DECCAN CHRONICLE | DC Correspondent
Chennai: US Navy Ship Salvor, a Safeguard-class rescue and salvage ship, arrived at Larsen and Toubro's Kattupalli shipbuilding yard near here for repairs under the Master Ship Repair Agreement (MSRA) signed last month between India and the US, a senior official of L&T said on Monday.
The USNS Salvor was welcomed with a ceremony at the shipyard on Monday, and it is the first ship to arrive after the signing of the MSRA.
The five-year agreement will see India’s leading private defence company repair the US vessels, said Executive Vice President and Head L&T Defense Arun Ramchandani.
