    All is set for commissioning ceremony of Indian Navy’s fourth fleet tanker INS Shakti, scheduled to take place on Saturday, at the naval dockyard.

    Admiral Nirmal Verma, the chief of the Naval Staff arrived here on a two-day visit to Easter Naval Command for witnessing the commissioning of the tanker.

    The construction of INS Shakti commenced in November 2009 at the Fincantieri shipyard, Italy.

    The ship was formally handed over to the Indian Navy on September 23, in under two years. The ship is 175 metres in length and 32 metres wide. INS Shakti is one of the largest ships of the Indian Navy.

    The ship is fitted with a credible self defence capability and an indigenous Anti Missile Defence Chaff System.

    INS Shakti is the third tanker of the same name with earlier two ships having served the nation with pride.

    The induction of INS Shakti into naval service will be an important leap for the India Navy as the ship enhances the reach of the Navy well beyond the limits of the Indian Ocean and would provide support to the expanding fleet of the Indian Navy.
