In 1938 the Gremikha village appeared close to Yokanga navy base. In this area in 1960s the Ostrovnoy village appeared and the infrastructure of the region started to develop. Submariners of the Flotilla made a lot for the development of marine power of the country. In the period of active building (60-70s) on the territory of the Kola Peninsula the power strategic military base of the Northern Fleet was created. It is the only unfreezing port of the Kola Peninsula, which has the outlet to the Arctic Ocean.

The town of Ostrovnoy is a Closed Administrational and Territorial District (ZATO - zakrytye administrativno-territorial'nye obrazovaniia). The territory of the town of Ostrovnoy is washed by the Barents and the White Seas. There is no industrial production in the town. Proceeding from the geographical position Ostrovnoy the motor shi "Klavdiya Elanskaya" is the only connecting link between Murmansk and Arkhangelsk. Ostrovnoy rents this motor ship at PC 'Murmansk Shipping Company".

Ostrovnoy is an inspectable submarine facility under the START-1 agreement. The United States and the Soviet Union signed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) on 31 July 1991. When START entered into force on 05 December 1994, the signatories began to implement the Treaty's complex set of intrusive inspection and verification measures. As part of START's verification provisions, each signatory was required to declare all facilities related to ICBMs, submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), and heavy bombers. The former Soviet Union (FSU) has declared over five dozen START-inspectable sites in all categories, including five SLBM facilities and six submarine facilities.
