Vice Admiral inaugurates Naval Jetty at Nicobar island

Vice Admiral Sarma is seen inaugurating the extension of jetty at Andaman Nicobar Naval Command

A major Naval project of ‘Extension of Jetty’ at the Naval Wharf at the Andaman Nicobar base was inaugurated by Chief of Materiel of Indian Navy Vice Admiral SR Sarma today.


The 230-meter long jetty is one of the larger marine infrastructure projects being undertaken at Andaman and Nicobar Command both in terms of magnitude and technical complexity. The jetty will enable mooring alongside the Floating Dock and will significantly boost the ship berthing and maintenance capability of the Tri-Service Command.

The project was completed within stringent timelines of just about three years despite restrictions due to the nationwide Covid-19 lockdown in 2020.

Chief of HQ Staff at Andaman and Nicobar Command Rear Admiral Suraj Berry and Chief Engineer, Andaman & Lakshadweep Harbour TN Krishnamoorthy Works were present on the occasion.
