Indian Navy Receives Naval Offshore Patrol Vessel

The first of the New 105 meter class of Naval Offshore Patrol Vessel to be commissioned  “INS SARYU”, indigenously designed in-house and built by Goa Shipyard Ltd was handed over to the Indian Navy on 21 December 2012 in a simple ceremony in Goa by RAdm (Retd) Vineet Bakhshi, Chairman & Managing Director, Goa Shipyard Limited to Cdr Amanpreet Singh, Commanding Officer Designate, INS SARYU.   Cmde R. Sreenivas, Commodore Superintendent, NSRY (Port Blair), Shri R. Choudhary, Director (Operations), Shri Sanjiv Sharma, Director(Finance) and other Indian Navy and GSL Officials were present on the occasion.

 

The vessel will help meet the increasing requirement of the Indian Navy for undertaking ocean surveillance and surface warfare operations in order to prevent infiltration and transgression of maritime sovereignty.  This Vessel is suitable for monitoring sea lines of communication, defence of offshore oil installations and other critical offshore national assets. Besides, the Vessel can be deployed for escorting high value ships and fleet support operations.

 

Designed and built by Goa Shipyard Limited, the warship is the culmination of many years of inhouse design development and ship build techniques. First of the series, the vessel is the largest Offshore Patrol Vessel of the Indian Navy and the largest constructed by Goa Shipyard Limited.
