The Indian Navy said an ultraviolet (UV) sanitisation bay to decontaminate things like tools, masks and clothes was set up at the naval dockyard in Mumbai, which is a part of the Western Naval Command. “Naval Dockyard (Mumbai) has manufactured a UV sanitisation bay to meet this emerging requirement,” the press release by the Indian Navy said.
“The UV bay will be utilised for decontamination of tools, clothes and other miscellaneous items, to control spread of the coronavirus. The challenging task required ingenuity to convert a large common room into a UV bay by fabrication of aluminum sheets electrical arrangements for UV-C lighting,” it added.
The facility is placed at the entry and exit points where it will help in mitigating COVID-19 transmission, the Navy stated.
