Chinese Navy ships to help Indonesia raise sunken submarine Nanggala 402

22

There are reports from Indonesia that the Chinese Navy is ready to help Jakarta in raising the submarine Nanggala 402 that sank near the island of Bali. Recall that the submarine of the Indonesian naval forces stopped communicating during exercises with live firing.


A few days later, the command announced that the submarine had been found. The crew, which is 53 people, was officially declared dead.

According to the latest information, the ships of Australia, Malaysia and Singapore, participating in the search operation, left the area north of Bali after the submarine was discovered and the death of the crew was announced. The authorities of these countries reportedly told Jakarta that they could not help in lifting the submarine from the depths. According to the Indonesian Navy, the submarine is currently at a depth of just over 800 m. It is indicated that, on the basis of the data received, the boat's hull has "lost its integrity." In the reports of the Indonesian media it is said that, apparently, an explosion occurred on board the submarine, as a result of which three parts were at the bottom.

It is known that today Chinese ships have approached the area where the Indonesian Navy submarine is located. It is reported that the PLA Navy ships will help clarify the data on the state of the Nanggala 402 and, over time, carry out an operation to raise the submarine to the surface.

Earlier, Beijing offered its help. Indonesian President Prabowo Subianto accepted China's offer.

On the part of Indonesia, they plan to use the SKK Migas vessel, which is used for hydrocarbon production, in the operation. On board is a crane with a lifting capacity of 1,2 thousand tons. The submarine displacement of the submarine Nanggala 402 is 1390 tons.

    We would have been helped to lift the PD-50 from the bottom of the Kola Bay for hard currency. It should only be pulled out in shallow water, and there it would have been cut into blocks and disposed of.

    And the submarine did not accidentally fall apart into three parts? Friends are known in trouble! Well done Chinese!

      The submarine fell apart into three large parts and many small ones. They will raise something, the boat is not very large. The U-boat went out for torpedo shooting and had a civilian on it. I would not be surprised if it is the nose and its fragments that will be lifted.

        We are neither cold nor hot from this. Enough of other problems.

    I don’t know who will pay for it, help, it’s selfless help for me.
    But even if China provides the bill, it will gain experience, which is priceless.
    Such a disaster can affect every country with a DP.

      I remember the rise of our K-129 striped from a depth of more than 5 km.
      Opportunities are rotten or interest is at zero?

      Three ships were sent - type 925, a submarine rescuer for 10 tons, with a wide range of onboard equipment and descent vehicles.


      Brand new TanSuo2 - a carrier of manned and unmanned underwater vehicles. They have already made an expedition to the Mariana Trench.



      Well, and a brand new heavy tug - which is also completed with equipment for the task, to the stern functional platform.

        Thanks for the more detailed information. It's funny that we don't find out in the article itself, but perhaps the information would come in handy

      And here rescue and non-rescue equipment will be used.
      The work itself is also organized according to a different principle for the result - raising and transporting the boat, and not for a while, which is most critical in rescue work.

      If it were training to rescue the crew of the submarine, it would be approximately the following, the delivery of a special rescue bathyscaphe by plane, which has the ability to secure the creation of a transitional hermetic lock on the hull of the boat, opening the hull of the boat without water ingress, evacuating survivors, ensuring surfacing without development caisson disease. The boat itself does not need to be lifted, this is another series.

      There is no such thing anywhere near and the depth is too great there salvation was not possible the boat was simply crushed.

      They will certainly gain experience in deep-sea work of high complexity, get good press and a positive image. will be able to carry out difficult work by providing assistance to Indonesia.

      But there is nothing to do with rescue work here at all.

        what kind of plane with a bathyscaphe ... a rescue ship should already be in the search area for a submarine by a group of ships
