Submarine hitches a ride

June 28 - Hindustan Cargo Ltd (HCL) has handled the shipment of submarine weighing 2,325 tonnes which is heading from Visakhapatnam Port to Severodvinsk, Russia for a refit.

The submarine measuring 74.50 m in length, 9.90 m in width and 14.73 m in height was loaded on RollDock Shipping's RollDock Sun.

The project was awarded jointly by the Ministry of Defence (Navy) to Hindustan Cargo Limited and RollDock Shipping.

After two days of deck preparation, the loading of the submarine was complicated as a result of the draught of the submarine, as well as the swell caused by the rising tide. This made ballasting work quite slow.

RollDock Sun sailed on June 25. It is on its way to Russia via the Cape of Good Hope and the total transit time is expected to be 42-47 days.

Hindustan Cargo Ltd is the Indian member of the Worldwide Project Consortium network for project forwarding companies.
