Team Gets Pat for INS Sindhukirti :-
New CMD of Hindustan Shipyard Ltd Rear Admiral L.V.S. Babu has appreciated the HS workforce for completing the medium refit and upgradation of EKM class submarine INS Sindhukirti. Addressing employees of HSL, Rear Admiral Babu praised the commitment and quality of work which resulted in defect-free first sortie and full power trials followed by clearance of check dive and deep dive of lNS Sindhukirti in the first attempt. He said that this placed the yard as a prime contender for undertaking Medium Refit Life Certification of EKM submarines, as well as construction of Project P-75(I) submarines.
In a major boost for both HSL and the lndian Navy, INS Sindhukirti had successfully completed its maiden deep dive trials recently without any major defects after medium repairs & modernisation at HSL. This evolution is of great significance as it certifies the high quality of repairs carried on the hull and associated systems by trained and experienced workmen of HSL adhering to stringent quality norms. “Though the yard took more time for refit than stipulated, it is worth mentioning that MR-Cum-Upgradation of INS Sindhukirti was the first of its kind undertaken by an Indian Shipyard with support from the Indian Navy. It is a noteworthy achievement.” Mr Babu said.
