India is all set to construct a special dock for high-capacity aircraft carriers at the existing premises of Cochin Shipyard Limited. The new dry dock will cost an estimated $270 million. The objective is to augment the shipbuilding/ship repair capacity essentially required to tap the market potential by building specialized and technologically advanced large vessels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels, higher-capacity domestic aircraft carriers, jackup rigs, drill ships, large dredgers and larger vessels, as well as by repairing offshore platforms. Moreover India is planning to produce its domestic aircraft carrier Vishal, which is being designed to be between 60,000 and 70,000 tons.
