MV Olympic Canyon Helps in TRV 72 Wreck Search

The Indian Navy had sought assistance of M/s Reliance Industries Ltd in undertaking underwater videography of TRV 72 , the torpedo recovery vessel that sank about 38 nautical miles off Visakhapatnam coast on November 6.

On November 18, 2014 MV Olympic Canyon, equipped with an ROV that can operate up to 1000 meters depth, performed a videography mission.

MV Olympic Canyon was chartered by M/s Reliance Industries for offshore work in the Krishna-Godavari Basin.

Videography by ROV was completed by the evening. The wreck of TRV 72 has been observed to be in upright position in about 370 meters depth of water.

It is now planned to analyse the captured video footage and determine further course of action.
