    Mishap in naval dockyard kills 4


    Four Navy personnel, including two officers, died when the flooding gate collapsed in the Ship Building Centre inside the naval dockyard in Vishakapatnam on Wednesday morning.

    The flooding gates are meant to take sea water into the dry dock. The flooding gate collapsed resulting in the death of four Navy personnel and severe injuries to one sailor, according to Navy Navy spokesman Commander T.L.P. Babu.

    Sad to hear the news but accidents do happen , important to take care of the wounded and the families of the dead.

    Support to the families must be provided immediately and political delays should be avoided is what we can wish.

    A Commander, Lieutenant Commander and a Master Chief were killed. Are these senior ranks or mid-level...?

    Also, could someone explain what is meant by 'taking sea water into dry dock'?

    I cannot comment on the rank bit.

    But taking sea water in can be explained , the dry docks work in a very similar manner if you have seen a hydro electric dam, the huge gates stop the water reserve.
    The ships are built on solid rails , most work done without water but at every level of work done a lot of tests , including the buoyancy tests , sea water which is held on reserve is let in via giant gates.

    As the amount of water needed to test is huge and reserving such a huge amount of water does exert a lot of pressure , for that there are various safety valves and techniques used to let the water pressure to optimized level.
    The accident today depicts that of a ship in sea and one of its rims burst open by the water force, the resulting disaster can be equated here as the flow of water nor the pressure will be optimized or under control.

    Hope i am right because i am not technically qualified to answer any further details of operation.

    just watch this

    this is done in control manner and now think if door that hold water collapse then water will come running with 5 times speed.

    wait a min.....INS Arihant is in harbour trials. So it must have been floated out by now. And Vishakapatnam builds only ATVs and maintains Submarines. So which submarine was floated out?

    Very sad. I'm posting two R.I.P.'s in successive days. And it's not looking good.



    A Commander usually commands a frigate, sub or destroyer; a Lt. Comm. is usually in charge of smaller ships like a minesweeper or naval patrol vessel or in command at an onshore site or location; a Master Chief is just above the Chief Petty Officer and is in charge of liasoning between the Commanding Officer and enlisted ranks at sea and of various administrative works onshore. A Commander is about equivalent in rank to a Lt. Col., a Lieutenant Commander to a Major and a Master Chief to a Subedar/Risaldar Major in the Army.

    ^^

    This news is not new, this has been told previously also that 3 hulls of Arihant class were in different level of construction. First one is lunched, this might be the second
