclear sub shipyard

President Dilma Rousseff (L) listens to a Brazilian Marine officer in front of board representing a naval shipyard where a nuclear sub will be built, in Itaguai, on December 12, 2014Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff inaugurated Friday a naval shipyard that will oversee construction of a nuclear-powered submarine and four others to patrol Brazil’s long coastline and deepwater oil reserves. She noted Brazil was progressing toward becoming part of a “select group” of countries along with Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, whose navies have nuclear-propelled submarines at their disposal. Brazil has about 8,500 kilometres (5,300 miles) of coastline. The new submarines — the first one is 45 percent ready — will replace five that Brazil developed with Germany in the 1980s.
