L&T Launches Floating Dock Built For Indian Navy

Larsen & Toubro announced the launch of a Floating Dock (FDN-2) designed and built for the Indian Navy at the company’s greenfield shipyard at Kattupalli, near Chennai. This marks a significant achievement for L&T’s shipbuilding arm in design, construction and project management of defence vessels.

L&T was mandated by the Ministry of Defence in May 2015 to design and build the FDN-2 for an order value of Rs 468 crore. The Floating Dock will be delivered at Port Blair well within contracted schedule, reaffirming L&T’s capabilities to execute and deliver defence projects on time using Indian design, indigenous technologies and construction skills.

On completion of its launch at Kattupalli, FDN-2 would be out 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.
