PARIS, March 30—
Ten mariners died today within an accident aboard a French nuclear-propelled submarine which was getting involved in naval exercises within the Mediterranean off Toulon, the Defense Ministry announced.
A ministry spokesman stated the Emeraude, a couple,400-ton Rubis-class attack submarine, didn’t carry nuclear missiles which its 48-megawatt nuclear reactor wasn’t broken within the accident, which happened whenever a major leak released ruthless steam right into a turbine compartment.
"The steam is not radioactive," Rear Adm. Philippe Roy stated in a news conference within the southern port town of Toulon today.
Hrs following the accident, the navy remembered three other nuclear-propelled submarines — two in the Mediterranean and something in the Atlantic — pending an analysis. "We’re recalling them because we’re asking them questions by what happened," Admiral Roy stated. Commander One of the Dead
The Emeraude, that was commissioned in September 1988 and has a crew of 66, was submerged during the time of the accident today. Admiral Roy stated the vessel’s commanding officer — whom he didn’t name — and nine crew people died "very quicklyInch from asphyxiation once the steam pipe burst.
The submarine, which carries 18 torpedoes and Exocet antiship missiles, is driven with a pressurized water-cooled nuclear reactor. The reactor produces steam that produces the facility that drives two turbo-alternators. Certainly one of four in the class, the vessel includes a maximum speed of 25 knots.
Naval personnel stated the accident, the very first available on the French submarine, happened during routine inspection from the turbine compartment. They added the Emeraude could resurface and it was coming back to Toulon under its very own power.
The accident today may be the third involving a French nuclear submarine in under annually. Last August, the Rubis collided having a fully loaded oil tanker, Lyria, off Toulon. There have been no injuries, however, many oil pollution happened. In March this season, the Amethyste ran aground from the French Riviera and it was broken, though no injuries were reported.
Tonight President Francois Mitterrand and Pm Edouard Balladur sent their condolences to groups of the sufferers aboard the Emeraude. The Defense Minister, Francois Leotard, travelled to Toubon. Government officials stated both military and judicial queries would aim to identify the reason for the accident.
