Adding another high performance product to its diverse product profile, Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) signed a contract with Indian Army for supply of 12 high performance specialized patrol crafts.
The contract was signed on Thursday between Indian Army and GSL, represented by its CMD, Cmde B B Nagpal at New Delhi. The contract was bagged by GSL on competitive basis among public and private builders from India.
Though GSL had earlier built over 170 GRP boats for Ministry of Home Affairs and other customers, these crafts for Indian Army are to be built on completely new design and fitted with specialized equipment to meet the requirement of Indian Army.
The Indian Army had floated a tender couple of months earlier for the 12 specialized crafts which are to be supplied to Indian Army in 2021 itself. These craft will be constructed at GSL, Goa, and will be only few crafts in the world for such specialized operations, a statement said.
