NS Betwa, a P-16A Class frigate has been made upright by the unstinted efforts put in by the Naval Dockyard, Mumbai and the salvage firm M/s Resolve Marine, specially contracted for the operation.
Guided missile frigate INS Betwa which suffered a mishap at the Naval dockyard in Mumbai while it was at the dry dock in December, is back on even keel, Navy sources said
Missile frigate INS Betwa, which tipped over while undocking on December 5 last year, is likely to be set upright in another two months as the Indian Navy on Monday signed a contract with a marine salvage firm for ‘righting’ the boat.
The Indian Navy is set to sign a contract with a foreign salvage firm for around Rs20 crore to make the frigate-class warship INS Betwa upright and get her back floating.
Inflated floats have been brought in to ‘right’ the capsized Indian Navy Ship (INS) Betwa, the guided missile frigate that met with a freak accident last month killing two sailors on-board.
