01.04.2020: Explosion auf indischem Atom-U-Boot
« am: 14 April 2020, 19:08:56 »
Hallo zusammen,

evtl. schon bekannt:

A sailor has died following an accident on board an Indian Navy nuclear submarine berthed alongside at the Ship Building Centre (SBC) in Vishakhapatnam.

The incident, which took place on 1 April, involved a material failure of the high-pressure air system (HPAS) in the forward area of the submarine, which resulted in an explosion that fatally injured the sailor, local newspaper Times of India reported. The platform has not yet been identified. India builds and maintains its strategic submarines at the SBC.

India has only two operational nuclear submarines: INS Chakra , an 'Akula'-class nuclear-powered attack submarine on lease from Russia until 2022, and INS Arihant , India's first indigenously built ballistic missile submarine, which has been operational since 2016.
