Indian Naval ship Nireekshak on training mission in Sri Lanka

INS Nireekshak, an advanced diving support ship of the Indian Navy, reached at the Trincomalee port of Sri Lanka on Monday. The ship will be involved in facilitating diving training for the Sri Lankan Navy, the Indian High Commission said.  

As part of the ‘Neighbourhood First’ policy, the Indian navy ship will be deployed in Sri Lanka for 10 days. During these ten days, the ship will facilitate “Mixed Gas Diving training for the Sri Lanka Navy”. The diving support ship has two 6-men recompression chambers and one 3-men diving bell. 

The Commanding Officer of the Indian Naval ship, Commander Mohammad Ikram called on Commander of Eastern Naval Area, Rear Admiral PDS Dias, and held meeting on the training.  

“The ship is fully capable to undertake rescue operations from a submarine in distress and training of saturation divers,” the Indian High Commission in the island nation said. 

INS Nireekshak had earlier visited Trincomalee in September 2019 for a similar training deployment for Sri Lankan Navy divers.
