INS SARYU Joins Indian Navy Fleet

The maritime security of India got a further boost today with the induction of state-of-the-art new generation Naval Offshore Patrol Vessel (NOPV), INS “SARYU”, indigenously designed in-house and built by Goa Shipyard Limited.

The Vessel was formally commissioned into the Indian Navy by Air Marshal P K Roy, AVSM VM VSM Commander-in-Chief, Andaman & Nicobar Command on 21st Jan 2013 at an impressive ceremony held at the Goa Shipyard Ltd.

This 105 meter Vessel is the first in the series of four New class of NOPVs designed and built by Goa Shipyard Ltd for the Indian Navy.

In accordance with maritime traditions, the Commanding Officer of the Ship Cdr. Amanpreet Singh read the ‘Commissioning Warrant’ after which the National Flag and the Commissioning pennant was hoisted for the first time. The ship was dressed overall with various flags making the event more colourful.

VAdm K R Nair AVSM CWP&A, RAdm B S Parhar NM Flag Officer Commanding Goa area and Naval Aviation, RAdm (Retd) Vineet Bakhshi VSM CMD GSL and Senior Officers from the Indian Navy, Coast Guard and GSL were present during the Commissioning Ceremony.

INS “SARYU” 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.

This Vessel is powered by twin diesel engines and fitted with state-of-the-art Navigation, Communication and Electronic Warfare Equipment. One 76mm SRGM two 30mm CIWS Guns with Fire Control System together with Six Chaff Launchers form the main weapon package of the Vessel. Sporting a flight deck, the vessel supports embarkation and operation of a multi role Helicopter.

The Vessel accommodates 08 Officers and 105 Sailors. With 25% reserve fuel capacity and an extended mission duration capability of 60 days, the vessel is designed to operate all year round.   She would contribute substantially to the maritime surveillance capability and coastal security of India.

For GSL, this warship is the culmination of many years of in house design development and ship build techniques. GSL is justifiably proud of this milestone for Indian Navy in the history of Indian shipbuilding.
