Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) is in the final stages of constructing its expansive drydock facility at the Ravipuram shipyard in Kochi, India. Anticipated to be operational by June 2024, this drydock boasts the capability to host vessels with a docking displacement of up to 70,000 tonnes and is poised to play a pivotal role in the assembly of India’s third indigenous aircraft carrier, IAC-III.

With an investment of Rs 1,799 crore, the drydock features a distinctive ‘stepped’ layout and is designed to endure for a remarkable 100 years. Initially conceptualized for the proposed IAC-II aircraft carrier, intended to surpass the size of the current INS Vikrant in the Indian Navy, a modification in plans occurred due to budgetary considerations. Consequently, the Navy opted for a sister ship of INS Vikrant, a 44,000-ton displacement aircraft carrier.

The newly completed drydock is set to serve as the primary manufacturing hub for IAC-III, India’s third aircraft carrier. IAC-III is positioned to succeed the Russian-supplied INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier, with the transition expected to take place post-2035. Currently advancing through the advanced stages of design and development, IAC-III represents a significant milestone in India’s naval capabilities, with the completed drydock playing a vital role in its construction.
