Vice Admiral Rajesh Pendharkar Visits L&T Kattupalli Shipbuilding Yard, Highlights Contributions to Atmanirbhar Bharat

In a strong show of support for India’s Make in India initiative, Vice Admiral Rajesh Pendharkar, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Eastern Naval Command (FOCINC ENC), paid a visit to the L&T Shipbuilding Yard in Kattupalli today.

The visit emphasized the critical role of the shipyard in strengthening India’s self-reliance in defense manufacturing, in line with the national vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat (Self-Reliant India).

Situated on the outskirts of Chennai, the L&T Shipbuilding Yard in Kattupalli has been a leader in India’s indigenous shipbuilding endeavors. During his visit, Vice Admiral Pendharkar received a detailed briefing on the yard’s capabilities, which include state-of-the-art facilities and advanced manufacturing processes.

The shipyard is adept at handling a diverse range of projects, from commercial vessels to sophisticated naval warships, significantly enhancing India’s maritime capabilities.

During his visit, Vice Admiral Pendharkar reviewed the ongoing warship construction projects, highlighting the yard’s crucial contribution to the Indian Navy’s modernization and expansion plans.

The briefings provided a clear view of the progress on these projects, showcasing the advanced stages of construction and the integration of cutting-edge technologies. These warships, once commissioned, will substantially boost the operational readiness and combat capabilities of the Indian Navy.

L&T Shipbuilding has been instrumental in this initiative, utilizing its expertise to develop complex maritime platforms domestically. The yard’s projects not only strengthen the Indian Navy’s fleet but also generate substantial employment and promote skill development in the region.
