War Memorial

The Project Department is entrusted with the mammoth task of ensuring efficient organization, control, management and coordination of all functions related to planning and execution of civil works, special repairs, maintenance, Married Accomodation Project and essential services (water and electricity) in Station Lonavla in tandem with the Garrison Engineer. The infrastructure which is spread across 860 acres of the Base includes training, accommodation and other support facilities. From war memorial to trainee in-living blocks, from the arterial road network to sports courts, from drill shed to DSC lines, this is one department which touches everyone’s lives. Moreover, Shivaji is probably the only base in the Navy with two artificial lakes created by construction of dams and acting as sources of captive water supply for approximately 6000 inhabitants in and around INS Shivaji. The responsibility of maintaining and monitoring the good health of these dams also lies with the Project department and MES. The Project Department is also the flagbearer of Unit’s green initiatives and efforts towards use of renewable energy which were fittingly acknowledged when the Unit bagged the FOCINC South and CNS trophies for Best Green Practices for the year 2016-17.
