Covid-19: Naval dockyard in Mumbai develops UV disinfection facilities

The Indian Navy has said that Mumbai’s naval dockyard manufactured an ultraviolet (UV) sanitisation bay to contain the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This naval dockyard is a part of the Western Naval Command. The step was taken to protect the sizeable number of workers resuming work following the lifting of lockdown.

Large production organisations and dockyards are meeting the sanitisation needs for worker’s coveralls, tools, personal gadgets and masks.

The UV bay will support the decontamination of tools, clothes and other miscellaneous items and control further spread of the coronavirus. Decontamination zones were created by converting common rooms into a UV bay using fabrication of aluminium sheets electrical arrangements for UV-C lighting.
