    Navy and Coast Guard to ink Rs 1,000-crore MoUs


    In order to build dedicated jetties for parking ships and submarines on ports across Gujarat, both the Indian Navy and the Coast Guard will be signing MoUs worth over Rs 1,000 crore with the Gujarat government. This is the biggest quantum of MoUs to be signed by these two defence arms in the Vibrant summits held so far, official sources said.
    Indian Navy which recently commissioned a new base INS Sardar Patel at Porbandar will be developing the “eastern break-water at the port” with a proposed investment of Rs 600 crore. The Navy will also be building a Marine Control Centre in Gujarat, state government sources said.

    Similarly, the Indian Coast Guard will be investing over Rs 400 crore in building jetties at different ports across Gujarat, especially those operated by private players. Coast Guard will be signing tripartite agreements with Gujarat Maritime Board and private port operators like Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd, and Reliance Defence and Engineering Ltd for building jetties at Mundra and Pipavav, respectively. The Coast Guard will also be constructing a jetty at GMB-owned port at Okha.
    The private players who will be inking MoUs for coastal security include Shapoorji Pallonji, Ramana Safety and System Pvt Ltd, Security Consultant Associa-tion (for setting up a maritime security institute) and Radcomm System Corporation (scanning of sea freight containers).

    The fire was controlled and no one was injured.

    Navy spokesperson Captain D.K. Sharma said the fire broke out in the gyro compartment of the ship.

    "The fire was controlled and extinguished by the ship's staff and Dockyard fire station," he said. The fire is suspected to have occurred during welding work.

    INS Khanderi, Indian Navy's Second Scorpene Class Submarine To Be Launched Tomorrow
    INDIATIMES | JANUARY 10, 2017

    Khanderi, the second Kalvari class submarine, will be launched at the Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) here on January 12.
    Union Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre will preside over the function to initiate the launch of Khanderi (Yard 11876).

    The launch will start a trail of events, which will lead to the separation of the submarine from the pontoon on which it is being assembled and its final setting afloat, an official release said.
    "India is among few countries in the world which produces conventional submarines. Six submarines are being built at MDL in collaboration with M/s DCNS of France, as a part of Project 75 of Indian Navy. The first submarine of the class (Kalvari) is completing its sea trials and will be commissioned shortly into the Indian Navy," the release said.
    Indian Navy's Submarine arm will complete 50 years on December 8 this year. Submarine Day is celebrated every year to commemorate the birth of the submarine arm with induction of the first submarine, erstwhile INS Kalvari, into the Indian Navy on December 8, 1967, it said.

    The attack can be launched with torpedoes, as well as tube-launched anti-ship missiles, whilst underwater or on surface. The Stealth features will give it an invulnerability, unmatched by many submarines.

    The submarine is designed to operate in all theatres, including the tropics. All means and communications are provided to ensure interoperability with other components of a Naval Task Force.
    It can undertake multifarious types of missions typically undertaken by any modern submarine i.e Anti-Surface warfare, Anti-Submarine warfare, Intelligence gathering, Mine Laying, Area Surveillance etc.
    It is built according to the principle of Modular Construction, which involves dividing the submarine into a number of sections and outfitting them concurrently.
    The equipment is mounted in a special manner and then embarked into the sections. The complexity of the task increases exponentially as it involves laying kilometres of cabling and piping in extremely congested compartments.
    All equipment has been installed in the submarine, with 95 percent cabling and piping also being completed.

    Kalvari Class Submarines a Key Milestone in Self-Reliance and Indigenisation for Country: Dr Subhash Bhamre

    Submarine ‘Khanderi’ Launched
    Khanderi, the second of Indian Navy’s Scorpene’ class stealth submarine, was ‘launched’ today by the Hon’ble Raksha Rajya Mantri, Dr Subhash Bhamre paving the way for her sea trials. Admiral Sunil Lanba, Chief of the Naval Staff and a host of other dignitaries witnessed the launch at Mazagon Dock Shipyard Limited today.
    The submarine is expected to be delivered to Navy by the year end. She has been christened after her illustrious predecessor, an erstwhile ‘Foxtrot’ class submarine decommissioned in 1989, which is as per the traditions of Indian Navy. The construction of six Scorpene submarines is presently being progressed at Mazagon Dock Shipyard Limited (MDL), under Project 75 with Transfer of Technology from M/s DCNS, France as the Collaborator. The first of the class submarine, Kalvari is presently undergoing sea trials and likely to be commissioned into Navy by Mid 2017. These submarines, post induction, would form the core of Navy’s conventional Submarine Arm.
    Speaking on the occasion Dr Subhash Bhamre said that Project 75 Kalvari is a key milestone in self reliance and indigenisation for the country. Admiral Sunil Lanba, Chief of the Naval Staff said during his address that the fact that Submarine ‘’Khanderi” compares with the best in the world, speaks highly of the experience and expertise our shipbuilders have gained over the years. He added that as Indian Navy celebrates Golden Jubilee of the submarine arm in 2017, the induction of Project 75 submarines would mark the beginning of a new chapter in our submarine capabilities.
    The launching of Khanderi also marks a critical milestone event for the Shipyard which earlier has delivered two Shishumar class submarines in the 90’s and has now strengthened its position as a submarine building yard for Indian Navy. Started as a small dry dock facility for East India Company, MDL today has established itself as a forefront Defence Public Sector Undertaking, with indigenous construction of several ships and submarines for Navy such as P 15 B Destroyers and P 17 A class stealth Frigates being the latest.

    Navy inks Rs 20 crore contract with global firm to lift INS Betwa
    Rajat Pandit | TNN | Jan 14, 2017, 10.03PM IST


    NEW DELHI: The Navy has inked a contract worth almost Rs 20 crore with an international salvage firm to lift the 3,850-tonne frigate INS Betwa, which had tipped over at the Mumbai naval dockyard on December 6, killing two sailors and injuring 14 others.
    Concurrently, the Navy has also completed its board of inquiry (BoI) headed by a Rear Admiral into the unprecedented mishap, during which the Brahmaputra-class frigate "slipped from her dock blocks", tilted and then crashed flat on her left (port) side while being undocked during a maintenance refit, said sources.
    "Strict action will be taken against the personnel, including the dock-masters, found guilty of lapses. But the BoI findings will have to be confirmed by higher authorities, first by the Western Naval Command at Mumbai and then by Navy headquarters in New Delhi," said a source.
    With the main naval dry dock at Mumbai blocked by INS Betwa, the Navy wants the frigate to be salvaged and made battle-ready to re-join the fleet as soon as possible. The salvage firm, Resolve Marine Group, has sought a month to mobilise its resources from different places as well as build the "required rigs and sponsons" for the complicated operation.
    "It should take another month after that to make the frigate upright," said the source. The mishap apparently occurred due to the miscalculation of the "load distribution equilibrium" required in the complex and delicate undocking procedure, leaving the frigate heavily damaged with at least 25% flooding in its compartments, as was reported by TOI earlier.
    The incident occurred when the process of flooding the dry dock was in progress after completion of the frigate's "underwater repair package". At that time, the dock also had missile boat INS Pralay, a tug and a Caisson lock-gate (large floating iron) in close vicinity of INS Betwa. Commissioned in July 2004, INS Betwa had begun the two-year medium maintenance refit at the dockyard in April last year.
