    CSL completes work on MODU

    Yard News // August 11, 2000
    Cochin Shipyard Ltd in India has completed repair work on ONGC's mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU) Sagar Vijay, finishing the work five weeks ahead of schedule, but says that capacity constraints at the yard are limiting the volume of ship repair workit undertakes.

    The MODU was dry-docked at CSL on 13 May for a special survey. Major work on the vessel included repairs to shafts, propellers, rudder, the overhaul of two alternators, structural repairs and surface preparation and coating.

    The Indian yard says it has also completed another job ahead of schedule, the Ethiopian vessel Andinet, and completed construction of two new build tugs for Kandla Port Trust no less than two months ahead of schedule.

    The management at the yard says it has approached the Indian government in order to gain permission to increase its repair capacity, and is seeking infrastructure status, which would enable it to raise funds at economical rates.
