Large scale exercise in Eastern Sea.......
CSL while periodic refit of Vikramaditya. Didnt know that the entire crew stays at/near the shipyard doing refit and shipyard has to upgrade its facilities to accomodate them
"Another point of anxiety and a major concern, which was repeatedly discussed in all meetings, was the availability and hygienic condition of toilet facilities. This was taken up as major challenge and a concentrated efforts were put in by the agencies involved. Firstly all the toilet complexes in and around the repair dock was identified, earmarked and numbered for INS Vikramaditya. All toilets were given facelift including total renovation of few along with painting and upkeep of the surroundings. Additional containerized toilets were also brought in to cater for such a huge ship company. The cleaning pattern was completely changed with innovative ideas and manning round the clock to meet highest standards of hygiene during INS Vikramaditya stay was organized. The cooking and the dining facility of a ship company consisting of 90 Officers and more than 1100 sailors within CSL was addressed for the first time in CSL. Additional dining facility was setup on top of the north canteen including upkeep and maintenance of existing galley at ground floor. Separate area for additional washing machines, water coolers etc were also provided along with north galley. The entire ship company was transported from the shipyard to their residential accommodation in more than 30 vehicles without causing any hindrance to the public through M.G Road and Thevara Junction during the peak hours was another example of the coordinated effort of the Shipyard. The entry and exit of all the VVIP's, VIPs, OEM representatives and various contractors working on Vikramaditya was conducted smoothly without any aberrations, which was expected while handling such large crowd. This is one of such event where several uncertainties and anxieties were put to rest with dedicated and collective team work with professionalism leading to achieving several records. Maximum tonnage of the vessel, maximum draft of the vessel, maximum length of the vessel and above all INS Vikramaditya in any Indian Shipyard for the First time and the list is much more. I should say this is yet another example of CSL Magic of team work."
Blast happened at the rigs. The carrier is surely safe. But the accident itself is sad. Om Shanti.http://zeenews.india.com/india/blast-at-cochin-shipyard-kills-4-injures-11-2080788.html
Blast at Cochin Shipyard. Hope IAC-1 was not around.
Hope its work is not affected
That's the true colour of the steel plates. And yeah, thats rust. maintaining ships is tough in warm water seas, especially ones that are as saline as the Indian Ocean.
I know that. I meant why aren't those at shipyards for maintenance.That's the true colour of the steel plates. And yeah, thats rust. maintaining ships is tough in warm water seas, especially ones that are as saline as the Indian Ocean.
The first looks to be Gomati/Brahmaputra class. The second looks like a Talwar class.
Could it be INS Betwa that got overturned during launch from dry dock?The first looks to be Gomati/Brahmaputra class.
The naval dockyard does indeed do the periodic maintenance. Major mid life upgrades and refits are carried out at Mazgaon and other ship builders.I know that. I meant why aren't those at shipyards for maintenance.
Does the Navy dockyard do maintenance? Like Coloring etc. Bcoz that paint looks deliberately scraped off.
Hope Karwar gets new piers soon and a two parallel runway airbase Mumbai dockyard seems like an ant infront of Karwar and Vishakhapatnam dockyard.
Btw Varsha seems to be in full accelerator mode;p
Let's agree with you for a moment.
