SEVERODVINSK, Arkhangelsk Region, December 9. /TASS/. A special group of Russian specialists will be responsible for the post-guarantee maintenance of India’s aircraft carrier The Vikramaditya in India on the permanent basis, the general director of the naval shipyard Sevmash, Mikhail Budnichenko, told TASS in an interview.
The Vikramaditya (formerly The Admiral Gorshkov) was upgraded at the Sevmash shipyard. Since its handover to India in November 2013, it has spent more than 220 days on the high seas. The warranty period expired on November 16.
Budnichenko said a group of 23 specialists will be present in India on the permanent basis and address day-to-day issues, such as supplies of spare parts and equipment requiring maintenance or repairs. Also, it will be making arrangements for the annual overhaul together with a maintenance group from Russia.
All works are to be done under specifications and in amounts agreed with the Indian side.
