New Delhi: India’s navy today said it has signed up with Kolkata-based Titagarh Wagons Limited to build five Diving Support Craft (DSCs). The value of the contract was not disclosed.

The purchase will add another milestone to the ‘Make in India‘ initiative of the Government of India, an Indian Navy statement said.

“The contract envisages construction of five DSCs. Once commissioned, the DSCs will meet the mission needs of Command Clearance Diving Teams, which are involved in providing diving assistance to all ships inside and close to harbour for underwater repair, maintenance and salvage.”

The craft will be fitted with state-of-the-art diving equipment and tools for performing diving operations, it said. “Diving Support Craft will be a game changer in conducting diving operations and will serve an ideal platform for conducting training of Indian Navy’s diving cadre.”
