According to a statement here on Thursday, the five CG OPV project is a follow-on of 06 CG OPV Project, completed in 2017. With focused efforts towards ‘Make In India’, the indigenous content has been increased from 60 per cent, for six CG OPV Project, to 70 per cent for the ongoing five CG OPV Project. It is noteworthy that the contract for 5 CGOPVs was signed by GSL with MoD on August 26, 2016, and commencement of production of first vessel was formally started within twithin months with formal steel cutting on November 13 2016, at the of Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.
The Vessels are scheduled to be delivered between January 2020 to January 2021.
These vessels for the Indian Coast Guard are based on in-house design of GSL and will be fitted with most modern and technologically advanced machinery and computerized controls systems, making them the most advanced Patrol Vessels in service with the Indian Coast Guard on delivery. These 2400 tonnes vessels will be equipped with additional features like Quick Response Boats for rescue and anti piracy, Gunnery simulators and many more advanced features. The hull would be the most efficient form designed by GSL and would provide for fuel efficiency, crew comfort and excellent sea keeping qualities. The Shipyard also aims to bring down the reduced build period for OPVs for ongoing 05 CG OPV Project to 30 months against 36 months taken for 06 CG OPV Project. Towards that GSL has made good progress with 1st and 2nd ships achieving 44 per cent and 37 per cent completion. The 3rd ship for which the keel was laid today, has already achieved 25 per cent completion, the statement added.
