Indian Navy for modernisation of dockyards
By SP's Special Correspondent

January 28, 2015: With an expanding fleet and berthing requirements, the Indian Navy is looking to modernise its dockyards in a big way to take on the additional burden coming its way in terms of logistics, placing and repair of vessels on both sea-boards. The Indian Navy is looking to augment and modernise its dockyards in Mumbai and Visakhapatnam and ship repair yards in Kochi, Karwar and Port Blair on a fast-track basis. The navy has published a list of equipment it requires, including heavy duty cranes, lifts and other heavy equipment, that will be used in naval dockyards and naval ship repair yards to provide shore support to the ships and submarines berthed in harbour. The equipment includes five 75-ton cranes, one each for Mumbai and Karwar, and three for Visakhapatnam. The project is intended to be executed on a turnkey basis, with shortlisted vendors required to supply all the equipment under a single contract on a turnkey basis. Capacity augmentation and turnaround at dockyards has been an issue for the navy for years now, but with a rapidly expanding fleet that is expected to be augmented further with both small and medium surface combatants in the near term, the pressure is being increasingly felt by the navy to move quickly.
