The Indian Navy supplied help to a stranded cargo ship with seven Indian crew members because it was drifting within the Gulf of Oman following failure of its propulsion and energy technology techniques, officers mentioned on Friday.
The cargo ship was going from Oman to Iraq, they mentioned.
The Indian Navy supplied help to the stranded ship MV Nayan on Thursday after its frigate INS Talwar obtained a name from the cargo vessel requesting for technical help, the officers mentioned.
INS Talwar was deployed within the Gulf of Oman.
They mentioned the cargo ship was drifting at sea since March 9 owing to failure of its propulsion, energy technology and navigational techniques.
“Based on preliminary aerial assessment about the distress of MV Nayan, the Indian Naval ship dispatched its VBSS (Visit Board, Search and Seizure) team along with a technical team by boat to offer assistance to the vessel that had seven Indians as her crew,” an Indian Navy spokesperson mentioned.
The official mentioned the naval groups labored repeatedly for seven hours on board MV Nayan to operationalise her key tools similar to mills, steering pump, sea water pump, compressor and predominant engine.
“The naval team also assisted in operationalising navigation equipment like GPS and navigation lights before MV Nayan could proceed for her next port,” he mentioned.
