Indian Navy about to Commission OPV INS Saryu into Service

Indian Navy’s largest Offshore Patrol Vessel INS “Saryu” will be formally commissioned into the Indian Navy by Air Marshal P K Roy, AVSM VM VSM Commander-in-Chief, Andaman & Nicobar Command on 21st January 2013.

This is the first of the New 105 meter class of Naval Offshore Patrol Vessels indigenously designed in-house and built by Goa Shipyard Ltd for the Indian Navy. The commissioning ceremony will be held on 21st January 2013 at Goa Shipyard Ltd.

This state of the art 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 in-house design development and ship build techniques. Well armed, the warship has been built to the specifications and standards required by the Indian Navy.
