MOST IMPORTANT SUBMARINE FACTORY OF ITS TIME

One of Noblessner’s largest historical industrial buildings is the foundry. In the autumn of 2018, the renovation of the Noblessner foundry began and the building opened again in October 2019. PROTO Invention Factory is one of the most visited sites situated in the historic Noblessner Foundry. The history of the Noblessner shipyard goes back to 1912 when two Saint Petersburg businessmen built Tsarist Russia’s most important submarine factory here. They were Europe’s foremost oil tycoon Emanuel Nobel and the owner of Lessner machine works Arthur Lessner. Combining the surnames of the two men, the shipyard was named ‘Noblessner’.

Emanuel Nobel, the nephew of Alfred Nobel, who instituted the Nobel Prizes, built a total of 12 submarines here with his business partner Arthur Lessner, as part of a secret programme for the Imperial Russian Navy.
