INS Darshak Wraps Up Hydrographic Survey in Tanzania

INS Darshak, a hydrographic survey ship of Indian Eastern Naval Command has completed the hydrographic survey of Tanga Port, Tanzania.

This survey was undertaken for the Government of Tanzania, under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed for foreign cooperation in the field of hydrography between Tanzania and India.

On completion of the survey, the preliminary navigational chart of Tanga Harbour was handed over to the Government of Tanzania.

The existing navigational charts of approaches to Tanga Port are based on primitive survey and a fresh survey was considered inescapable, Indian Navy said.

INS Darshak, which was in Tanzania for over one month to undertake the survey, utilized bathymetric data collection, sound velocity analysis, multi-beam and single beam echo sounder, total stations and aerial reconnaissance by helicopter to complete the task.

After the completion of the work in Tanzania, INS Darshak is now on her way to Mauritius to undertake another hydrographic survey, Indian Navy said.
