Rebuilt SLN base in Nedunththeevu officially opened

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 October 2008, 12:22 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) Northern region officially opened a rebuilt SLN base, fitted with new radars and other modern equipment, in Nedunththeevu (Delft), Monday, in a ceremony attended by top officials of SLN Northern region, sources in Nedunththeevu said. The base was destroyed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Sea Tigers in 2008. The previous SLN commander was replaced, and the newly appointed SLN commander of the Nedunththeevu base officially assumed duties at the opening ceremony.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Electricity Board (SLEB) inaugurated electricity supply to Neduntheevu from Wednesday using its generators installed in Nedunththeevu.

The destroyed base, however, functioned in a temporary facility with additional SLN marines brought to Nedunththeevu from other SLN bases.

The new SLN Neunththeevu complex is rebuilt on the same place where the earlier one stood.

Radars capable of detecting movement of boats and vessels between India and LTTE held areas in Sri Lanka have been fitted in the newly opened Nedunththeevu SLN base, sources close to SLN said.
