New Delhi, July 14/Nationalturk – In yet another giant leap in science and technology, India now has first locally built Research Ship named “Sindhu Sadhana”, which is equipped with a number of laboratories for data collection, echo sounders, weather station and air quality monitors.
The first indigenously built research ship “Sindhu Sadhana” is a multi-disciplinary research vessel equipped with a number of laboratories for data collection, echo sounders, acoustic doppler, profiler, autonomous weather station, air quality monitors and a host of other world-class latest equipments in the field of ocean technology and ocean research.
The research ship was recently acquired by the CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography.
Indian Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Jitendra Singh dedicated the research ship to nation during ceremony held at the Marmugao Harbour of Goa yesterday.
‘It will enhance capability of Indian oceanographers’
On salient features of the new research ship, Indian minister said, it will greatly enhance the capabilities of Indian oceanographers to make multi-disciplinary observations with a capability to predict the future changes in oceanographic processes, thus generating enormous inputs, which will benefit not only India but also the number of other nations and seas around India.
He said the new research ship will greatly enhance Indian oceanographers’ capabilities to predict future changes in oceanographic processes.
“Initiatives like locally building research ship will also help an economic breakthrough in the area of shipping, fishing, exploration for oil and natural gas, submarine pipeline etc,” added Singh.
He said after the successful launch of PSLV-23 satellite in space from Sriharikota in Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh on June 30, launch of research ship into the ocean is the second major initiative in the field of science and technology of the new government, which took power seven weeks ago.
