4000 ton warship crashes sideways in Mumbai dockyard killing 2 navy sailors

India's prized warship INS Betwa, a guided missile frigate, tipped over and crashed to its side at the Mumbai dockyard on Monday, in what the navy described as an "unprecedented and sad" incident. Two sailors have died while 14 others have been rescued with minor injuries.

The 3,850-ton ship is lying on its side at the naval dockyard. It was docked for underwater repairs. Around 2 pm, while the ship was being returned to the water - a process that involves tipping it - the system snagged and the entire ship fell sideways. The main mast of the ship broke.

"This is a very big situation for the navy as this has never happened before... The incident occurred during undocking ...it is suspected that dock blocks mechanism failed," said navy spokesperson Captain DK Sharma.


It is not clear yet how the massive 126 m long vessel, commissioned into the navy in 2004, will be set right again.

The INS Betwa, one of the key warships of the Western Naval Command, is armed with Uran anti-ship missiles, Barak 1 surface-to-air missiles and torpedoes. It is the third Indian warship involved in a major accident while docked since 2011.

yes, I can see the pic. How the F does this happen, isn't it supposed to be secured?

I'd think super costly systems would be conked and a very costly repair.

Naval ship may lie on its side for 6 months, Rs 200cr needed to lift it

Need to investigate the cause of the accident, is it that proper procedures were not followed to secure the ship, or that inferior or aging materials/mechanisms were used.. should study and find out. May be corruption has caused this accident. Sometimes even inaction or official delays cause such accidents.. thus causing loss of life and costly salvage/repairs.

There was this planetarium built in Lucknow in the late 90s, the building looked majestic .. the projection machines procured for hundreds of crores were not properly stored and water seepage from the ceiling caused them to get conked out. Every time we drove by it I'd wonder when it would open.. My father always said it may never see the light of day.

UP is Ulta Pradesh. When we were there in late 70s, the rented house built by housing board (welfare state you see) had bolts and handles that would break very easily. Anyone been to 'avas vikas colony' (i think it is called Rajajipuram now). The postman used to open important letters and demand money to deliver them.
It is the motivation. It must have been built by the welfare state. Now, had the planetarium been operated by a private party and its source of income was tickets, they would have taken care to ensure such a thing wont happen.

I found a news clip about the planetarium I mentioned.. looks like it's been operational since 2003, took 22 years.

Lucknow city finally gets a planetarium

Stars finally shone bright and clear at the inauguration of the Indira Gandhi Planetarium in the city on Thursday. The controversial planetarium took almost 22 years to get its infrastructure readied along with installation of equipments.

The planetarium has a seating capacity of 168 people. A main star field projector G-1518 of Goto Optical which has more than 100 small projectors installed in it, is placed at the centre of the planetarium. At the periphery of the dome, several macro and micro projectors are put up for a clear and synchronised on-screen demonstration. The amount spent on the planetarium till date is Rs 22.50 crore. The equipments were provided by two international companies Goto Opticals of Japan and Barco of Belgium.

22.5 crore in 2003 would be I don't know.. but much more in today's money.

Looks like Jupiter with Saturn Rings. Wonder who designed it.
