   Hindustan Shipyard Ltd, achieved another milestone in submarine Repair capability by completing extensive repairs, upgrade, system integration and trials of INS Sindhuvir ahead of the contractual delivery period of February 09. This is a second such feat by the Shipyard, which had earlier completed refit of INS Astradharni 14 days ahead of schedule.
   Rear Admiral LV Sarat Babu(Retd) , Chairman and Managing Director, HSL said that the timely completion of refit was possible due to active involvement of Naval Dockyard, Visakhapatnam and support of Eastern Naval Command. Apart from this strong vendor base of about 70 MSMEs developed during the refit has cumulatively generated sizeable local revenue, employment and enhancement of skill.
   The chairman also mentioned that this puts HSL on a strong pedestal for undertaking future submarine projects like P75I construction, MRLC of Sindhugosh and other submarine refits by harnessing potential of Indian companies thus fostering “Make in India” intent.
