L & T’s floating dock for navy

In one of its significant achievements in ship building business, engineering and construction major Larsen & Toubro has launched a floating dock (FDN-2), designed and built for the Indian Navy at the company’s greenfield shipyard at Kattupalli, near Chennai.

The Ministry of Defence mandated L&T in May 2015 to design and build the FDN- 2 valued Rs.468 crore. On completion of its launch at Kattupalli, FDN-2 would be put through a series of harbour trials before delivery to the Navy. 

Once operationalised, it would enhance the technical repair infrastructure of the Navy for ships based at the Andaman & Nicobar Islands as well as for visiting Naval ships. “While winning our first mandate from the Indian Navy was satisfying, I am particularly delighted that we have also been able to execute and deliver the FDN-2 well within schedule.” S N Subrahmanyan, Managing Director (Designate) and President, Larsen & Toubro, said.

The Floating Dock, which is the first Naval shipbuilding project for L&T, is 185m long and 40m wide, and is designed for docking Indian Naval ships and submarines of up to 8000 tonne displacement with draughts of up to 7 m, during both day and night.

“It is an affirmation of the in-house capabilities and track record of L&T that we are launching the FDN-2 for the Indian Navy ahead of schedule today, as a sequel to having already delivered 32 interceptor boats to Indian Coast Guard,” said J D Patil, Senior Executive Vice President & Whole time Director (Designate) - Defence, 

Larsen & Toubro. L&T has also been mandated by the Coast Guard to design and build seven Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs). Two of these OPVs are to be launched in the second half of this financial year, on schedule.

L&T has invested around Rs.5000 crore in the Kattupalli shipyard. The facility had an accumulated loss of Rs.2500 crore. However, it is hopeful of achieving break even in the next three years.
