“It is an honor to be associated with a project of national importance, we are especially proud that in line with the ethos of Atmanirbhar Bharat, the modular Operating Theaters was entirely made in India,” says Aruna Nayak, Managing Director, Getinge, India.

India commissioned its first indigenously designed and built aircraft carrier INS Vikrant on September 2, 2022, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi commissioning it.

To cater to the needs of medical emergency on board, the aircraft carrier is equipped with a mini hospital of 16 beds, two operating theatres (OT) and a CT scan machine.

INS Vikrant has been designed by Indian Navy’s in-house Warship Design Bureau (WDB) and built by Cochin Shipyard Limited, a public sector shipyard under the Ministry of Ports, Shipping & Waterways. Vikrant has been built with state-of-the-art automation features and is the largest ship ever built in maritime history of India.
