The contract for 5 CGOPVs was signed by GSL with ministry of defence on August 26, 2016 and commencement of production of the first vessel was started within three months with formal steel cutting.
 
“The yard is already in the process of executing 6 CGOPVs project. The next project of 5 OPVs will be built in a reduced build period of less than three years each. Four GSL built vessels, including two export orders were commissioned in August last,” said GSL, CMD, Rear Admiral Shekhar Mital.

The 2,400 tonnes vessels will be equipped with additional features like quick response boats for rescue and anti-piracy, gunnery simulators and many more advanced features.
 
These vessels for the ICG are based on in-house design of Goa Shipyard Ltd. When commissioned, they will be the most advanced patrol vessels in service with the Coast Guard.
