Navy inducts deep submergence rescue vehicle, to get one more


The Indian Navy Wednesday inducted its first ‘Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle’ into service here and was in the process of acquiring one more soon to deploy the vessels permanently at Mumbai and Visakhapatnam.

With the DSRV’s induction, the Indian Navy has joined the select league of world navies that have an integral submarine rescue capability, Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba said after the induction at the Western Naval Command here.  The maiden trials of the DSRV were successfully completed on October 15.

“The DSRV (induction) is a landmark event and it marks the culmination of years of focused efforts of the Navy in acquiring niche submarine rescue capability.

With these capabilities, the Indian Navy has joined the select league of navies that operate such assets,” Admiral Lanba said.  Read More
