The lead ship of the Talwar-class frigates of the Indian Navy, INS Talwar, detected smoke in the Main Engine Room (MER) on Thursday. INS Talwar is undergoing a refit at Naval Dockyard Mumbai.
The smoke emerged because of the recent welding which the ship underwent on 2 April 2018. As a precautionary measure, actions were taken, including calling the Dockyard fire brigades.
After the source of the smoke was identified, it was immediately extinguished using onboard portable extinguishers.
